Our Nashville Picks (Day #18)

People always ask us where to go and what to do in Nashville. So we thought we'd put a few of our favorites in one blog so we can direct you here when you need a little travel advice! This isn't EVERYTHING you should do, but a few things to get you started.

 

PLACES TO EAT: 

Pancake Pantry: A classic Nashville destination. Great Pancakes. You might think, "How hard is it to make great pancakes? Do they really taste that different than any other pancakes?" We thought this too. We were proven wrong. They really are THAT good. Go early to avoid the line...(especially on the weekends)

Fido: Right near Pancake Pantry in Hillsboro Village. Great coffee. Interesting food choices. Everything here is good. Breakfast all day.

The Perch: CREPES. Go get the crepes here. There are two Nashville locations. CREPES, CREPES, CREPES.

Loveless Cafe: It's a little far out of town, but the biscuits are worth the drive. Seriously, They. Are. Worth. It. You can even watch them being made right in front of your very eyes...it's magic.

Gigi's Cupcakes: Obsessed. Red Velvet.

The Pharmacy: The burger will rock your world. Also, try the Creamsicle Soda. Like, whoa. Their french fries are also delicious.

 

PLACES TO GO:

Downtown Franklin: Super cool shops, really good restaurants, and an overall adorable atmosphere. (This is especially true over any holiday season.)

Honky Tonks on Broadway: This is a Nashville must-do. There is always good music and a lot of energy down here. Check out Tootsies which is our fav.

Arrington Vineyards: Again, this is a little bit out of town (maybe 20-35 minutes depending where you stay) but is totally worth the trip. The perfect place to spend a spring or fall weekend afternoon. Drink some wine, have a picnic. Watch the sunset. Listen to some live music.

Radnor Lake: For the outdoorsy type. Go for a hike around this lake. It's about a 45 minute walk around the lake. You'll see deer and turkeys and turtles. It'll be lovely.

 

GO SEE MUSIC HERE:

Bluebird Cafe: This place has a TON of history! You might know this place because of the show "Nashville"...it's super cool and a must-do in Nashville.

3rd and Lindsley: There are always good shows here. Monday nights go see The Time Jumpers. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!

The Listening Room: Love that they focus on listening here, hence the name.

The Ryman: No explanation necessary. Epic.

 

There you go. Eat, see and listen...NASHVILLE. We love it. So will you :)

Happy travels.
