So crazy little thing about me… I have lived in Tennessee since I was 3 years old and I have NEVER been to Nashville! I know! Crazy! But don’t worry, I quickly realized what I had been missing out on and I will be back many many more times!
Here is what I did during my first stop of this new journey in Nashville Tennessee!
Before I went I looked up the best things to do in Nashville (obviously) and kept hearing about the murals. So the first thing I did when I got there was check out all the murals!
Here is a great guide to finding these murals and more across the city! I have also added the addresses to the ones I stoped at below.
Five Daughters Bakery
I’m honestly still having dreams about this doughnut! They are a delicious mix of a croissant and a doughnut that take up to three days to make. After it’s cooked, they roll the 100 layer doughnut in sugar, fill it with cream, and top with a heavenly glaze. Have I made you hungry yet? Seriously you have to stop by Five Daughters Bakery and try one… or 20!
Draper James is a southern clothing line launched by actress Reese Witherspoon in 2015. Her first brick and mortar store is in her hometown of Nashville, TN! If you are a shopper you have to stop in! As soon as you walk in to her store you are greeted with a little cup of sweet tea! HOW SWEET IS THAT? Honestly, I don’t even drink tea but I still thought it was precious!
Obviously I visited Broadway at night to hear live music (one of my favorite things in the world) and grab a few drinks! There are endless places to eat, drink, listen to live music and dance on Broadway! This is where the party’s at!
Tootsie's Orchid Lounge
We had to stop into Tootsies! Tootsie's Orchid Lounge is a famous honky-tonk bar that has three stages with a variety of live performances every night by local artists!
Not only did I really need to see Nashville since I had never been, I also wanted to visit my sweet friend Beth! Talk about hostess goals! When I arrived Beth had the sweetest gift basket ready for me and did an amazing job showing me around the city! I’d say it was a successful first stop on my long journey!
