I’m super excited to link up in the Share My City linkup to show y’all Nashville, which has been my home for 5 years now (ahhhh how has it been this long??). Also, scroll down to enter an INCREDIBLE giveaway!
I moved down to Nashville in August 2009 when I started at Vanderbilt University. I stayed here for 4 years, other than summers in Maine/Boston, and moved down permanently this July.
Nashville is beautiful. The skyline, the river, it’s all great. But let me show you around the places that I go.
I know it’s pretty cloudy – it has been cloudy and gross the past few days – but this is a part of Hillsboro Village. Hillsboro has the famous Pancake Pantry, wonderful boutiques, a great hair salon, and probably my favorite cafe: Fido. I have spent so much time here over the past 5 years, and when I’m in Maine or Boston I always compare the cafes to Fido.
|Fido is my favorite location for work and the local latte – my favorite latte.|
Of course, Vanderbilt is also my place. I spent 4 years living here on campus, and I’m still around campus on a regular basis because of friends who haven’t graduated yet.
Vanderbilt is much prettier when it’s not gross March. So is Nashville as a whole!
Nashville is also known for the replica of the Parthenon in Centennial Park. A replica of the original, it even has an Athena statue inside!
And, of course, there is downtown Nashville. During the day, it is a place of boot shops, record stores, and plenty of tourist attractions (with a random American Apparel thrown in for good measure). At night, it’s a place of clubs, bars, honky tonks, and more. The Wildhorse Saloon has line dancing, and there is live music almost everywhere. After all, it’s Music City, USA!
