THE FULLEST Guide to Nashville
Although famed as one of the country’s music meccas, there’s more to Nashville than meets the eye. Its vibrant music scene continues but it’s also quickly becoming a foodie haven, wellness hub, and home to some gorgeous hikes. Laura Lemon of Nashville’s Lemon Laine gives us her top tips to check out!
Vandyke Bed and Beverage
This intimate hotel experience with large, lavish rooms captures the true spirit of Nashville. Fun, creative, and fearlessly local — it’s also planted in the heart of East Nashville, the home of the city’s artisan scene.
Urban Cowboy Boutique Hotel
If you love a natural wine with your boutique hotel, look no further than Urban Cowboy. The lobby has the cutest plant-filled side courtyard where you can easily relax for hours and the rooms themselves are very cozy with a Texas-flair.

The Joseph, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Nashville
The newest hotel to open in Nashville, The Joseph, marries artistic and cultural diversity with Southern hospitality. Along with its incredible art pieces and programs, the space hosts a beautiful spa, unforgettable views, and an exceptional Italian restaurant. If you’re looking for a more upscale luxury experience without all the tourists, this is it.
High ceilings, exposed brick walls, and an innovative Italian food and wine menu, this is Nashville dining at its best. The menu evolves as the seasons do and their sourdough bread is the must-try mainstay. Ask for the watercress butter.
Healthy salads, grain bowls, and pita wraps made in-house and from scratch. Don’t leave without trying their homemade chocolate chip cookies and soft serve ice cream too.
A modern beauty boutique with an ethos that revolves around natural, effective, and sustainable products. Don’t miss the one-of-a-kind Oil Bar experience. It’s like a wine bar meets skin consult in one — plus you leave with your own custom blend of organic facial oil.
Holly Williams, the granddaughter of Hank Williams, wanted to open a modern day general store that was a one stop shop for all your essentials. Think everything from French antiques to dog food, aprons to candles, and even sunglasses. They’ve honestly got it all! It’s impossible to leave without finding something unique to take back home.
A beautiful nail salon experience that includes an abundance of gorgeous green plants, white couches, and organic wooden touches. Also, plenty of natural nail color options.
Radnor Lake State Park is a 1,368-acre park and is protected as a Class II Natural Area. It is unique due to the abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities, environmental education programs, hiking opportunities, and its location in an urban area.
A historic music venue that’s credited with the beginning of bluegrass and has hosted every famous act you can think of. Highly recommend taking the official tour to go behind the curtains. Or even better? Catch a live show if time allows!
Holiday Bath House
This is a one of a kind Finnish-inspired bathhouse. If you’re visiting with a group, you can rent out the facility for you and your friends. Bonus — the catering is provided by Cafe Roze.
