Visiting Nashville? Don’t miss these spots!
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

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

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.

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.
More Things to Do in Nashville

- Patterson House – speakeasy cocktail bar with the best Old Fashioned according to our friend who went to college in Nashville.
- Selfie in front of the I Believe in Nashville Mural (+ 18 Nashville Murals You Have to Visit)
- Music Row – you can tour studio B and drive by other famous recording studios. Other than the tours, there isn’t much to see from the street.
- 18 Essential Nashville Nashville Restaurants
- 10 Essential Nashville Coffee Shops
- Cheekwood Botanical Gardens
- Walk around Vanderbilt University (if you like walking college campuses)
- Radnor Lake
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 usually navigates 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.
