In honor of 615 Day here in Nashville, and since it’s Friday (shout to Annie for the inspiration behind what is becoming a favorite thing to write too), we’re doing a Nashville Top Five Places. In case you aren’t aware of 615 Day, it’s celebrating the day of Nashville since 615 is our area code.It used to be my area code when I lived in East Tennessee and in Knoxville for a while, so it seems only fair that I’d eventually come back around to living in the area code once more.
In a year (next week) of living in Nashville, I have developed some favorite places. So enjoy, and if you want to add to the list, feel free!
- Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings. Seriously amazing stuff from everywhere, especially in the fall. I could just sit among the farmers and vendors for hours.
- Nashville Sunday Nights at Third and Lindsley. I have only been once but listen quite frequently. Local musicians play on Sunday evenings at Third and Lindsley which Lightning 100 broadcasts. It’s a really cool experience. I got to see Gabe Dixon, which was such a treat.
- Taco Mamacita. The atmosphere, the location, the service staff, and the food all combine to make my favorite eatery in Nashville a biweekly treat. I almost signed on an apartment located across the street but reconsidered just how obese I would get if I was within 200 yards of Taco Mamacita.
- Centennial Park. I love going out there in early fall. It’s just nice to be out there on the grass or walking around the park.
- Belmont University. Granted I do work here, but this is probably one of the most beautifully landscaped places I have ever seen. I dare you to not agree with me on that. Check out the rose garden and the beautiful fountains all across campus.
What’s a favorite place for you?
