Day 1: Nashville Arrival and City Vibes
Nashville is a quick nonstop flight from most US cities, being almost centrally located in the US. If you grab a morning flight, you can check into your hotel, then grab brunch.
Start with Brunch
Kick off your day with a hearty brunch at Biscuit Love in the Gulch. Their Bonuts (biscuit donuts) are a must-try. Reservations not needed and these are worth the wait!
Take a photo at the "What Lifts You" Mural; visit the famous Gulch mural of angel wings and capture a birthday memory.
Immerse yourself in the Country Music Hall of Fame.
While on Broadway, enjoy the local shops and pick yourself up a pair of new cowboy boots or hat to wear out tonight!
After a long day, you must grab some of Nashville's famous BBQ at Jack’s B-B-Q on Broadway.
Day 2: Adventure and Indulgence
Hiking at Radnor Lake State Park
Get a dose of nature and go for a hike in Radnor Lake State Park. It's a serene escape just outside the city.
Try Nashville's famous hot chicken at Hattie B's.
Enjoy a brewery-hop tour with Music City BrewHop, Music City’s only hop-on hop-off trolley brewery loop that includes unlimited rides the day of your ticket to explore the Nashville beer scene.
End your evening by grabbing a late-night mega slice of pizza at the Mellow Mushroom.
Day 3: Last Day with a Visit to the East Side
Start with Brunch
Get a table at Milk + Honey Gulch. They have an amazing in-house coffee shop where you can grab a quick specialty coffee and light fare if you do not have the time for their sit-down meals. Show up early as seating is first-come, first-serve, but the food and service are top-notch!
Make a trip to the east side of downtown Nashville before you leave town for a unique bunch of eclectic bars like Up-Down Nashville. Here you can order a slice of pizza and have a drink while you play some of your favorite childhood arcade games.
