Sometimes, planning a weekend away with friends can be daunting.... As a Nashville Native (well close anyway) I get asked all the time where I would go for a Friday brunch or what I would do for a Saturday daytime activity. With plenty of restaurants, and a lot of fun activities in the city, the possibilities are endless when it comes to filling up a few days in Nashville!

To make these suggestions easier for you to navigate, I went ahead and put together my ideal Nashville weekend as a guideline on what to see and do in Music City!
