Storyville Road Trip: 48 Hours in Nashville

January 1, 2010 by Josh Harvey

The Storyville Road Trip has come to a thrilling end.  Natalie and I spent the 2 days walking up and down the streets of Nashville .  We explored the Vanderbilt University area, including Hillsboro Village , 21st Avenue and West End Avenue .  We also visited downtown Nashville , the 12th South area (including The Gulch ), Germantown and East Nashville .  The weather didn't exactly cooperate (it was rainy and overcast for most of our visit), but we still managed to see everything we wanted to see.

to see from our 48 hours in Nashville.

On this trip, Natalie and I visited Atlanta , Athens and Nashville .  Each of these cities would be a good fit for Storyville (and vice versa).  Hopefully, in the next few years to come, Storyville will be able to open up shops is each of these incredible places.

Nashville is a lot less country that you might expect.  It's a good-sized city, but it retains its small town charm (compared to Atlanta, it's a small town, but compared to Athens, it's a big city).  In a lot of ways, it reminds me of Austin.  Nashville loves its music, it has great universities, it has a thriving downtown and it's a very manageable city.  I can see why people love living in Nashville so much.

Special thanks to Nashvillians Julie Holmes and Cara Jackson for providing lots of good Nashville travel tips.

Having spent New Year's Eve in Nashville, Natalie and I are going to spend the first day of 2010 driving back to Baton Rouge .  We'd like to wish you and yours a Happy New Year and the very best of luck in 2010!
