Nashville, Tennessee


This year I enjoyed my last spring break in Nashville, Tennessee. Over the course of 4 days I visited:

  • Centennial Park
  • Country Music Hall of Fame
  • Belmont Mansion
  • The Hermitage, Home of Andrew Jackson
  • Belle Mead Plantation
  • Frist Center for Visual Arts
  • Tennessee Capitol
  • Hatch Show Print
  • Robert’s Western World

I ate at 4 incredible restaurants (all of which I highly recommend):

Touring Nashville was a blast. My favorite part of the trip was actually learning the history of the city. The tours of the Hermitage, Belle Mead, and the Belmont Mansion were fascinating. And of course, the live music aspect made walking around the downtown area a ton of fun. Nashville’s Broadway is not quite the same as Austin’s 6th Street but the two are very similar, cowboy boots and all. There is so much more to do and see in Nashville. I can’t wait to go back, hopefully sometime in the near future!

  1. What would you say are the differences between Austin and Nashville. I have heard they are very similar, but I have also heard they are very different in various ways. Thanks!

    • Hi Stephanie,

      I was only In Nashville for 4 days but from that short trip I can tell you a few things I noticed.

      In my opinion, Austin has a greater “farm-to-table” culture. It is a very fit and trendy city with a big interest in organic food and healthy outdoor activities. Some of the restaurants we ate at did have elements of this culture but I think it is just more widespread in Austin.

      I also missed the town lake environment of Austin. Nothing beats the lake trail where you can find people paddle boarding and kayaking just about anytime of day. I’m not sure if Nashville has the same great tex-mex either. Austin is one of a kind when it comes to breakfast tacos.

      Keep in mind I am biased because I have spent 4 years in Austin and I have only spent 4 days in Nashville. Nevertheless, I hope this helps to answer your question!

      Thanks for reading!
