24 Hours in Nashville

Grand Ole Opry

We had a great 24 hours in Nashville earlier this month.  It was a quick trip – but we managed to do and see everything we wanted to in just one short day!

Where to Stay

The Hermitage Hotel – It’s the nicest hotel in Nashville, and also the priciest!  The hotel is in Downtown Nashville, a few blocks from the Ryman and honkeytonk row.  The rooms are a bit dated, but are elegant and classic in their design.  We had a great view towards the Bicentennial Capitol Mall.

Where to Eat

5th and Taylor

5th and Taylor – Located in a glamorously refurbished warehouse, 5th and Taylor is Nashville’s hottest restaurant.  It has great food, a romantic atmosphere, candles everywhere, modern art, and beautiful design. We love barrel ceilings!  This restaurant deserves a “Spaces We Love” article…

What to Do

Draper James

Country Music – If there isn’t a great performance at the Ryman or Grand Ole Opry when you’re in town, not to worry!  Nashville has the best country music in the world – and you can hear it at all hours of the day on Broadway.  Our favorite country bar was Honkeytonk Central – the bands we heard were incredible!

Visit Franklin – We took a quick drive to Franklin (a half hour away from Downtown Nashville) and loved it.  It’s a cute little town without much to see other than cute shops, greenery, and quiet country roads.  We enjoyed The Iron Gate, Haven Sanctuary of Style, and White’s Mercantile.

Draper James & Sprinkles – Located next door to each other on 12th Avenue South, this is a fun quick trip from Downtown.  Draper James is adorable, and you can never go wrong with a cupcake from Sprinkles!

Country Music Hall of Fame / Hatch Show Print – The Country Music Hall of Fame is a beautiful building with lots to see and explore!  If you’re a country classics’ fan, this is a must do.  We also enjoyed visiting the Hatch Show Print Museum and Store.  It’s a great place for souvenirs too!

Frothy Monkey – Best coffee shop in Nashville, hands down.

Thanks for a fun trip, Nashville!
