There's a reason so many celebrities are moving to Nashville. IT IS SOO FUN! I'm talking Bacelorette party fun. The capitol of Tennessee is known for its legendary country music history and when you visit, you'll see why.. Music fills the streets in Downtown and it's energy is captivating. Downtown is also the best place to taste the city. Take a step onto Broadway St. and you'll really see what Nashville is all about. 

My partner in crime for this trip was my dad. I flew into Birmingham where he is currently working and we drove down to Nashville.

Outlined is everything we did while we were there + more!

accomodations

Omni Nashville Hotel Downtown

The café inside, Bongo Java, has the best coffee!

Food, drank & music

ACME Feed & Seed

Right on the river overlooking Nissan stadium is ACME Feed & Seed. There are two floors to ACME: The first is traditional southern food and music, while the second floor has a sushi bar. We went for sushi (of course). 

ACME had great traditional southern music that seriously made me fall in love with the city. See more on the vlog!

Husk

The best Bloody Mary in Nashville, according to a couple people we asked along the way. They weren't wrong. Husk had a great bloody mary. We were not able to stay to eat but the menu and food looked amazing.

Bourbon Street Blues Bar

You can hear the old fashioned blues music from blocks away. This place is one of a kind. Since opening in 1995, more than 100 blues musicians have graced the stage. Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar feels like dancing through history.

Bakersfield

After sushi and southern food we were ready for some chips and guac. Bakersfield is a tacos, tequila and whiskey kind of place. The food was good but they said I couldn't get my shrimp tacos grilled which makes me a little nervous. Great atmosphere and food otherwise. 

Activities

The Gulch

Shopping area with stores like this one I fell in love with called Two Old Hippies.

Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Right outside of the Music Hall and Museum is the stars walk of fame. Both my dad and I were able to find our favorites.

Parthenon

Not the real parthenon thats in Athens of course but a duplicate version that stands in the middle of centennial park. Before Nashville became Music City it was actually known as the Athens of the South. Because of this, in 1897 city fathers built a full on replica of Athens most historic landmark, the Parthenon. Of course it was only natural I started doing yoga on it haha. vvv

Johnny Cash Museum

A must when you visit Nashville. Although there really is only a gift shop to buy souvenirs, it's fun to spend a minute remembering Johnny. 

Grand Ole Opry

We did not get a chance to go to the Opry since it was such a short and last minute trip, but I am including it here in hopes that this will manifest into a reality. 

Nissan Stadium

If there is a super bowl at Nissan Stadium, I'm going. I don't care who is playing but I know for a fact I do not want to miss a super bowl in Nashville. The stadium in right on the river in the heart of downtown. Can it get any better???
