It's known to many as "The Music City" while others call it "Nashvegas". No matter what you call it, you know you'll have a great time here. NASHVILLE, you're pretty cool!
Granted Nashville is known for it's hot chicken, but don't limit yourself to just that! As many of you know, I never turn down tacos or queso, so our second night in the city we took up a recommendation and made our way to Saint Anejo. Kate had tacos and I had the best gourmet nachos known to man. And let's not forget, you can't properly enjoy nachos without a few beverages! I had a Mexican take on the Moscow mule -- the Mezcal mule-- along with a fresh margarita.
Besides delicious restaurants, Nashville honestly has some of the best shopping I've experienced. If vintage is your thing, Nashville is for you! There are several vintage and second hand shops all throughout trendy East Nashville. Even if vintage shopping isn't quite for you, there are several boutiques and other nation-wide stores you can visit. Kitty, was one of my favorite stores we visited while in East Nashville. I grabbed the cutest crochet swimsuit and cut off denim shorts all for less than $50!
Nashville has a vibrant cultural arts scene and we took full advantage of it! First, we made a stop by the Nashville Parthenon in Centennial Park and took a look at the massive Athena statue. If you search for things to do in Nashville, this will undoubtedly pop up. I'm a big museum lover, so it was definitely worth it to visit. Tickets are reasonable and you can take all the pics you want of the statue! Later that night we made our way back to Centennial Park to watch a free showing of the play A Winter's Tale hosted by Shakespeare in the Park. I'd never seen the play before but it was very good! Plus, they're running Antony & Cleopatra as well!
If you've never been to Nashville before, most people will tell you to visit Broadway Street. It's lined with honky-tonks and other bars, but I advise you to take a turn off of Broadway onto 3rd Avenue South and make your way to the Johnny Cash museum. Whether you're a fan or not, you'll leave with a better understanding of his work and what type of man he was.
A little photo op on the steps of the Parthenon never hurt!
And yes, I got a picture at the Kelsey Montague wings in The Gulch. I only had to wait in line for about 30 minutes but I'd say it was worth it. If you want to avoid the line, try going earlier in the day and probably avoid weekends if you can help it?
You were a blast Nashville! Can't wait to see you again!
