This past week, my friend and roomie, Meridith and I traveled down to Nashville, TN to visit my friend Becca! The weather forecast called for rain every day that we were going to be there, but thankfully that wasn’t the case at all!! The sun☀️ was shining and it was hot…well it felt really hot since Ohio has only been in the 60-70s recently.
We started our trip off with exploring the 12 south area. This area is lined with so many cute boutiques, restaurants, and several cool wall murals! My favorite store that we went into was definitely Draper James! If you’re not familiar with it, Draper James is a southern charm clothing line by Reese Witherspoon! The storefront is captivating and welcoming, and the clothing is totally adorbs! Then we headed to dinner at a mexican restaurant and afterwards, we visited the Opryland area, and went to Madaam Tuseaudo’s Wax Museum! Meridith had never been to a wax museum before, so we decided to check it out. Most of the figures were country stars, and they all looked pretty real! It was a wee bit freaky because there was barely anyone else in the museum. After a full day of travel and exploring, we ended the night with dessert from NoBaked Cookie Dough.
The next day we headed to Loveless Cafe. On our trip last year to Nashville, we went there for breakfast, and it was so good that we HAD to go back! The wait might be long, but it was so worth it! After breakfast, we drove to Franklin, TN. The town was busy, but it’s a quaint town to explore! We enjoyed going into all the boutiques and seeing the variety of items each store has to offer. Later that night we went to dinner and then headed off to the Grand Ole Opry! Dustin Lynch was playing that night, and we know a few of his songs, so we decided to go listen! The next day we went to Centennial Park to see the replica of the Parthenon. Meridith and I had learned about the original in art history class back in fall semester, so it was neat to see the full scale Nashville version.
It was great to visit Nashville for a few days. We are so thankful for Becca and her hubby Musa (and their precious dogs) for letting us stay in their adorable home!!
