The 7 Best Places To Hide In Nashville In The Event Of A Zombie Apocalypse
Ah, yes. The ever-present fear of a zombie apocalypse. With all the tv shows and movies about our impending doom, you’re sure to have pondered the thought of something happening here in Nashville, haven’t you? We definitely have! If the living dead ever come screaming down your street and it’s time to head for the hills, you may want to check up on these spots first – they just might save your life.
7. East Nashville
Here's the thing: we all know how freaking difficult it is to get in and out of East Nashville, the area hemmed in by highways and the Cumberland River - and its that frustration that makes this a great place to hideout when the living dead appear. It will be easy to block off entrance paths and keep people around the perimeter, watching for an ambush. Plus, the thoroughly extensive Shelby Park is great if you need to head to the woods to hide. We're also pretty sure all the hipsters on the east side of town have watched, "The Walking Dead" over and over, so they're sure to have a few tricks up their sleeves.
6. The Pinnacle Building
This tall and imposing building downtown is great for those of you who were stuck at work during the siege and need a way to get to higher ground. The mirrored building may confuse the impending zombies, and the ability to get high above the ground is prime.
5. Fort Negley
Almost completely abandoned, we doubt any zombies will be making their way up the hill to ol' Fort Negley. Its central location makes it a great place for those of you caught downtown or in your homes, and hey - it was the largest inland fort during the Civil War, which means it may just prove helpful TWICE.
4. The Parthenon
Who's going to look for you in the Parthenon...? No one, that's who. Stuck hard in the center of Centennial Park, you can duck in and out of the stunning pillars and even hop in the neighboring Watauga Lake if you need to hide. This place is great for its proximity to Vanderbilt, which we'll go so far to guess will serve as the main hospital for those hurt.
3. The top of the AT&T Building
Like the Pinnacle Building, the AT&T building would be a great place to hide if you can get to the very top. You'll be able to see the whole of the city, and a vantage point like this would be necessary to survive the apocalypse. Plus, you're bound to have solid cell service if the towers don't get knocked down...
2. Union Station Hotel
The Union Station Hotel is a stone-laden building that will protect you from, well, anyone. Nobody will be breaking down these walls, and with the clock tower at the front and rooms that tunnel below the surface, the hotel just may manage to save a couple of lives.
1. Beaman Park
If you can make it out to Beaman Park, you just may be the only survivors of the Nashville zombie apocalypse. Pack some food and a blanket or two, but the community area is tucked away and hidden from the whole of the city. It's here that you can find water and hunt for food, where you'll be hidden from wandering, dead eyes and perhaps live out the rest of your days amongst the quiet of the Tennessee woods.
