On the Road


Music City, USA

Nashville skyline

Nashville is a city fueled by music, steered by history, and revved up with a dynamic food and drink scene. This city has much to offer you, from celebrating your way down Broadway to toe-tapping at Robert's Western World. This culturally dense town does not lack in the food department, so listen up to where you need to visit. If you are looking for some classic southern comfort food, the opportunities are endless: there is Arnold’s Country Kitchen, Margot Cafe and Bar, and Hattie B’s Hot Chicken. Looking for something a little more upscale? You can always try The Continental for high-class service and ambiance, Bourbon Steak for sky-high steakhouse fare, or Henrietta Red for perfectly prepared seafood and oysters. Make sure to stop by Goo Goo Chocolate Co for the best mound of caramel, marshmallow nougat, fresh roasted peanuts, and real milk chocolate you have ever eaten. This city will definitely be worth the trip.
