Most People Don’t Know These 10 Hidden Treasures Are Hiding In Nashville
Nashville has become a city of transplants, which means that finding a local is akin to finding a unicorn. They are few and far between, but oh are they magical people. They’ll turn you towards some of the more classic Nashville must-sees, turn you towards a few bars and coffee shops and the best biscuit in town. Heck, they may even invite you over for dinner! We pulled together a quick list to get your 2018 winter up and moving like you’ve been here your whole life — take a look!
1. A solid afternoon drive down the Natchez-Trace is pretty phenomenal.
At more than 500 miles, the parkway stretches deep into the heart of Mississippi and is great for a quick hike or a wander if you're looking to get out of the city.
2. Sky Blue Café is cute and intimate if you're looking to stay away from the crowds.
This cute brunch spot is located in East Nashville, and although you may be tempted by the lines at the Loveless Cafe or Biscuit Love, this is a true local gem.
3. The downtown Nashville public library is quite a sight to see.
The soaring ceilings and buckets of natural light that pour through the windows at the downtown Nashville library will make you want to stay and relax for hours. It's truly worth a visit.
4. We're forever a fan of Rosepepper Cantina.
Their margaritas are INSANE and we'll never get over the chips and salsa. We just can't.
5. Have you wandered the Scarritt-Bennett grounds?
This beautiful chapel is a popular wedding venue, but we'd recommend just bringing a book and curling up on the grass for a moment.
6. Sweet Sixteenth Bakery is a darling spot for locals.
Located in East Nashville, Sweet Sixteenth has the atmosphere of a local bakery (which it is), but it truly feels like the kind of spot that can't be real. The food is amazing, everything is homemade, and the owners treat you like one of their own. Saturday mornings simply couldn't be better.
7. Dino's is known as one of the oldest bars in the city.
It's true! This tiny spot located off of Gallatin Pike is also known for their fabulous cheeseburgers and fries. Snag a pitcher of PBR and you're set to go.
8. The flea market at the fairgrounds only happens once a month!
You're bound to find a treasure at this expansive flea market spot, perfect for a lazy day spent wandering and dreaming about your future Nashville home.
9. Or head on down to Percy Priest Lake during the summer months.
Kids tend to make their way to the cliffs (NOT condoned by us, by the way) but a dip in the lake is one of the best ways to slough off the humidity of the summertime.
10. Visit the Nashville Farmer's Market.
Open all year long, a trip to the Farmers' market in Nashville is a great way to support the local economy and eat a little bit fresher than that weekly trip to Kroger.
