Today I’m talking about where to Eat, Sleep & Play in Nashville-Part One! My husband and I recently travelled there for some R&R for a few days, and man is it a fun city! It had such a great vibe there. The weather was a bit up & down while we were there, but that’s to be expected this time of year. There are so many areas of Nashville to visit for any desire you might have.
Where to Eat, Sleep & Play in Nashville
For great shopping, I highly suggest the Gulch that’s close to downtown which has an urban feel or Hills Center in Green Hills for walk-in, airy feel, with shops like Anthropologie(which I got a gorgeous turquoise scarf from that you can get here), Whole Foods, West Elm(which is one of my favorite shops), Lululemon(and y’all know I absolutely had to visit that store), and a few country music celeb owned stores. There were also several really fun clothing boutiques within the center, as well. 12th Avenue South area had a few high-end consignment shops, one of which, had Prada, Jimmy Choo, Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Chanel brands, and I still wasn’t able to afford them! It was a birthday trip for my husband, so I didn’t want to put him in too much misery with making him shop, so I honestly didn’t shop that much, but just enough to satisfy me!
Let’s start talkin’ food, shall we!!!!! I’m not sure where to even begin, because Nashville in jam-packed with restaurants for any heart’s desire, cuisine or taste! The first morning, we ate breakfast at Another Broken Egg Cafe, which was a block off of Broadway. There was a long wait, but we ended up just eating at the bar to save on time. I highly recommend their Bloody Mary’s, they sure hit the spot and were stuffed with an assortment of delicious veggies! I had a scrumdily breakfast sandwich with Avocado on it(of which I’m salivating just thinking about it). I had heard great things about Biscuit Love, however when we got there, the line was literally down the street and around the corner! So unfortunately, we didn’t get to eat there.
We ate dinner at The Tavern one night, and luckily got a table fairly quick. It had great ambiance and even better food! I had the cashew chicken lettuce wraps and my husband had the steak carnita taco’s like dish and both were phenomenal!
The second morning we were there, we drove out near the airport to visit the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center and ate brunch in one of their many restaurants. It was phenomenal and one of the most memorable foods were the cheesy grits. Oh my gosh, I could have eaten an entire plate of them! The Gaylord is enormous! It reminded me of being in a hotel in Vegas. It was full of shops, restaurants, convention ctr, hotel rooms, and tons of greenery & water features.
One evening we had heard great things about The Row restaurant, and if you visit, you must have the Bacon Queso Dip! I instantly regret doing this blog post as I lay in bed at night, because I am now STARVING! One side is their restaurant and the other side is a bar with live music, of which the girl singing that evening had been on team Christina’s on the Voice! We’re talking amazing talent in Nashville, you guys! I had no clue it was that competitive, but I see why, now. The row has traditional dishes such as steaks, BBQ and great salads, that is right off of broadway, and was nice because it was close to our hotel.
I’ll be posting my Nashville Trip Part 2, next week and I’m going to cover the “play and stay” portion of my trip!!! You don’t want to miss it!!!!
