    You had me at BISCUITS. Holy moley. I forgot how much I loved Nashville until right now. You’re making me want to go back just to explore more! (The only time I’ve been was on tour and I was working my butt off, so didn’t get much time to explore, sadly.)

    Definitely planning an RV Camping trip to Nashville from BC Canada very soon. Looks like a lot of great things to see and eat! 🙂 The Biscuit French Toast looks amazing! 🙂

      Thank you! We had a blast visiting Nashville. I’m pretty sure our waistlines are still trying to recover from all the delicious food. 😉

    I went to college only an hour north of Nashville (WKU) but haven’t done at least half of these things. I’ll have to add all of this to the list next time I come. A cupcake ATM sounds awesome!

      So funny to hear that! I’m sure you could give us some other things to do and places to eat that we didn’t even think of. 🙂

    I’ve been to Nashville, but you list of activities makes me want to go back. When I was there, when we went on the Pedestrian Bridge, it started to thunder and lightening. I have never been so scared about lightening! We got off of there fast! I want to try Edley’s BBQ if I ever go back.

      Hello Stacey! I don’t think I could have stood on the bridge if it was storming either! Definitely go to Edley’s BBQ if you have the chance! The line is long but worth the wait.

    Great Post! I really loved Nashville but I was only there for a couple of hours! I went to the Parthenon which was pretty cool and had dinner and I think that was about it. It was a couple of years ago but I definitely need to come back one day! Loving the pictures! 🙂
