Are you an introvert? Do you value quiet time, sweet moments alone, and great places to study or ponder life without a crowd? Great, us too. Here are seven perfect places in Nashville for people who hate crowds.
1. J&J's Market & Cafe
Located in midtown, J&J's is one of the most overlooked coffee shops in the city, but that doesn't mean it's not fantastic! The hidden gem instead proffers a perfect spot for those looking to enjoy a bit of quiet time - without the throngs of people.
2. McCabe Park
With a loop that measures over two miles, you won't run into anyone here. No, you're more likely to simply wave at that ultra-marathoner a couple times, or nod at the lone golfer on the green.
3. Radnor Lake
This stunning hike is revered for its great location and perfect loop length. You're bound to see more wildlife than people!
4. Portland Brew East
Yes, at certain times Portland Brew East can get a little busy. Their upstairs, though? Perfect to hide away.
5. Shelby Park Greenway
Shrouded in greenery and bursting with wildlife, Shelby Park is a great spot for a bike ride or a quiet walk.
6. Long Hunter State Park
One of the most popular state parks in the area, Long Hunter State Park is great for those of you looking for a hike by yourself. It's large enough that you'll feel like you've walked through wardrobe to Narnia. As in, unbelievably beautiful and perfectly alone.
7. Downtown Nashville Public Library
The downtown library is a stunning spot drenched in light and completed with high ceilings. It's a gorgeous spot to find a corner to read - alone, of course!
