Nashville Guide

Eat your way through NashVegas

Nashville is much more than the country music capital of the world; it also has an insanely delicious, and ever growing, food scene. While this was only my second time visiting this vibrant city, I feel a sense of ease and welcomeness that I haven’t experienced many other places. Maybe it is because I’ve had family living there for the past 6 years, or maybe because the live music at every bar just makes me happy, but whatever it is, I’m here for it. Whether you are planning a family trip or a bachelorette party… or, a strange combination of the two, which is what we did… I’ve got the recommendations to make your trip worthwhile. A special thanks to my Instagram followers who provided many recommendations of spots I, unfortunately, wasn’t able to check out!
