USA Today released nominees for its 10Best feature, and Nashville is among the cities up for “Best Riverwalk.”

Riverfront Park is up against 19 other cities, including some of NASHtoday’s sister markets (we see you, SATXtoday, BOStoday, and INDYtoday).

You can vote for Riverfront Park once per day until polls close on Monday, Feb. 6 at 11 a.m. USA Today will announce the 10 winning riverwalks on Friday, Feb. 17.

Though the obvious winner is abundantly clear to us, here are a few things that we think make Riverfront Park extra special.

  • Riverfront Park 🤝 fall foliage (‘nuff said). Plus, we love seeing kayakers on the Cumberland in warmer months.
  • The park was established in the early 1980s to commemorate Nashville’s river history.
  • The park’s cherry blossom trees that bloom in the spring.
