Hiya Boss Babes! Happy Friday & happy March.
It's Sarah bringing you an all-new Friday Favorites. Anyone else a little bit in denial that we're already in March? The start of a new month is always a reminder for me to check in with my goals & do a small evaluation of what's going on in & around my life. Whether it's work-related or not, I enjoy using the start of a new month as a guide to staying on track. What about you?
Today's Favorite is SO much fun & completely focused on what to do, eat, & see in Nashville.
I traveled to the music city last weekend from Friday night to Sunday night, a short but very sweet trip with two of my close girlfriends. Nashville has been a travel hotspot for a while & after hearing amazing reviews, I knew I had to check it out myself.
Here's what I saw, where I ate & what I recommend you MUST do as a first time Nashville visitor.
What I Saw - There are lots to see & do in this awesome city, but one of my favorite things was walking down Music Row & seeing all the country music recording studios. Even though no one was around, there was still an incredible sense of history & pride you could feel by just being there in that moment.
What I Ate - Casual small talk with your Uber driver will GET YOU PLACES. #protip Ours hooked it up & drove us over to Biscuit Love & although the line was long, we were able to get in pretty quickly. This place was worth that wait. Biscuit Love is a local brunch joint serving southern style biscuit classics. The name speaks for itself. Talk about an indulgent breakfast, to say the least.
My number one recommendation on the menu - the "Bonuts" which is cross between a donut & a biscuit served with lemon mascarpone cream & blueberries. Probably one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten.
Another foodie favorite was dinner at Butcher & Bee. We made reservations at this restaurant ahead of time, which turned out great because we had almost no wait at all. This farm to table gem was the perfect spot to unwind after a hectic day of adventuring. Hidden in East Nashville, it was only a quick 7 minute Uber from our Airbnb. The menu is ever changing & I recommend ordering a bunch of items & sharing plates with your group. My absolute must-have was the Fire Roasted Carrots served with coconut, peanuts & samba onions-- it was beyond delicious.
What I Recommend You Must Do - Music, Music Music! Being able to walk around the city at any time of day/night & listen to live music was my favorite part of the whole trip! We stayed right off of Broadway Street which is the center of downtown & a super convenient location in a private Airbnb room at the Nashville Downtown Hostel. All the hot spots in this area were super accessible & we were able to walk everywhere. My favorite spots for listening to live music & sipping on a drink were Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row & Florida Georgie Line House, however, there was no shortage of action-packed spots.
I think it's safe to say I'll be back to Nashville sooner rather than later.
Have any of you Boss Babes ever visited Nashville? If so what was your favorite thing about this city? Also, I would love to hear where you recommend I travel next. I have an ever growing list, so why not keep adding to it. I hope you enjoyed this post, thanks for reading & have a great weekend.
Catch ya next week! Stay boss.
