How are you? If you follow me on Instagram, you’d probably know that I was in Nashville, Tennessee last week for a good friend’s bachelorette party. While I thought being there for five nights was going to be way too long of a time to be there, we found ourselves barely having enough time to do everything we wanted to do! I had a great time on this trip, and I’ll definitely be back again! From wineries to country bars, there were so many great places we got to try. Keep reading to see my recommendations and some suggestions on fun things to try while you’re in this awesome, fun, yee-haw city!
Our first day there we went horseback riding at Natchez Trace Stables. For those of you who know me, you know I’m ~not an outdoorsy person; I was mentally preparing myself for this experience for months. I’m so glad I got out of my comfort zone and participated in this beautiful experience! The family-owned stable is located on the Tennessee countryside (Primm Springs, TN to be exact) about an hour away from Nashville. We luckily had great weather during our ride and got to see some really beautiful, nature-filled scenery. My only complaint was how difficult it was to get an Uber back- I definitely recommend renting a car and driving there yourself so you’re set on your transportation with no stress. The family/employees were so kind and drove us about 30 minutes to the nearest town to be able to get an Uber back to Nashville! Although I slightly felt like I was stranded in the middle of no where for about .5 seconds, it was definitely worth the experience and I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to go horseback riding along a beautiful trail.Arrington Vineyards is about 35-40 minutes from Nashville and is 100% worth doing- especially if you love wine like I do. We did the Premiere Experience, which included a tour of the winery and a wine tasting with food pairings. I loved it and I’d definitely go back next time I’m in Nashville, but I’d probably just buy a bottle and some food from their food truck and just do it picnic style. It’s a great experience for all my fellow wine lovers to try! Plus, great there’s scenery for the ‘gram.
Lastly (and maybe my favorite): bar hopping! You can never go wrong with hitting Broadway and making your way through all the multi-level rooftop bars. Listen to live music, have a cold beer, and line dance with all your friends while meeting some new, awesome people and having the time of your life. My favorite bars from our Sunday Funday were Dierk Bentley’s Whiskey Row, Kid Rock’s Honky Tonk, and Honky Tonk Central. There are a million options, so check them all out and decide which you like best for yourself!
I’m not going to go into detail about all the food, but let me just tell you that everything we ate was amazing. From brunch, to dinner, to snacks in between, check out these places when you’re in Nashville.
- Hattie B’s Hot Chicken
- Milk & Honey
- Pinewood Social
- Acme Feed and Seed
- Biscuit Love
- Liberty Commons
- Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar
We had so much fun every night there. We stuck to the bars on Broadway just because there was always something fun going on. My favorite? Jason Aldean’s- hands down. The music was always great and the crowd was so fun. We stayed there all night our first night in town because we didn’t want to leave to go anywhere else!
There’s everything (well maybe not everything) you need to know about Nashville, TN! I had an awesome time on my trip and think it’s a great place to head on a girls trip or with a big group of friends. The drinks are cheap, the food was great, and you can never have too much country music.
See you at your local honky tonk,
