2016 was great, but we’re definitely looking forward to a new year with new opportunity and new beginnings! With Nashville being one of the prime destinations in 2016, our little big town has been growing quite a bit. We have new shopping centers, new apartment complexes, and whole new businesses moving in at astonishing rates. We don’t have the same hustle and bustle of some of our contemporaries, but the city has a lot to offer, and if you’re just coming to town, or haven’t been here that long, there’s a lot going on you might not know about!
Some Good Music
Nashville TN isn’t all country music and honkytonks. We have a lot more in the way of arts and music and food than meets the eye. If you head toward the river on Broadway, as you go downtown, you’ll see all fancy lights, and crowds. You might veer down second avenue, and see more of the same. But if you’re looking for something just a little different, you should head up to Printer’s Alley… This little alley way is home to many little venues that host blues and jazz nightly, and are a great break away from what Nashville is known for, and it’s in the center of downtown.
In all of our neighborhoods there is music to be found, and if you’re looking anything off the beaten path, you absolutely have options! Pull up that Google Maps and take a look around. Sambuca in the Gulch – dinner and Jazz. Out off of Highway 100, south of Franklin, the old Chaffin’s Barn Dinner Theatre hosts lightly musical and theatrical events. There’s always more around the corner in this little city, all you need to do it look!
Some Great Food
Just because we’re in the south doesn’t mean we don’t have limited food options. In fact, if you head out Nolensville pike starting a little west of Thompson Lane, you’ll not only find Middle Eastern and Ethiopian cuisine, there are some of the better Asian and Mexican food markets in town! Whether you like to try new things in the kitchen, or just want a few new date night spots, it’s a great area to start your search.
Whatever you’re looking for, there is likely to be some version of it out there, and we suggest you go exploring! We are a growing community not just in the city, but in all the surrounding areas all over Middle Tennessee. Let 2017 be your year of exploration and new experiences. And as always, if there’s anyway we can help or if you’d like a personal recommendation, just give us a call!
