Where to Go in Nashville, TN



Trying out to keep my travel checklists organized so when some asks me for recommendations, I'll have it on the fly. I'm actually not too sure if I used "on the fly" correctly. Doesn't it technically coincide with "wing it"? If so, then maybe I didn't use it correctly at all.


Regardless of colloquialisms, thought an organized list of places to eat, visit, and just enjoy would be nice to have.


As some of you know, it's been a few months since I've been in Nashville, TN. I definitely wish I had more time there, but guess I just have more of an excuse to visit again. From the friendly people to the nonstop live music, I can't say enough good things. It's a city where Johnny Cash plays the soundtrack of wandering souls filling themselves with barbecue and whiskey.
