When my husband and I moved to Nashville in the 90’s, downtown was a full on, old school country music scene. From the honky-tonks, Printer’s Alley and record label headquarters, it really was country. Today, you won't see the long gone Hard Rock Cafe and Fuddruckers of the 90's, you'll see high rises and construction sites and traffic!  To say Music City has changed in an understatement. Nashville has grown, and continues to grow at such an alarming pace that even locals like us need help navigating our day trips into Nashville, so today I’m sharing a new to me guide called Do615, this website is a fun way to make the most of a Nashville trip whether you have a day or a week.

Welcome to Nashville- The “It” City:

Nashville has it all the local news headline proclaims; and honestly, it’s not wrong. We are a city full of music, (not just country), sports (waves Nashville Preds gear at you), walkable neighborhoods, great food, farmers markets and parks (The Parthenon at Centennial is a must see!), and is a fantastic place to raise a family. That’s why we moved here years ago. The Nashville that welcomes visitors and transplants now looks nothing like the Nashville that welcomed us decades ago, but that's okay, now you can be in the know just like a local.

Nashville Record Store Day

Sounds pretty cool, right? Not only have I found cool events my husband and I want to attend like the Record Store Day on April 13th, but I also discovered a block party near my daughter’s college campus this weekend. She was pretty happy to hear about it. I think I earned some cool Mom points!
