Have you ever been to Nashville? If you have not, then you should consider it. If you’ve never been to the South, then what are you waiting for! Nashville is an incredible city and one of the most fun places to visit south of the Mason Dixon line.
There are ton of great places to go in Nashville, but here are some of my favorites.
The best brunch I’ve ever had is at Loveless Motel and Caf. It is about a 25 minute drive outside of the city and is in the middle of an incredibly rural area. Martha Stewart called it the “best breakfast in America”. I would have to agree.
Sorry just some more thoughts on the Loveless biscuits. They are worth the trip to Nashville alone. Ok, maybe not, but they are the best biscuits that I’ve ever had, and every one of my southern friends agrees. That’s got to count for something.
If you happen to be in Hillsboro village, then you must stop by the Pancake Pantry for breakfast. Pancake Pantry is well known for their long lines, but the pancakes are worth it. They serve over 15 variations and there is a pancake for every taste.
Downtown Nashville is unlike any other city. The bright lights, country music, karaoke music help create a unique atmosphere. If you find yourself in downtown Nashville, be sure to visit Printer’s Alley, an off the beaten path alley with great bars. The Hard Rock Caf is also located downtown and is situated right along the Cumberland River.
The Grand Ole Opry is a Nashville staple and if you want to see live country music, there is no better venue for it. Every legendary singer has played here, from Johnny Cash to Hank Williams, and if there’s a show while you’re in town, it is worth checking out.
Finally, if you are in Nashville on a nice spring, fall or summer day, be sure to check out the beautiful Vanderbilt University campus. It is a gorgeous campus and is also a national arboretum.
