[Blog by Lilli, Picture comments by Jason]

Jason is a teacher, so our best times to travel are during long weekends. We looked up affordable flights for President’s Day, and we got tickets for $135 (total) to fly to Nashville. Neither of us have ever been, so why not?
We enjoyed staying at the Capitol Hotel, but next time we want to try the Union Station Hotel, right by Broadway. Nashville is a very pleasant city. They keep it very clean, the people are super nice, and you feel safe walking around, even late at night. 
The only complaint would be that there are a lot of cigarette smokers outside. 

The Music:
Walking down 2nd Ave and Broadway, there are a bunch of bars with music playing ALL the time. It is pretty much like walking in a mall. You walk down the street, listen to the music playing, decide if you like it, and go in. There usually is no cover, but you should plan to bring cash to tip the bands. They are amazing and deserve to be paid for getting to listen to their talent!
Music Locations we went in and enjoyed: Robert's Western World, Legends Corner, Nudie’s Honky Tonk and Cerveza Jack’s. 
There are other venues in the area that have bigger names, and do charge a cover. Be cautious with that, because many sell out. We tried to go to the Station Inn (known for it’s Bluegrass) on Saturday night, but when we got there, there was a sign that it was sold out. 
We were able to get in the next day for the Sunday Bluegrass Jam and it was great! 

Food: 
We really enjoyed the food here. Every place we went had a great atmosphere, friendly wait staff, and good food. There is a lot of farm to table, so we enjoyed that as well. Many places do book up, so check for reservations before you go. 
Here are places we ate and enjoyed: 5th & Taylor, Frothy Monkey, and Silo
We went to Prima for brunch. It had great reviews for the food, but the brunch was just ok. Maybe the dinner is better and what they are known for?
Yet, when we were walking to Prima, we saw a huge line for this place called Biscuit Love. Since we didn’t each much at Prima, we felt that we had to check out a place that had such a large line. And yes, Biscuit Love is a must for any Nashville experience. 

We really enjoyed our weekend in Nashville, and highly recommend a visit!
