If the sweet smell of chicken and waffles isn’t enough to make you pack up your things and head down south, then surely a visit to the music capital of the USA is. If you’re visiting Nashville and aren’t planning on eating your way through the city, then you are doing yourself a major injustice.
Nashville is not only known for its popular tunes and the Parthenon, but also for its comfort food. It’s the perfect destination for any foodie.
The first tour, called East Nashville Food Tour, takes you on a scenic tour two miles across the river from downtown. The 1.5-mile walk includes tastings at 5-6 different chef owned restaurants and eateries.
With the destinations always rotating, you don’t have to feel guilty if you take the tour again… and maybe again. The 3-hour tour will also allow you to stroll past Victorian homes and bungalows, and you’ll even learn about the music studio where Johnny Cash and Neil Young made records.
The second tour is called the Midtown/Vanderbilt Food Tour. The hustle bustle area of Midtown is situated between downtown and Vanderbilt University. Once a business district, this constantly changing neighborhood has both a small-town and big-town feel.
Get a taste of old fashioned favorites, while also getting the chance to discover the newest flavors of the city. Enjoy a gourmet cupcake from Gigi’s Cupcakes or a steak from Union Common. Every stop or so, you’ll get to take in Nashville’s “Rock Block” and discover the history of Vanderbilt University.
