Nashville, TN - The Home of Country Music. Some of you may not know but I’m originally a Southern Girl (Jacksonville, FL), so Country Music and Southern Charm will always hold a special place in my heart. So, it wasn’t even a question of if I was going to stop in Nashville on my road trip, just when. Read on below for how I did some of the Best Instagram Spots in Nashville in 24 Hrs.
First Stop: Draper James - 2608 12th Ave S | Nashville, TN 37204
Draper James opens at 10AM and, you should get there right when it opens! Just in case you didn’t know, Draper James is owned by America’s Sweetheart Reese Witherspoon. Everything in this store just exudes SOUTHERN CHARM. When you walk in, they even ask you if you want Sweet Tea!! Isn’t that the ABSOLUTE CUTEST?! And then everything in the store is just ADORABLE. I wanted to buy EVERYTHING!! From Tote Bags to Dresses to the CUTEST Sandals, you’ll be sure to find something that fits your personality.
After you’re finished shopping, make sure you head to the side of their building where you’ll find these Instagrammable spots.
Note: The Rolling Stone Tongue was there for a special exhibit, but their famous blue and white wall is always available for photos.
When your done with these spots, just take a left out of Draper James and head towards Dallas Ave where you’ll take a right to find this Peace Nashville mural by Eastside Murals. When you go, no promises it’ll be the same mural but, you’ll definitely find something Instagram worthy.
After you finish exploring everything 12th Ave has for you to see, head on over to your 2nd Stop in Nashville.
Second Stop: 269 11th Ave South | Nashville, TN 37203 (The Gulch)
The address above will lead you to the parking garage where on the side wall you’ll find Kelsey Montague’s #WhatLiftsYou Wings AND how ADORABLE are those little wings?!
You should check out the Gulch after you get your photos, there are a lot of cute shops, good food, and fun bars in the area! Now onto the next stop.
Third Stop: Barista Parlor - 519 Gallatin Ave B | Nashville, TN 37206
After the first two stops, you’ll be ready for coffee, and Barista Parlor has some of the best you’ve ever tasted. So make sure you grab something to go, snap a quick picture and then get a bite to eat at The Gambling Stick right next door. Hopefully they’re still there when you make it out to Nashville because this Southern BBQ was DELICIOUS!!
After you’re done re-fueling, make your way past the Barista Parlor and look for the pink and white beauty store on the left hand side.
Note: When you walk out of the coffee shop you’ll want to take a left and head to that Beauty Supply Store. DON’T. That’s not THE Beauty Supply Store (Unless you actually want to get some Beauty Supplies, it was nice inside. LOL.).
So, make sure you take a right out of the Barista Parlor and look to the left for this Pretty in Pink (And White) Building. AND when you’re finished taking photos there, make sure to go to the building right next door and take a photo at the East Nashville sign located on the side of the building.
You’re almost DONE. It wouldn’t be a trip to Nashville without taking a trip to the Grand Ole Opry.
Fourth (And Final) Stop: Grand Ole Opry - 2804 Opryland Dr | Nashville TN 37214
Before taking a picture in front of the iconic guitars, make sure to explore the shopping center located right next door. Because when in Nashville, you have to get some boots! AND check out Taylor Swift's Wax figure at Madame Tussauds. AND get some delicious cookie dough from Sam T. Spoonlickers.
Hopefully this helps you get THE BEST Instagram Worthy Photos when you’re in Nashville AND catch a little glimpse of the city. I can’t WAIT to go back to Nashville and do even more exploring., 24 Hrs in this city just isn’t enough!
