The Gulch neighborhood is situated between Music Row and downtown. You can’t miss walking through this hip part of town for a bite to eat and get a picture with the famous murals. You have probably seen a few of these on your social media feed at least once. The Gulch has a trendy vibe with delicious restaurants, boutique shops, and street murals like the “What Lifts You” angel wings.
Broadway is the country-western version of Las Vegas, aptly nicknamed “Nashvegas.” If you’re looking for the nightlife scene, this is it. It’s home to the honky-tonk bars, around-the-clock live music, and an endless good time. Check out the artists performing in the bars and you might see the next rising star! There is also the Johnny Cash Museum if you’re looking for a little country music history to mix into your day.
Although it may look pretty gimmicky at first, this Nashville icon represents the city’s self-declared reputation as the “Athens of the South.” It was initially meant to be a temporary installation, but it was built with such attention to detail and historical accuracy, that the city decided to keep it. It has become increasingly popular with locals and tourists alike. This spot is great to relax in the park, eat a picnic, play Frisbee or football, or take some fun pictures. On a sunny day, this park is sure to be buzzing with people.
12 South is such a pretty and quaint neighborhood tucked away from the craziness of downtown. There are so many delightful cafes, charming murals, and chic boutiques. If you are in the mood to do some shopping, then I would highly recommend coming this way. Draper James, owned by Reese Witherspoon, has quickly become a favorite here. Also, stop by Amelia’s Flower Truck to make your bouquet! Then, head over to the Flower Garden mural to take a super cute pic. Along the way, check out the many adorable doughnuts, ice cream, and coffee shops.
