You know we love a good getaway. We’ve given you a guide to Chattanooga, Charleston, Wine Country, and now – Nashville! In case you missed it, we recently launched Nashville Girl Gang, so our team is SO excited to be spending more time in Music City. Maddy traveled to Nashville for a Girl Gang Galentines event and stayed through the weekend for a girl’s trip. Read on to find out where we stayed, ate, drank, shopped and more!
Where to Stay
We’re BIG fans of Bode. This is far from your typical “hotel” experience, in the best way possible. Bode is an apartment-style hotel with 1-4 bedroom spaces including a full kitchen. Our 2-bedroom was perfect for our girl’s weekend, but the space is huge and so ideal for group travel – whether it’s a bachelorette party, couple’s getaway, family vacay, etc. Bode is community-focused and such a cool, unique boutique hotel. It felt like a relaxing oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Nashville. They have a cafe + market on-site called Porch – grab a bottle of wine, the toothpaste you forgot and your morning latte + breakfast sandwich all in one place. For happy hour, head over to Sidebar for some of the best cocktails you’ll ever have (seriously though).
