We started day 1 off with a Segway tour of the city. I've always thought a Segway tour sounded like so much fun, and it definitely did not disappoint! If you are in a new city and feel like exploring, go the Segway route. So fun!
After the Segway tour, we stopped for a bite to eat at Acme Feed & Seed. I think it was everyone's favorite meal the whole time. I had a pulled pork sandwich, Danielle and Logan had the hot chicken, and Parker really branched out and ordered a cheeseburger. Stopping at a local ice cream parlor after wasn't so bad either. ;)
After a little R&R back at the hotel, we all ventured out for dinner at The Stillery. Parker and I split the Hot Chicken, which is apparently a Nashville must-eat. We had never heard of it, but it's basically fried chicken with a somewhat spicy sauce.
Friday, Parker and I woke up feeling all the food we had eaten (because vacation, obviously), so we decided to go on a little run around the city. The "little run" turned into 4 miles, which is pushing my running comfort zone these days. We had so much fun though! Running is much more enjoyable with a buddy, and that husband is the best motivator. He got a look when he announced we were going to run up the steps to the capitol, but it was well worth it!
We cleaned up and headed to a quick breakfast at Frothy Monkey. The great thing about Nashville food is that you really can't go wrong. We chose this place because it was quick, we were starving, and Danielle and Logan had already eaten. It ended up being delicious though!
After some much needed breakfast, we headed to the Country Music Hall of Fame. I love country music but admittedly didn't know a lot of the older artists. One thing I did know? Taylor Swift. And there was a Taylor Swift Education Center. Yes, please! My love for TSwift knows no limits, and even though this exhibit was smaller than most, it was of course my favorite.
That's part 1 of our Nashville vacation! Stay tuned for Part 2...
