My favorite place is Madison Cnty Courthouse Square

because there are green areas in or near, good food and drink (moderation), and is a hub for buses to other enjoyable places.

  1. We rode bikes to Sam and Gregs on Thursday for pizza and beer, and found it very enjoyable. I only lament that the two lane road was there taking up space. I mentioned to my friend the idea of removing one lane to increase the outdoor ambiance of the restaurant area. His response was remove all the traffic. That is something to think about. Does the square really need two lanes? Handicapped parking would still need access, but do they need two lanes and do they need to drive all the way around the square?

  2. Cities in Europe have had great success in banishing personal vehicle traffic from downtown areas and creating pedestrian zones in their place. I agree that this is a good idea. And downtown needs more restaurants and housing. It is slowly coming about.

  3. Here is one city in Europe that has engineered such an town center that pedestrians and bikes reign supreme. Huntsville has thousands of engineers, you'd think we'd figure this out a little sooner. How can you find your muse? Ride your bike. The music in this video has a nice beat. Enjoy.
