9 Awesome Things to Do in Nashville Tennessee

9 Awesome Things to Do in Nashville Tennessee

What do you prioritize when you visit a new a new city? We usually prioritize two things: food and photos (and now trying to catch new Pokemon 😅). Recently, Logitech sent us on a road trip with their ZeroTouch app to Nashville (which was also highly recommended by many of you. Thank you!). We really enjoyed our time there and can’t wait to visit again. If you’re headed to Nashville (or thinking about moving there), here are some awesome things we think you should check out:

9 AWESOME THINGS TO DO IN NASHVILLE TENNESSEE

1. The Parthenon in Centennial Park

2500 West End Ave, Nashville, TN 37203

Yes, we’re talking about the same Parthenon that’s in Athens, Greece. In Nashville, there is a full-scale replica at Centennial Park near the Vanderbilt campus. It’s a really nice park to walk around.

2. Eat Hot Chicken

This is the local Nashville specialty that’s worth a try! Everyone has their own opinion on what is best, but we noticed a lot of people point you towards Hattie B’s. It was closed on Sunday, so we ended up trying Helen’s Hot Chicken and Party Fowl instead. According to our friend, who has tried every hot chicken place in the area, Party Fowl is the best. We enjoyed both, but I think we have to go back and try all the others to know for ourselves what’s best! ;)

3. The Hermitage

Rachels Ln, Tennessee

This mansion was once home to Andrew Jackson and is still home to many of his belongings. Spend a day touring the mansion, garden, and his tomb.

4. Walk the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge and See the Nashville Skyline

592 S 1st St, Nashville, TN 37213

Nashville has a unique skyline, with what most people call the Batman building (it looks like his head!). Enjoy the views from the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge, formerly known as the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge, or from the shores of the Cumberland River.

5. Belle Meade Plantation

5025 Harding Pike, Nashville, TN 37205

This beautiful historic mansion is now a museum. You can take a tour or stroll the grounds (also a great photo spot).

6. Union Station Hotel

1001 Broadway, Nashville TN 37203

Stop by and see the late-Victorian Romanesque Revival architecture of the Union Station hotel, formerly a railroad terminal.

7. Country Music Hall of Fame

222 5th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203

Neither of us are huge fans of Country, but you can’t separate Nashville from Country Music. The Hall of Fame has one of the world’s largest collections and research center that walks you through the history of country music. Don’t forget to check out the Hatch Show Print too.

Also, right next door is the Music City Center, which is the main conference center in Nashville. It has a beautiful exterior that reminded Esther of a guitar and is worth stopping by for a few photos.

Taking another trip to Nashville? Here are a few more suggestions:

A special thanks to Logitech for making our weekend trip to Nashville possible. We had the chance to check out their new ZeroTouch app and mount which made the trip a lot smoother! It makes it incredibly easy to navigate, call, text, and listen to music without ever taking your hands off the wheel. When we travel, Esther is usually navigating so that I can focus on driving, but with the ZeroTouch, she can focus on catching all the Pokemon instead. haha (P.S. If you’re trying to catch Pokemon, Centennial Park and Broadway Street area were the best spots that we found so far.)

We primarily used the navigation feature with the Air Vent mount. As soon as we docked the phone on the magnetic mount, it activated the app. All I had to do was air five the phone and give it commands! You can check out their dashboard mount too.
