We may be biased, but we think Nashville is the best place to live. Roughly 703,953 residents call it home, after all. With a population like that, where do all of these Nashvillians eat, drink, play, and live?
We are setting out to answer that with NASHtoday’s Neighborhood Guides — an ongoing series that will take you on an exploration of the communities that make Nashville feel like home. We’ll dive into history, things to do and discover, places to park, where to live, and more to showcase some of the best qualities our unique neighborhoods have to offer.
So, what do we define as a “neighborhood”?
While we love suburbs like Franklin + Mt. Juliet, these guides will focus on small communities within our city (think: The Nations and Wedgewood-Houston). These small but mighty parts of Nashville typically feature restaurants, parks, living spaces, festivals, and events + span one to a handful of blocks.
How will we choose what neighborhoods to cover?
This is where you come in. We are asking you to rave about all of your favorite neighborhood communities in Music City — whether it’s one you call home, always stop by with out-of-town visitors, or daydream about moving to.
Are you intrigued by Germantown’s history? Do you love being able to walk from a 12 South coffee shop to a clothing store in a matter of minutes? Ever wonder why East Nashville’s Cleveland Park + McFerrin Park neighborhoods gained popularity so quickly? We want to hear all about it + share the inside scoop with our readers.
