Nashville City Guide!

Nashville city skyline

For the last stop on our fall adventure city guide series, we thought we’d do something a little different. Nashville is known for its murals, so we structured our sightseeing around some of the most Instagrammable spots in the city. We met up with our friends Jasmine, Brooke and Natasha who happily played tour guide and showed us that there’s more to Music City than country bars on Broadway (though those are good, too). 🎸 Scroll for fun neighborhoods to explore outside of downtown—and perfect spots to get the ‘gram 📸📸—straight from some super-stylish locals!

THE GULCH with Jasmine
hot spot for shopping and dining, a mile from the heart of Nashville

INSTAGRAM MOMENT: The famous What Lifts You Nashville wings.

Shop the look: Apparis Faux Fur Coat (love the unexpected army green!) | Allison Joy Snake Cami | Good American Jeans | Dolce Vita Booties

SWEET STOP: You will not regret stopping at Biscuit Love for bonuts (fried biscuit dough tossed in sugar and served with lemon mascarpone & blueberry compote). The lines are long during peak brunch hours, but it’s so worth it!

Shop the look: Susana Monaco Top | David Lerner Joggers (perfect with a sweater for work, too!) | P448 Sneakers

MAKE A RESERVATION: Inside the gorgeous Thompson Hotel, Marsh House is a must for fresh seafood and southern-infused cuisine—the perfect place for GNO or date night.

Shop the look: Peyton Jensen Jumpsuit | Kenneth Cole Pumps (snakeskin is a neutral—wear with everything!)

FRANKLIN with Brooke
a historic gem with unique shops, 30 minutes south of Nashville

INSTAGRAM MOMENT: The Franklin Theatre, an iconic landmark since 1937—you can even still catch a movie or live music here!

Shop the look: BlankNYC Moto Jacket (moto jacket + dress = favorite fall look!) | Peyton Jensen Dress | Dolce Vita Boots

BBQ FIX: You can’t go to Nashville and NOT have BBQ. Puckett’s is a must for mouthwatering smoked meats. Don’t forget the fried green tomatoes and fresh sweet tea!  

Shop the look: Sanctuary Waffle Tunic (the perfect layer) | Jamison Hoodie Cardigan | Spanx Faux Leather Leggings | Sorel Booties | Thirty-nine 42 Necklace

LIFT YOUR SPIRITS: Established in 1876, Gray’s on Main used to be a pharmacy. Now it’s a favorite for hand-crafted cocktails. The Anthym Spirit was named the best bourbon whiskey cocktail in the US!
