Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville is by far one of the coolest cities I've ever visited in the United States. You get the big city feel with the small town friendliness. A few weeks back, I traveled to Nashville for the first time with my mom for some meetings. When we arrived on Thursday, we ate a great lunch at Merchants in downtown Nashville. From there we walked around downtown looking at cowboy boots and records. Friday was our only full day there so we tried to fit in as much as we could in between our meetings. We went to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and shopped at a quaint, shopping strip next to Vanderbilt University. The Hermitage is an old, historic hotel and we couldn't wait to walk over and see it. We ended up eating lunch at the hotel restaurant, Capitol Grille, and had amazing soup and sandwiches. Our waitress told us that the Grille is connected to the capitol with underground tunnels and that the restaurant used to be a men's lounge. That night we went to a Third Day concert and ate way too much at Ruth's Chris Steak House. After our busy days, we stayed at the Hilton downtown and we even got a glimpse of Little Richard, who apparently has lived on the 10th floor of the hotel for years. My short trip to Nashville went by too fast, but I hope to visit again soon. If you are looking for an exciting, fun place to live or visit; go to Nashville! I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
