Everyone goes to Nashville for the music, but I go for the photography. It's a beautiful city, and it has a wonderful skyline. Most folks shoot it from up on the Shelby St Bridge - which is a great view - but I recommend crossing over the river and getting down on the banks, where you can get this view. It's hard to beat during an amazing sunset! From http://nomadicpursuits.com/top-photo-spots-in-nashville/ Cool hot dog stand ! I was going to try one but.... My ulcer talked me out of it . The camper is sweet. I think it's an old converted 12ft Shasta camper. Surrounded by bars for blocks there is usually a line all night long. #lateplate This is actually now called the quality inn, but it's still got a super sweet pool. Prices in January are around 100 dollars a night. :) Beautiful sunset over the Percy Priest Lake...💙 Blue hour over the Cumberland River in Nashville with the General Jackson paddle wheel boat. #waterlust #blue #aquatrove #hometown
This 19th century Heavy-stone Richardsonian-Romanesque design railroad station opened in 1900 and for more than 75 years served the passenger operations of eight railroads providing passenger service to Nashville. As the popularity of train travel declined, the station fell into disrepair and was closed in 1979. It officially opened as a hotel in 1986, but was not profitable. A new investor group bought the hotel out of bankruptcy and it was re-dedicated on October 9, 2007 after an $11 million dollar renovation.

It has a small upper loft sitting area accessible by a cool curved bannister staircase. The walls are plastered with dollar bills on which people have put their names, witticisms, favorite teams, and more than a few crude remarks. Imagine my surprise when I found this dollar !! Since I DID find this.... randomly.... by coincidence... Especially since United States Code 18 states it is illegal to deface U.S. money.....Darn Those Crazy Kids !!!

A small alley filled with blues clubs Downtown Nashville When in Nashville....you've got to have smoked brisket with a smoky, tangy barbecue sauce on a butter toasted bun and I love the old brickwork of this 1910 building which originally housed American Motor Works. Now it is the home of a distillery, some boutiques, a music venue and Antique Archeology--home to American Pickers, the popular television show.

The interior doors of the Parthenon, an exact replica of the original in Ancient Greece, are bronze and weigh 7.5 tons each. They are 7 feet wide, 24 feet high, and 1 foot thick. They are considered to be the largest matching set of bronze doors in the world. The doors are balanced on steel hinges with ball bearing collars at the top and bottom so they move easily. The Parthenon in Nashville houses a 42-foot gilded Athena that is a replica of the original in Ancient Greece. The sign next to the doors say I love checking out my city from different vantage points. Downtown Nashville at sunset along the Cumberland River.

Being a novice, I ordered it mild, it was tasty but damn hot! Originally built for Tennessee's 1897 Centennial Exposition, this replica of the original Parthenon in Athens is full scale and contains within a full scale recreation of the 42-foot statue Athena and a small art museum. There appeared to be a lot of lighting pointed at the building, so I can only imagine how impressive it looks after dark. Seven days/week, 362 days per year-you can purchase fresh produce, jams, honey, canned goods. Eat from 15 different restaurants. Peruse a flea market or a garden center. Elvis has left the building! The name of this shop says it all. Specializing in metal art and there is a great coffee shop right next door called Headquarters. West Nashville is worth exploring. #blue #lovemytown What a great display!

In 1990, a full scale replica of Athena Parthenos was constructed in the Nashville Parthenon. It stands at 42 ft tall and decorated as it would have looked like in the original Parthenon in Athens. Yup.... Another Hard-Rock... I at at one once... About 20 years ago. This is the same pedestrian bridge lit up at night. There are little observation decks that pop up all along the length of the bridge...we passed an impromptu party going on in one of them 😃. Tonight it's green for St. Patrick's Day... The 42ft statue Athena Parthenos, to give some scale to the photo, the statue of Nike in her right hand stands 6ft tall. Athena may be the catch-all of Greek goddesses, she is the goddess of is wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. Amazing Sunday night Great place to spend some relaxing time outdoors This is a small art museum near downtown Nashville that hosts a couple exhibits at a time. It's free on Thursday and Friday evenings for students! #colorful View from the Encore building downtown #nashville. With the ever changing skyline, it's nice that some things will always stay the same. #blue #musiccity #tennessee A doughnut turned cinnamon roll. It was even more delightful than I thought it would be. This Nashville coffee and crepe shop has cool decor and scrumptious food.

No cover, cheap beer (no wine), and a An example of the Newcomb Pottery Enterprise that emerged just after the Civil War when the American South tried to reinvent itself. This radical experiment allowed Southern women to train as artists and support themselves financially as a collective.

Nine acres of indoor gardens, cascading waterfalls and an indoor river with its very own flatboat river tour. This place is HUGE! They take their kitchen closes time very seriously! Don't be at the end of the line near closing because they won't take your order at the strike of the hour even if you've been waiting in line! Great looking fresh produce & other foods such as grass fed beef. One of the few honkytonk bars on the Broadway strip that appeal to the locals, this bar is a chill alternative to some of the Times Square-type madness going on all around it. The music favors old country over new, appealing to different crowds. This is my view from the top of the bridge. Fun, vibrant Nashville awaits! My kids really enjoyed it, much more than I thought they would and we aren't big country fans. 
Hotel lobby downtown Nashville This old standby is keeping traditional bluegrass alive in Nashville. There's a Sunday night bluegrass jam every week. #livemusic One of the most popular coffee spots in Nashville: incredibly over priced, but aesthetically very pleasing. Broadway Street is the place to hear live country music in Nashville (though I'm sure that's no secret). In the area, there is a chocolate shop called the Goo-Goo, where they invented the first ever peanut cluster chocolates. They're so good and you can see them make it too! AT&T Building in Nashville -- looks like Batman. (April 2016) A great spot within walking distance of downtown! Offers a decent view of the city and excellent espresso! The brisket, and potatoes.❤️😋 The Texas sanwhich literally has all their meats in it. ❤️😘
#food A little on the dry side but still amazing. This knot of flaky pastry is like a croissant-style cinnamon roll. Five Daughters Bakery is hip and popular as can be. This iconic venue once The Union Gospel Tabernacle and home of The Grand Ole Opry House still retains it's Gospel roots, amazing acoustics and some kind of essence I can't put a name to. We saw Mudcrutch (Tom Petty) here last May and it was magical. Taken with my phone...the best camera is the one in your hand. Nashville 2017, nice place to visit. Fun time in Nashville and a great October festival! When exploring downtown Nashville, see the war memorial statues on the plaza and visit museums on military and TN history. #WeekendGetaway Cool train right by river and Parthenon! Great park in the middle of Nashville! Come on a Monday night for The Time Jumpers. Yull be glad ya did! (come early to get a seat) They have both kinds of music here. Country AND Western . Yeehaw y'all !! Tootsies is one of the best honky-tonks around and has some the best kick-ass music you'll hear. Get the combo plate. Good Mac-n-Cheese too. The Goo Goo Cluster originated in Nashville, TN. Best music venue in the The best local country music you will ever here. It doesn't get better than Nashville. The beautiful fountain right outside the back courtyard. There are some stone benches around to sit on and get a little peace and quiet. This little dive bar serves up picnic tables, metal folding chairs, cheap beer and snacks, and bluegrass jam sessions every Sunday night. Get there early (8PM) for a good seat, but you can come and go as freely as the musicians do. And it's free. And it's wonderful! While at the weekly farmers' market, have lunch at the food court with many good choices ranging from barbecue to crepes. #Delicious #WeekendGetaway The back courtyard of the symphony hall. With the gates open to the public, I wandered in around 9:00 at night with virtually no one around (everyone was partying a block away on Broadway!) It was such a romantic and beautiful spot. Wonderful greenhouse garden store next to the Nashville Farmers Market. Plants and pots and pretty things.
