There’s nothing like a girls getaway weekend in the summer to leave you feeling rejuvenated! My friend and I road tripped to the music city to spend the night and see as much of Nashville as possible! We checked into the historic Hermitage Hotel Saturday morning.
We we’re greeted with plush robes and a beautiful lobby. The five star hotel is listed in Forbe’s 2016 Travel Guide and did not disappoint! The Hermitage has a cute boutique right outside the lobby. It’s named after Andrew Jackson’s wife, Rachel!
Stop in and look around, but don’t leave without sneaking a peak at the men’s bathroom. Located in the basement, the restroom is restored to it’s 1930s state with green and black lined walls and a shoe cleaning station. When my friend and I found out about this, of course we had to take a look! We made a friend outside the bathroom who checked to see if the coast was clear so we could step inside!
After getting settled in our room, we hit Broadway! This cowboy’s paradise is the best place to listen live music and barhop from rooftop to rooftop. Our all day Broadway adventure turned into a late night! We ended up at honky tonk with an awesome view of the AT&T building. On our way out we grabbed pizza and went back to the hotel.
Sunday was all about The Gulch, a trendy part of Nashville right outside of downtown. We brunched at The Mockingbird, where I got a delicious dish of breakfast tachos! Yes, tachos. Think nachos with tater tots! Afterwards we went to explore all of the streets (and Instagram murals) this part of the city had to offer!
Before we left, we had one more item on our bucket list! Donuts from Five Daughter’s Bakery! We ordered a vanilla bean and a birthday cake, both equally delicious!
While our time in Nashville was short, we had so much fun and visited so many different places. I highly recommend taking a road trip yourself to the country music capital.
