Kurilpa Bridge, Brisbane

We asked our Facebook fans: What cities should we feature? Tina Grandinetti and John Symonds both suggested Brisbane—"Australia's hippest city," Grandinetti says. Solar-powered lights illuminate the 1,542-foot-long Kurilpa Bridge, which gives pedestrians and bicyclists safe passage over a highway and the Brisbane River. The bridge, which opened in 2009, lands at the Gallery of Modern Art.
