One of my favorite things about being based in San Francisco is the short flight proximity to so many different adventures! A 90-minute flight in any direction can transport you to the welcoming waters of sunny soCal, the earthy green forests of Oregon or the dry, deep deserts of Nevada, on any given weekend.
It’s been just over 2 months since I touched the ground in Nashville, but not a day has gone by that I haven’t thought of the slow mornings, welcoming accents and sweet details that line the charming streets of the American south.
There’s just something about the pace and lifestyle of the south that captures my heart a little more each visit.
To kick off the summer, Brian and I set out to escape the San Francisco fog and see what local Nashville, TN had in store.
Full of music, bars, BBQ and boutiques galore, here were my fave local finds from a week in town:
Crisp, clean, walkable streets, warm southern hospitality and an unexpectedly striking scene for foodies — these are just the first few things you’ll notice exploring around small town Chattanooga, TN, and likely before you’ve even left the downtown!
I seem to find myself more of a city girl: Miami, New York, San Francisco, Tokyo, but just before Christmas, I took a long awaited trip to visit one of my college roomies Sam in Knoxville, and couldn’t help but ask her to make the short drive with me to check out what all the buzz in small town Chattanooga was really about.
