On the itinerary: Getting a taste of Nashville brunch, then venturing into the 12South neighborhood.
Nashville’s Famous Brunch
You’ll visit Nashville for one reason, but you’ll probably wind up with a change of plans due to all the food there is to try. And in Nashville, brunch reigns supreme.
Savory staff pick: Liberty Common (pictured) for their "Nashville Hot" Chicken and Waffles.
Sweet staff pick: Geist for their famous cinnamon roll with caramel, whipped cream and candied pecans.
Stroll Around 12South
Thanks to a retail boom, there’s something here for even the pickiest shopper. Peruse stores you’ve probably heard of and definitely never heard of, including a vintage shop, small boutiques and larger retailers.
Staff member pick: Search the full list of stores, or start with Imogene + Willie, a store built out of a former gas station that has since become a local icon.
Perfect for brunch or walking around in the Nashville heat, the fruity floral has notes of Blood Orange, Mandarin and Sheer Jasmine.
