Nashville has been on my bucket list forever and while the trip was slightly shortened thanks to Covid, it didn't disappoint. While Nashville is known for music, I was in it for the art scene. I love cities with murals and taking mural tours has become one of my favorite ways to sightsee. I also always scope our dining options that are picturesque. Here are a few of my outfits, stops we made, and my full weekend Nashville Itinerary.
eat & Drink
I planned this trip impromptu with only 2 weeks in advance so considering reservations are normally booked very early, I really lucked out.
The first stop on my list was Dolly Parton's rooftop bar: White Limozeen. With rooftop views and 'all pink everything', this is one of the most Instagrammable spots in the city. You will need a reservation in advance but the rooftop bar is walk-in as seating is available.
The next day, I booked lunch at Sadies and I couldn't have been more impressed. I'm a sucker for a pretty atmosphere when dining and Sadies gave Boho vibes with Mediterranean food that was seasoned to perfection. To conclude the night, I booked a steak dinner at Kayne's which is a high-end steakhouse in Nashville known for their elegance. While I wouldn't say it was "toddler-friendly", they definitely made accommodations for my little ones.
For dessert, I popped next door to a cookie dough joint to appetize my totting toddlers who primarily live off of sugar at this point. Happy toddlers = a happy mama. No pictures for their privacy.
Saturday, we took full speed to Music Row and the Walk of Fame. There are plenty of art murals along the way and we loved picking out the stars from all of our favorite musicians. Nearby, you have both the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Johnny Cash Museum for the true music aficionados. An extra 5 minutes drive brought me to a spot I'd definitely recommend to those traveling with children: The Lane Motor Museum. This is the place where all your vintage car dreams come true and was a total hit for both of my children.
There is plenty to do and see in Nashville but I feel we pretty well conquered it in the weekend we had. Here is my itinerary of must-see's as my gift to you. Don't forget to stop to see the Parthenon, where the Percy Jackson movie was filmed!
