In March this year I took a trip with my family to Nashville Tennessee. It was my very first time in a Southern state. We spent 8 days in Nashville. It was a great time breathing different air, exploring a new city and trying different foods!

Hey friends! My people! If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know I used to write on here a lot. It’s been a while since I wrote a post that isn’t a recipe so I’m excited to be able to do that again!

We packed our bags and left SoCal for Nashville Tennessee in the spring of this year. The girls were so excited! Who am I kidding? I was excited!

Food In Nashville

I have always wanted to go to a Southern state. I have so looked forward to trying the foods there! So my dreams came true when I tried Nashville Hot Chicken, food from popular restaurants like Biscuit Love and Five Daughters Bakery.

I mostly ordered the food online because these restaurants had long lines of people waiting to get in! I was not going to get on those lines with 5 kids including a baby. Thank God for online ordering!

I particularly loved the grits from Biscuit Love and the strawberry doughnuts from Five Daughters Bakery.

Also, we loved visiting Nashville farmer’s market! I was surprised to find a grocery store carrying African food at the market. I bought some red snapper fish, plantains and other ingredients then I went back to our hotel room and made some delicious whole pan fried fish with fried plantains and avocado salsa!

By the way, one of my highlights on the trip was the fact that our hotel room had a well-equipped kitchenette! It was fun to cook in it!

Watch me cooking in my hotel room kitchen in the video below!

I also made some fried chicken wings in our tiny hotel kitchen. And they were to die for! No photographic evidence. What was I thinking??

Our hotel offered complimentary breakfast which was so good! Probably the best hotel breakfast we’ve had. There were waffles, toast, bagels, omelettes, oatmeal, sausages and more. You can see the hotel breakfast in the video at the end of this post!

Some Highlights Of Our Trip

One highlight of our trip was taking a tour of the city in a tour bus. We entered a tour bus from a company called Old Town Trolleys. Our driver was hilarious in the way he presented the city to us!

The people in Nashville were so friendly! And the hotel staff felt like family. They had time to hold little conversations as we walked past them. It felt more relaxed.

Also, Broadway in Nashville is the happiest street I have ever seen. There are lots of bands playing in bars, people vibing to the music, people riding pass in party buses dancing and screaming. Some buses had DJs on board! They don’t call Nashville Music City for nothing!

Walking along the the Music Walk of Fame right next to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum was so amazing! We were going to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum when we tried to there was a long queue to get in so we skipped it.

We also visited the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum (not to be confused with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum). It was fun to play with the instruments there and make some music.

  1. I just returned Tuesday from Nashville. We started in pigeon forge Gatlinburg and ended up in Nashville. We stayed at the Westin on travel euro. We got a really good price. There was a rooftop pool. We did view the Grand Ole Opry We did view country music hall museum. A great place to eat is the assembly food Hall by Hattie B’s. I would say the best breakfast we had in Tennessee was at the Sun diner on the street. Where Johnny Cash is museum is. Kid Rock’s bar is at the corner off of Broadway. Sun records started the Sun diner. Jason Aldean is the owner of the Sun diner now. Do you want authentic Southern food? Southern hospitality. Southern treatment this is a place to go back in time. Affordable. Excellent from beginning to end. We enjoyed Blake Shelton’s old red. We went to biscuit Love and milk and honey they were great but the Sun diner is top. Your family is so sweet and so precious. You get to pigeon forge. You got to go to Dollywood and stay at Dolly’s resort too. The kids would love the water park both sides of the park. And at her resort they would love the swimming pool there. And I’ll tell you the best food we had in Nashville was at Dollywood’s resort food they put out is unbelievable. Fried chicken the real deal spare ribs the real deal street corn. The real deal sweet potatoes collard greens. It just goes on and on The best food ever which we were spoiled after we left there. It was our first time in Nashville as well in pigeon forge. If you go at night to the Titanic exhibit that is wonderful and then to go to Ridley’s Sea aquarium. That was amazing and you can actually get the penguin experience. They take you to room and you can pet a real penguin. Driving up in the mountains was a great experience as well. There’s a huge white cross at the top of the mountain. Daughters are beautiful. You have a lovely looking family.

    1. Hi Lynn, a rooftop pool sounds so fun! Okay, now I have to try Sun Diner!
      These are great suggestions, Lynn!
      I’ll revisit this comment when next we go to Nashville.
      Thank you!

  2. I’m so happy to see that you ventured South. Having lived in SoCal for three years, I know how difficult that can be. Next time you come this way I would love to introduce you to some great black owned businesses as well as a trip to the African American Music Museum. You will not be disappointed!

    1. Hi Tarria, I would love that! We will definitely visit the African American Music Museum when next we visit!
      Thanks for stopping by!

      1. Also we have black own shuttles that can escort you and your family to different black businesses.
