Downtown Nashville is one of those towns that might remind you of Mayberry. Lots of family owned shops and restaurants, people walking around with their kids and/or dogs, quiet except for the occasional sound of a church bell or the town trolley rolling by. I highly recommend stopping by the Nashville House Dining Room for the best fried chicken and biscuits with apple butter. And save room for dessert at Miller's Ice Cream where both the ice cream and the waffle cones are home made!
To save some money we packed a picnic lunch and ate at a picnic table inside the park overlooking the hills. As Indiana residents it only costs $5 per vehicle to enter the park, and hang on to your receipt if you decide to leave and want to come back later the same day.
What I'm wearing: dress c/o eShakti and reviewed here, Crocs Adrina Flats (purchased in 2012), jewelry is either from Forever 21 or Jewel Mint
We did go back into town after lunch and got ice cream!
