Nashville is one of the hottest destinations in the USA right now.
Known worldwide as the home of country music, Nashville has always been a hotbed of tourism, but these days it’s seeing one of the biggest growth rates in the country. People are flocking to Music City and it’s obvious why; it’s got everything you could ever want in a hip, up-and-coming town.
Today, we’re going to talk about some of the best kept secrets in Nashville. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not all honky-tonks and hot chicken. If you’re planning a move to the heart of Tennessee, then you’ll want to do as the locals do, not as the tourists do, so let us help you.
1. Corsair Distillery
Everyone in the world is familiar with Tennessee’s main whiskey export, but what only the Nashville locals know is that this state is home to some of the finest distilleries in the whole country. Look no farther than Corsair Distillery, located right on Clinton Street, where you can sample award-winning beers and whiskeys on their “brewstillary” tour for only $8.
2. RCA Studio B
You don’t have to look hard to see how prominently country music figures into the Nashville ethos. Our entire tourism industry is about getting people down on to Broadway to check out all the country bars and honky-tonks. The real music historians will take solace in places like Ryman Auditorium and other sacred venues, but few venture into RCA Studio B.
This is where the King himself recorded over 200 songs, many of which were massive hits, over several marathon sessions. When you go, keep an eye out for the Christmas lights that are still hanging after Elvis hung them up during the session for “Blue Christmas” all those years ago.
3. 12 South Neighborhood Art
The 12 South neighborhood is off the beaten path, a little way out from Broadway, but a trip there will do you some good. Not only is it home to dozens of great shops and delicious restaurants, but that’s where the majority of the city’s street art is located. Hip floral murals, the “Make Music Not War” design, and many others that are perfect for your Instagram page cover the walls of 12 South.
4. Five Points
Another one of the hippest neighborhoods in Nashville is five points, which has really been built up over the past 20 years. Again, it’s home to a lot of the best restaurants and bars in the city, so you won’t have any issue finding ways to kill time.
The Shoppes on Fatherland is where you’ll find great book shops, clothing stores, and vintage shops. There are also a few galleries that host events from time to time, which aren’t to be missed if you’re into that kind of thing.
