Nashville Skyline

Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville transplant Amy Stark ('19 genetics) offers her top seven things to do in Music City.

  • For the quintessential Nashville, spend a few hours enjoying live music and drinks at the Broadway Honky Tonks. They're a party by day, a crazier party by night.
  • Walk across the pedestrian bridge toward Nissan Stadium for the best skyline photo-opp.
  • Stop by Assembly Food Hall to find some of the best local restaurants in the city. Prince's Hot Chicken is my pick (but may be spicier than you expect)!
  • Grab coffee at Three Brothers and head across the street to explore Cen­tennial Park, site of Nashville's full­-scale replica of the Greek Parthenon built for the 1897 Tennessee Centen­nial and International Exposition.
  • Enjoy brunch at Frothy Monkey on 12 South, or hit Pancake Pantry or Fido in Hillsboro Village followed by boutique shopping. Don't miss the murals here and in the Gulch!
  • Catch a show at the Ryman Audito­rium, the Grand Ole Opry, or both!
  • For an easy-going night out, check out our local brewery scene. My favorites are Bearded Iris, Southern Grist, Diskin Cider, and Jackalope.
