Nashville adventure

Our girls trip to Music City was the perfect long weekend escape. With a direct 2 hour flight, we left after work and arrived ready to explore the downtown nightlife with dinner/drinks.

Our Airbnb was small but central, so we did all the touristy things.

The scooters were addictive and the best way to see the city at your own pace. We whizzed in and out of monuments, waterfalls, farmers markets, food stands and had an absolute BLAST. And only had a few Oops moments that didn’t produce any permanent scars.

No trip to Nashville would be complete without a visit to the Grand Ole Opry and ours was a doozy. Our Uber ride got us as close as possible but we got caught in a torrential downpour. So we walk into the bone chilling arena, dripping wet and have to try to dry out under the hand dryers in the restrooms. Our tickets are disintegrating in our hands but we finally make it to our seats, which are dead center half way up. Tessa’s ticket slips under the seats and we get to go on a scavenger hunt that had us in stitches. After the show, we take our obligatory selfies and grab another Uber. She was a riot and ended up loading us up with mini liquor bottles before dropping us at the local scrumptious BBQ joint.

We try the famous hot chicken and biscuits, tour the Country Music Hall of Fame, go out for a night on Music Row to check out all the local talent, visit the elusive Bluebird Cafe only to miss getting tickets by 2 spots ahead of us (fortunately we got to step inside for a 5 min glimpse).

We even crashed a free, CMT pop up concert across the bridge featuring a few up and coming artists. It was a glorious day made even better with free Dairy Queen blizzards…. any excuse to ride scooters again and eat ice cream!

Our final day we arranged a tour at the local winery and drank the day away!

Full of fun and exploration, Nashville is an awesome getaway that will keep me coming back for more!
