  • We’ll cheers to this. Nashville ranked No. 5 on Southern Living’s South’s Best Cities list. The 615 was recognized for its music-centric venues like the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, and National Museum of African American Music — a draw for “locals and visitors alike.”
  • We’re putting together a hiking guide for the Nashville area with routes and trails to help you plan your next adventure. From quick and easy loops to day trips outside of town, let us know the local hikes that can’t be missed.
Plan Ahead

Check out Helen, Georgia, an alpine village that’s known for its nature scenes, having one of the best Oktoberfest celebrations in the country, and transforming into a winter wonderland.
  • Why go? Despite only having a population of ~545 people, this alpine village is one of Georgia’s most visited cities (with plenty of reason) with fun for the whole family.
  • Food: Hofer’s of Helen Bakery & Café is a must-try. This café’s menu + ambiance makes you feel like you’re in Germany. The Schwarzwälder Kirsch (Black Forest Torte) is to die for.
  • Outdoors: Take a ride on the wild side, or the Georgia Mountain Coaster, no matter your age this activity is a blast. There are also plenty of hiking trails, waterfalls, ziplining, tubing + kayaking (if it’s warm enough), and other outdoor activities to try out.
  • VRBO: Spectacular mountain chalet, short walk to downtown + activities ($270/night)
Bonus message from our partner: If you’re looking to book this trip, Going offers all the affordable flight hacks from your home airport. Sign up here.*
  • Looking for a new laptop that checks all the boxes without breaking the bank? Enter: the Acer Chromebook 311. This lightweight laptop is decked out with all the essential Google apps — like Google Chrome and Google Calendar — it’s quiet, and it has up to 10 hours of battery life.*
  • What we’re buying for our cars: Dash cams. The REDTIGER Dual Dash Camera captures both the front and rear of your car and can be a lifesaver when it comes to contesting traffic violations and recording evidence of collisions. Plus, it connects to your mobile device. 🚦*
  • Summer travel is just around the corner. On our radar: this mid-century modern stay in Martha’s Vineyard. For something a little more tropical, our pick is this seaside cottage in St. John. If international travel is calling your name, this charming home along the French Riviera is for you.*
