Answered: Where is your go-to sunset watching spot in Nashville?

Not to brag on our city, but we do have some of the most unreal sunsets.

Would you rather see a downtown Nashville sunrise or sunset?

We recently shared news of Sunset on Belcourt, an outdoor dining spot coming to Hillsboro Village, and it got us thinking. Where are your go-to spots to watch the sun set, or even the sun rise?

Whether you’re new to town or have been a Nashvillian your whole life, we want any and every suggestion (we promise we will keep your secrets... only sharing with our thousands of dedicated readers).

We’ll go first. Editor Dylan loves watching the sun go down over the skyline from the top of Fort Negley Park.

Your turn. Let us know what places to check out to be featured in an upcoming newsletter with this survey.

We sure do love this Music City glow. | Submitted by reader Deborah Varallo


Earlier this week, we asked you to share your go-to spots to see a sunset or sunrise in Music City.

“One of my favorite places to watch the sunrise is standing on the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge and facing downtown Nashville. The sun is rising on my backside, but the city becomes a beautiful vision as the rising sun provides a striking photo.” — Deborah V.

“I work in the hotel industry, so I’ll always take my break around sunset time. I’ll go to the top of any hotel I’m at and watch it from there.” — Krystal T.

“First Horizon Park in the summertime. Baseball with a side of sunset.” — James E.

Here are a few more beloved spots you recommended:

  • Love Circle, 3300 Love Cir. | It’s a prime place to admire fall foliage, too.
  • Arrington Vineyards, 6211 Patton Rd., Arrington | Find a picnic table near the winery’s barn to watch the sun go down — with or without a wine flight.
  • Long Hunter State Park, 2910 Hobson Pk. | Watch from the fishing pier at Couchville Lake or find a spot along the banks of Percy Priest.
