Nashville

Whew! We packed a lot in to our two day trip to Nashville. We woke up early on Saturday morning and hit the road south. I love the drive through southern Kentucky with all its green rolling hills. When we arrived, we headed straight for the Warner Parks where we did our long run of the week. After that, we headed over to our Airbnb rental in East Nashville. We had a private suite on the top level of a house, and our hosts were more than helpful when it came to deciding what to do next.

In the afternoon we went to Centennial Park, where we walked around the pond, checked out the Parthenon, and wandered around the art and craft fair that was happening on the grounds. Soon it was time for dinner. We had an absolutely delicious meal at The Wild Cow, which you can read more about here. After our early dinner, we took a Lyft into downtown – we got three free rides when we downloaded the app, and another from a code given to us by our hosts; it was much cheaper than parking. There, we strolled along the First Saturday Art Crawl, checking out local art, and for me, wine. The last thing we did before turning in early was get ice cream in Five Points.

Sunday morning was relaxed. One of our hosts’ cats crept upstairs and joined me for coffee in bed. We gathered up our things, and after checking out, made our way back downtown. We felt very southern over brunch at Biscuit Love, and walked off our grits at the state capitol. Our final stop was the Nashville Farmer’s Market, which didn’t have much yet this season, and neighboring Bicentennial Capitol Mall.

I loved Nashville. I appreciated the city’s blend of old southern roots and up-and-comingness (is that a word?) I’m already thinking about planning another trip for us for my birthday this fall…
