Here’s How to Plan the Ultimate Nashville Staycation


Downtown Nashville is always a lively place to be. With honky-tonk bars lining the streets and other touristy sights, locals often take it for granted. However, there’s plenty to appreciate in this nook of town. You can find some of the best restaurants in Nashville and an array of colorful murals scattered through the streets. Grab a drink at a rooftop bar and walk down the brightly lit streets until you hear a sound that piques your interest.


Head over to Germantown to find even more music venues away from the hustle and bustle. This is Music City, after all. The Back Corner is one of our favorites where you may find fewer tourists. You can also find the Tennessee State Museum awell as trendy breweries and coffee shops!

East Nashville

East Nashville is peppered with its own exciting activities. Spend an afternoon reconnecting with nature in East Park or Shelby Bottoms Park to step away from your day-to-day routine. The Woodland Street area is also home to a few hidden gems, including art galleries and the Woodland Wine Merchant. Later, take a trip over to The Basement East for more live music to stay in the Nashville spirit.
