I’m finally sharing my Nashville stories! My life has been a whirlwind lately, but I officially start classes today So hopefully I’ll get into a routine here soon.
Anyway, when I found out we would be near Nashville on our roadtrip, I was like I HAVE TO GO. It has somehow become a super hip place. I feel like it just used to be about country music! I like country music, but let’s be honest, I like visiting Insta-famous places more…
I hopped on Pinterest right away & browsed tons of articles highlighting the best things to do in Nashville. I also came across a lot of blogs talking about the “best Instagram spots” & I was like wow I’m going to love this place. Yeah, I loved it.
We got to spend an entire day in Nashville & I got to see everything I wanted, so that was nice because I was a little frustrated after Chicago! It was also not as hard to find parking. But I would definitely love to go back! I think it’s one of those places that always has something new to try.
The first place I had to see was Draper James, Reese Witherspoon’s store. Wow. So cute & aesthetically pleasing. They were giving out free sweet tea & had so many cute things for sale. The best part was the wall outside the store. It’s on the list of “best Instagram spots” & it was obvious because there were so many other people outside just trying to get a picture in front of the somehow famous blue & white striped wall. And right across from that wall is the “I Believe in Nashville” mural. (See top!)
Another cute place that I wanted to snap a pic of was Emma’s Flower Shop because it’s a pink building. It was already closed by the time we got there, but I did get a few pictures. It was hard to get a good angle because the main road is right by it, so don’t be fooled by those fancy pictures on Pinterest because it would definitely take some special skill & fancy camera to capture a really good shot.
On the same side of town as Emma’s, is the Parthenon replica. That was honestly probably one of my favorite things there because I felt like I was actually in Greece!
After tons of walking, we took a coffee break at Three Brothers Coffee & it had a really relaxed vibe & even better matcha!
The other thing I had to see was the wing mural. I think there’s another one in another big city, but it’s probably the most well known spot for a picture. There was a line for almost every place we went to get a picture so be prepared to wait & then pose in front of people. But the waits weren’t that long & the pictures turned out so it’s worth it!
The only thing I didn’t get to see was Amelias Flower Truck. I’m sure you’ve seen pictures of it on Pinterest or even Instagram. It’s basically a traveling flower shop! It was one of the top things I wanted to see, but the weather was kinda bad so we missed it. But hey, like I’ve said before, a great reason to go back!
I hope I’ll be able to talk to you guys more! And let me know what kinds of things you want to see because I don’t have anymore cool travel posts unfortunately
