I've been really lucky to have spent some quality time in Nashville, Tennessee - and it's beauty and charm makes me want to visit again and again. Only a short two house flight from New York, I urge you to add Nashville to your itinerary next time you are state-side. With a vast number of amazing food options, constant live music, and that southern charm what's not to love?
The free printable guide is a detailed list of all the accommodation, restaurants, stores, and sights I'd recommend visiting while in town - and I've created a shorter must-do list below. Whether your love Nashville (with Connie Britton) or Nashville (with Jack White) I am sure there will be plenty to keep you entertained in my free printable guide - it might just convince you to book flights!
