Notably Nashville | All My Favorite Places, Hot Spots and Must Sees


October 24, 2018

I feel like this post has been years in the making… oh wait, it has! I am constantly getting bombarded with emails, comments and DMs about updating my favorite must-dos when you visit Music City so I am going to share ANYTHING and EVERYTHING for you!! Most of you know I am a Nashville native, born and raised in this amazing, southern sweetness of a city–so I am including the total tourist must-do’s as well as a few sentimental shares that make me proud to call this place my home sweet home.

I’m adding a dropdown page for easy reference so that you can easily access this post under “Travel” on my main navigation bar, too.
