A long weekend in Nashville, Tennessee started with the Pharmacy Burger Parlor & Beer Garden, was made complete by going on a Haunted Tavern Tour, and ended with me wishing that we had a few more days to explore. With this being my third time in Music City, U.S.A., I wanted to make an effort to see more of the city outside of Broadway.
Our adorable Airbnb between Edgehill and Music Row.
My friend Melissa suggested finding a bookshop, so we wandered around until we did! This gem was stacked to the ceiling with treasures everywhere we turned.
If you're looking for vegetarian or vegan options, Milk & Honey in The Gulch has some delicious dishes (not to mention a great Chai latte). I had an incredible avocado and kale salad, along with fresh pressed juice.
The line for Biscuit Love, a hot brunch spot in The Gulch, wrapped around the building and went along the busy street. Desperate for lunch and a beer, we waited under the blistering sun while hosts passed out umbrellas to give patrons some shade (which led to us counting how many bachelorette parties we saw - we got to 14 before losing track). The wait was well worth it for the biscuits and the cute restaurant aesthetic.
Five Daughters Bakery in West Nashville was the donut shop of my dreams. This super Instagrammable spot was packed, and the donuts were an absolute delight.
Next time I'm in Nashville, I hope to visit a few museums I haven't had the pleasure of seeing yet, like the Patsy Cline museum, or the Johnny Cash museum. The same ghost tour company we chose even gives special tours where you get to ride in a hearse - and honestly, I will go back just for that. The best thing about Nashville is that it's always evolving and changing - meaning there are new things to see, food to sniff out, and live music to set the tone for a night out on the town.
