Oh, how I adore you, Nashville!
Hello beautiful people and happy Friday! Well, I’m writing this on a Friday so let’s see if I get to publishing it tonight like I would like to ha.
My family and I took a mini-vacay to Nashville a few weekends ago and it was SO much fun. I highly considered staying and not going back to SC, seriously, ask my mom. This was my very first time there and it completely exceeded my expectations, which says a lot because every person I know who has been there says it’s amazing. They were so right.
Saturday is a little bit different than the rest of the days because we met up with some family from Chicago that just so happened to be visiting there the same time as us! (small world). After we checked in to our hotel, we made our way to Broadway Street and decided to take a tour on one of those huge busses. It was really cool because this was my whole family’s first time visiting Nashville so it was a lot of fun exploring the whole city together. We were on the bus for about two hours and we got to see anything and everything that this city offers. After that, we went and had lunch next to Broadway Street at the one place that didn’t have an hour and a half wait for 14 people. After that, we all went to Brooks & Dunn’s winery, which was a blast and it was SO beautiful.
Football Sunday in Nashville is a whole ‘nother level of cool. We went to a rooftop bar on Broadway Street, loaded up on beer and appetizers and watched live country music all while watching the Bears game. We left about half way through the game and went and did all the touristy things! We went to the Country Music Hall of Fame, which was incredible. Then, we went to the Carolina Opry Hotel, which was insanely cool. We walked around, looked at the restaurants and shops, had some wine and ate some dinner.
Monday was probably my favorite day we spent here. We had brunch at Biscuit Love and I had the best blueberry french toast I’ve ever had in my life, and I’m not even that big a fan of blueberries. After that, we went to the Nashville Farmer’s Market and shopped around for a bit. After that, we went to two Distilleries and ate lunch at a Diners, Drive-Ins and Dines place and had an amaaazing burger. Once we were done there, my dad and grandma took Bray back to the hotel to swim and me, my mom and brother went out on Broadway for a little while. We bar hopped to multiple rooftop bars and it was such a blast. I also got to see one of my all time favorite movie bars in real life, Coyote Ugly. The thing I love most about Nashville is that there is always live country music playing everywhere you go! I love it so much.
I miss Nashville so much already and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t apply to 20+ jobs on the way home… CMT, hire me please.
