Pro Tip

😎

Make some time to wander around while in Nashville, popping into any bar or restaurant that has the best music as you go. Beale Street is a great place to start!

What to do in Nashville

Girls Trip

MORNING

Anyone who has taken a girl’s trip knows that meals are a challenge. Especially breakfast. You have one who loves eggs, another who would prefer a salad for brunch, those who prefer a greasy spoon special, and some who always opt for a yogurt and granola moment. Adele’s is the last thing you would picture when the words “breakfast buffet” are uttered, but it’s oh-so-fabulous. With everything from a bagel and lox bar to salads, sweet pastries, meats, and more, there truly is something for everyone.

DAY

Take a stroll along the city’s 12South, which is a half-mile stretch along—you guessed it—12th Avenue South. There, you will find vintage shopping, coffee houses, bars, local boutiques, and more.

EVENING

Original home of the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium plays host to artists of all styles and genres. Take a look at their schedule before you head to Nashville and book a night of music you’ll never forget. After that head to White Limozeen, which is an allover pink Dolly Parton-themed bar that has a long list of house cocktails as well as French-inspired fare.

Family Trip

MORNING

Start your day off with a family-style meal that extends well beyond those that you arrived with. At Monell’s Germantown location, you’ll sit next to those you know and those you don’t, sharing a classic southern breakfast of grits, biscuits, meats, eggs, and more. What’s more, it’s all served up inside a Victorian manor that makes the experience all the more authentic.

DAY

All ages will enjoy the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. While you will learn all about the genre from inception to today, there’s also lots of flashy merch on display from Shania Twain’s “Don’t Impress Me Much” leopard getup to Elvis Presley’s car. After that, head to the Nashville Zoo, which plays host to more than 3,000 animals from over 350 different species.

EVENING

Ok, yes it’s true that Emmy Squared was born in New York City and not Nashville, but you’d never know that there is more than one location of the pizza and burger joint if you step into any single one on the east coast.

Romantic Getaway

MORNING

Let the day roll from one event into the next, beginning with Pinewood Social. Here, you’ll find not only food and drinks, but also a bocce court, pool, bowling alley, and more. It’s a great place to spend all day with friends, but might we suggest using it as a jumping off point for your romantic weekend with your favorite plus-one, as well?

DAY

At one point during your stay, spend a few hours walking up and down Broadway. Yes, with little destination or plan. The street is chock full of music venues, restaurants, bars, and all-in-one locales. You’ll hear music pouring out into the streets, neon signs that feel festive as ever, and wind up at the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge if you keep walking to the waterfront, where you will be graced with some of the best views of the city.

EVENING

You might not think that an auto upholstery shop is something of romance, but it is if you head to Pelican & Pig, a restaurant that has made its home in a converted location of just that. With a classic wood-fired menu of meat and fish alike, it’s the perfect intimate dinner destination to share a bottle of wine or try out the classic cocktails.
