My time in Nashville, where to even begin? There are a million and one things I want to share with you all, so bear with me.
Every time a new year approaches, guess what the first thing I do is? Nope, it’s not plan out resolutions and new starts. I choose places I want to travel. Last year I went on a three week adventure across the pond and goodness it was good for the soul. This year I wanted to explore more of the U.S. So I chose one east coast and one west coast city. I decided Portland, OR and Nashville, TN. Both were just dreams and I truly had no idea i’d be going to one of them within the first month of the new year. But after some things just falling into place I was off to Nashville for almost a week.
To start, I can’t wait to go back. I had a list of places I wanted to go and today I will share some of my favorite spots I visited. But let me tell you if you need a soul searching trip, go to Nash. It is one of the most inspiring places that I have ever been. There are so many people pursuing their dreams. It is honestly incredible and I have chills just thinking about it. Plus it is full of amazing coffee (most important in my book), food and things to explore.

They have three different locations in Nashville and you can’t go wrong with any of them. Their coffee is amazing, aesthetically it’s beautiful and goodness just get their coffee soda or cold brew to try. I promise you will thank me

This might just be the cutest little town in America. The streets are full of cute boutiques, restaurants and everything in between. Make sure on your way out to stop at the Factory to do some shopping + pick up some ice cream from Jenni’s.

Fried Chicken… need I say more?

This shop has a few locations but it screams all things Nashville. I could have spent the whole day in there. ALSO, they have the nicest staff I have ever met. I talked to the girls who worked there for probably 30 minutes

Killebrew is located in the Thompson hotel and it is all things stunning. Their coffee (+ chai) was great as well!

Nashville might just be the coolest city I have ever been to but that is because of each of it’s very different neighborhoods. There is just about something for everyone. So make sure to park your car someplace and just walk. I don’t think there is a better way to explore.
Thank you so much for following along on all of my adventures! If you missed the airbnb I stayed in (it’s pretty freakin dreamy) make sure to check out this post. Hope today is amazing and goodness, you are amazing (don’t forget it).
