Travel Guide: Nashville

Hey there friends! I adore traveling, I'll pretty much go wherever life allows! However, like many, I'm always googling things to do, places to go, and where to eat in the cities I'm in. If someone I follow has posted a travel guide, or recs for the city, I read the whole thing. So with that spark, I figured why not curate my own?

Welcome to the first installment of my travel guide series. What better location to start other than Nashville, Tennessee? I may be a bit biased because I'm always traveling there, but hey - I have some good recs! So read to find out where to go, and bookmark this post for your Nashville Trip!

  • W Nashville, the Gulch

  • LA Jackson's, the Gulch

Where to Grab a Bite
  • The Twelve Thirty Club, Broadway (also great rooftop and cocktails, owned by Justin Timberlake)

  • Hattie B's, multiple locations but one on Broadway

  • Luke's 32 Bridge, Broadway

  • Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint, Broadway

  • Biscuit Love, the Gulch

  • Etch, Broadway

  • Killebrew, the Gulch - tiny bites but oh so dreamy coffee

Also, just a tip! Some places are super busy and you may have to wait on a line forever. So if you find yourself in this predicament and you need to eat asap, here's two options, one go grab a hotdog from the street (I swear, they're amazing). Two, check Assembly Food Hall on 5th and Broadway - they have a bunch of different booths with different types of food.

Places to Shop
  • First and foremost, literally anywhere in the Gulch...

  • Garage Sale Vintage, 5th & Broadway (pst, they also have a bar so you can grab a drink & shop)

  • Rustler's Hat Co, the Gulch

  • e.Allen, the Gulch

  • Kittenish, the Gulch

  • Boot Barn, Broadway

  • Posh Boutique, Green Hills

  • Molly Green, Green Hills

Things to Do
  • Visit the Johnny Cash Museum, it's truly the coolest thing to see, especially if you're a country music fan

  • Catch a game, if you can while you're in town whether it's seeing Titan's Football at Nissan Stadium, or a Predators game at Bridgestone (ps, I have not been lucky enough to be in town for either but, on my bucket list)

  • Again, another, if you can, do it - but if you're into country music and find an artist playing locally while you're there, buy the damn tickets you won't regret it. My boyfriend and I went to Luke Comb's at Nissan Stadium and it was truly out of this world

  • Go to Rustler's Hat Co and customize your own hat in the Gulch

  • Speaking of the Gulch, it's truly such a cute place to just wander around, shop, and grab some cocktails or brunch

  • Walk around 5th and Broadway, awesome eats, some good stores, and amazing ice cream

  • Go make a candle on your "rest day" at Paddywax in the Gulch

  • Visit Printer's Alley between Third and Fourth Avenue

  • Go see a comedy show at Zanies Comedy Club
