Nashville, TN

SATURDAY MAY 28TH

  • Farmer’s Market: open 362 days a year, but Saturdays are when they are the busiest; they sell produce and other food stuffs in covered outdoor stalls and have a few restaurants and shops inside
  • Bicentennial park
  • Rymann Auditorium
  • Country Music Hall of Fame
  • Nashville Music City Center
  • The Frist Center for the Visual Arts: Art Deco building that had a very interesting Contemporary Art collection featuring art from the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas
  • The Gulch: new(ish) district where all the hipster yuppies live; very trendy food and stores; also where the famous angel wings mural is painted
  • Biscuit Love (The Gulch): warm southern biscuits that are well worth the wait
  • The Parthenon in Centennial Park: Nashville is known as the Athens of the South, so during their Centennial celebration in 1897, the city created the replica as a temporary exhibition. People liked the Parthenon so much that it stayed and was rebuilt in the 1920s. Most Saturdays in the Summer, the park will have live music from 12-6 with food trucks and the like
  • 12 South: low key neighborhood outside of downtown; home of the iconic “I Believe in Nashville” sign beside Edley’s BBQ
  • Frothy Monkey (12 South): I had the best latte of my life, called the Golden Monkey
  • Las Paletas (12 South): yummy popsicles (enough said)
  • Back Alley Diner: average food with below average live music
  • Music Row: all the bars with live music on Music Row are 21+ so yeah that was a bust, but it looks crazy fun if you can actually participate
