1st Trip to Music City --- HUGE SUCCESS!!!
When I began planning our trip to Nashville over a year ago, I was clueless about most everything - where to stay, what to do, etc. I had already booked a hotel downtown, but one of my co-workers suggested that I look into VRBO. I was VERY skeptical about using this means of finding & booking a place to stay; however, from the second I saw the listing & made contact with Amy, I was SOLD! I cancelled the hotel & booked, at a MUCH CHEAPER price, I might add, this gorgeous condo!
This was a 60th birthday gift for my Mom, so I wanted it to be super-special! In planning the trip, I determined very early on that there was SO MUCH to do in Nashville. I had no idea where to begin, so I reached out to Amy for some help. She went above & beyond in helping me with tips, suggestions, recommendations, etc. She was flexible & accommodating.
The condo is in a perfect location - tucked away in a beautiful historic neighborhood with cute shops & wonderful restaurants, yet only a short walk over the Shelby Street pedestrian bridge to the heart of downtown. If you're planning to take in a Titans game, that's within walking distance, too. It was beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We had no problems with parking (there is on-street parking & parking off of an alley behind the condo). The only problem we had was with the TV in the living room. Amy was SUPER-accommodating in getting the issue (which ended up being a bad HDMI cable) resolved. Her husband came over & quickly fixed the problem.
Some of our "must visits" from our trip - the Ryman Auditorium, Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum (plan on a full day to take in this site), RCA Studio B and Tootsie's Orchid Lounge. The Hop On/Hop Off Tour is money well spent - $20 per person, good for 24 hours, and includes 7 stops (including the Ryman Auditorium, Antique Archaeology (be sure to check out The Bang Candy Company next door which is famous for their AMAZING homemade marshmallows), Bicentennial Park, Centennial Park/The Parthenon, Country Music Hall of Fame).
Sky Blue Cafe (really good breakfast/coffee), about 2 blocks away on Fatherland Street. PizzeReal (awesome pizza), a short drive from the condo on N. 11th Street. The Pancake Pantry, in the Vanderbilt University area, is a little pricey, but still wonderful! Demos Steak & Spaghetti House (on Commerce Street downtown) was one of our favorite meals. The baked chicken soup is a MUST!!
Enjoy your stay!
