A Few Favourites: Nashville, TN


“Nashville is the place where I first realized how impossible it is to look at someone and know what is inside them, what special something they possess.”  ~ Callie Khouri

Nashville has changed tremendously in the past few years. It’s a fast-growing city that has certainly assumed a distinctive southern hipster vibe: a blend of old country roots, new city dreams, and a deep love for good coffee, good food, great drinks, and even better music. People look to have a good time in Nashville, and I have to agree: there have been some really fun nights I’ve had in the city. Since I was there four years ago, it has become one of the top bachelorette spots in the nation.

My friend Leah calls Nashville the city of neighbourhoods, and true to form, a number of these fun little streets boasting coffee shops, restaurants, boutiques, and bars, are scattered around the city.
