Favorite U.S. Cities: Nashville

I hope that y’all loved our stop in San Diego last week on our tour of my favorite U.S. cities!  I know that I’m excited to check out the places Heather shared!  Today we’re heading east and stopping in Nashville!  Earlier this year I read Moment Maker by Carlos Whittaker and so when I decided to feature Nashville in this series I knew the Whittaker family was who I wanted to talk to…because y’all, they really embrace life and so I wanted to hear their recommendations of what to do/see in Nashville!  Here is Heather’s (Carlos’ wife) list of what to do in Nashville!

Start off in downtown Nashville…

– Hit the bars!  Before 4pm kids can even go in and see classic Nashville!

– The Shelby Walking Bridge has a great view of downtown

– The capitol building.  Even if you don’t take a tour, the building is well worth a quick picture.  Plus President Polk and his wife are buried there which I think is pretty cool.

– Stop by Crema Coffee and Pinewood Social, they are the “hip” spots downtown

When you head to the surrounding areas…

– Head to Franklin and walk around downtown Franklin

– See a classic movie at the Franklin Theatre

– Eat at Merridee’s in Franklin

– If you’ve driven to Franklin, commit and head out to Leipers Fork and enjoy an evening at the original Puckets where you’ll find deep down Nashville

– Then take Highway 96 to the Natchez Trace Parkway Bridge

– Finally, head to Loveless Café.  Order their fried green tomatoes, hash-brown casserole, cream corn and biscuits.  YUM!

I absolutely love visiting Nashville and can’t wait to go back!  What is your favorite thing to do in Nashville?

  1. I’ve never been to Nashville but I’ve had so many friends move there! It looks like such a young hip place opposed to my imagination which makes it kind of…not.

    1. I think Nashville is a lot younger and hipper than it was ten or fifteen years ago! I know I love going there!
