Travel Guide: Nashville, Tennessee

What to see (and taste!) in this rockin’ state capital.

By Clover Health

Known as “Music City,” Nashville is a home for musicians and music lovers alike. It’s also home 

to Clover Health’s headquarters and Clover’s Senior Manager of Content and Social Media, Lindsay Roseman! With so much to feast your eyes, ears, and taste buds on, here are a few of Lindsay’s must-visits. 

Where to Eat in Nashville

Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack

This 80-year-old mainstay is the birthplace of the unofficial delicacy of Nashville. But if you haven’t tried it before, start with mild, which still brings some heat. Hot is not for first-timers! 

The Pancake Pantry 

Boasting 23 pancake varieties, plus sandwiches and egg dishes, this Hillsboro Village café is a popular spot—often with a line out the door. (It moves fast!) 

Bongo Java

Pop into this charming coffee shop for a beverage or quick lunch. It’s the oldest coffeehouse in Nashville, a local favorite, and ideal for people-watching.  

Things to See in Nashville

The Ryman 

From Elvis to Dolly Parton, Bruce Springsteen to Peter Frampton—countless legendary performers have graced the stage of this 130-year-old music venue. Take in a show or take a tour to learn about its remarkable history. 

Grand Ole Opry House

You can’t talk about Nashville without mentioning the “show that made country music famous”—the Grand Ole Opry. Though it’s a little outside of town, the Opry House is a visitor favorite for a reason. In addition to several live shows each week, backstage tours are a great way to learn the history of this iconic venue.  

Things to Do in Nashville

Centennial Park

This 132-acre park features the iconic Parthenon, trails, Lake Watauga, sunken gardens, band shell, sportsplex, and arts centers. On weekends, you’ll find a variety of food trucks from local eateries. 

12 South Neighborhood

This unique area is perfect for a summer stroll. Explore eateries and shops featuring vintage and locally crafted wares—and don’t forget to snap a photo in front of the “I Believe in Nashville” mural.
