I almost forgot, and it’s worth making a second comment instead of an edit so you see the new mail ping: THE HARAHAN BRIDGE. It’s the southernmost bridge to West Memphis, AR, right next to the Metal Museum on Channel 3 Drive. You must visit this bridge as soon as possible. The weather is perfect for it right now.

Parking is on the southeast side of the bridge, and there’s an historic plaque facing the sidewalk as you walk up the hill to it. That sidewalk crosses the whole river all the way to Arkansas, and if you go out to the middle of the bridge at sunset at this time of year, the view over the Mississippi River is the most beautiful sight you will see in all your time in this city.

[Here’s a picture of it.](http://www.memphisdailynews.com/Editorial_Images/11803.jpg) That photo is oriented facing northeast, so you’re looking at it from the Arkansas side. You can see the sidewalk on the southernmost bridge. Those support platforms under it are accessible, but I don’t recommend going down there unless you want Homeland Security asking you uncomfortable questions about what you’re doing underneath critical infrastructure, but you should definitely check out the view of the river. There is always a wind blowing from the north over the river, so it’s a cool spot even on the hottest day of summer.
