Nashville travel tips

1) See how Nashville's pioneers lived at Fort Nashborough

Located on the banks of the Cumberland River at 170 1st Avenue in Nashville, Fort Nashborough is free to visit and gives you a depiction of life in pioneer days. Start your exploration where James Robertson first led settlers across the frozen Cumberland River in 1780. The views of the river with an authentic village on the bank are fantastic!

2) Experience a relaxed atmosphere in East Nashville

Unlike downtown Nashville, East Nashville will show you more down-to-earth local life. It is home to funky bars, trendy restaurants, coffee shops, and cute boutiques. Coffee connoisseurs will relax with a cup of cappuccino at the Slow Hand Coffee + Bakeshop at 1012 Gallatin Avenue; women will find a lot of great accessories and clothes at the Anaconda Vintage shop at 1062 E Trinity Lane.

3) Snack at Mitchell Delicatessen in Nashville

Located at 1306 McGavock Pike in Nashville, Mitchell Delicatessen offers you made-to-order classic sandwiches with natural ingredients from local farmers. Relax on their patio while eating. Local Benton's bacon is a must to add to your sandwich. You can buy some cheese and meat there separately as well.
