See the second slideshow in the previous post here on the week I planned for my friend, Kate, to introduce her to southern hospitality and the Nashville spirit. Below is my guide for tourists, hosts, and locals on staycation. No doubt I’ll have more suggestions as I explore new places, and I’d love for you to share in the comments your favorite discoveries and hangouts, too. Enjoy!

Links to recommended Airbnbs mentioned above:
When I was living abroad for 3 years, my go-to for winter and summer breaks in Nashville was the Honey Bee Suite.
The owner, Carol, is a friend. Her place is so popular it was already booked when Kate visited (usually booked 8 months out). See why I love Carol’s home and the area here ).
Kate and I stayed in the “Charming Cottage in 12th/Belmont” but were told it was being sold and the link no longer works. 🙁
Lovely Little House on Lillian is aptly named. Loved the stay and host Andrea is very helpful.
Thompson Station was the bucolic respite I hoped it would be. Hosts Edy and Chris are great.
