Where to Live

Because the district covers such a huge area, there are a very large number of housing options available, ranging from posh townhouses to large apartment complexes and affordable homes. East Nashville also one of the more ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the city. You can find both tightly knit communities and apartments that offer peace and quiet at the end of a long day. Generally speaking, the farther west you go, the higher the prices are. Also, expect to pay a fair amount if you want a view of the Cumberland River or Shelby Bottoms. For wallet-friendly housing, look at Inglewood to the northern edge of the district.

Where to Eat

East Nashville has a great array of ethnic restaurants. Here, you'll be able to sample everything from authentic Mexican to Italian, Greek, and Japanese/Thai fusion. If you want to walk on the spicy side of life, check out the numerous BBQ and hot fried chicken diners. There are also bakeries, beer gardens, and juice bars. Neighborhood pubs bring in large crowds attracted by reasonably priced drinks and the laid-back atmospheres.

What You'll See

Your experience will depend on where you are in East Nashville. The northern end is more residential and quiet. The west has lots of foot traffic and the occasional excitement of thousands of rowdy sports fans who’ve descend on Nissan Stadium for events. The southeast, along the bend of the Cumberland River, is dominated by the Shelby Bottoms park and and the Shelby Golf Course. Here, you'll find everyone enjoying these vast green spaces in the heart of the city.

Friday Night Fun

East Nashville has a passion for sports. You can kick back at local sports bars, enjoying your favorite teams on TV. If you want to see them in person, look no further than Nissan Stadium. This is located on the southwest corner along Titans Way and offers a variety of sporting events year-round. If you're looking for a low-key evening, head to nearby Opry Mills and catch a film at the IMAX theater.

The Perfect Sunday

Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park is an institution in East Nashville. It covers a staggering 960 acres and its numerous forests, fields, and walking or biking trails offer views of the river. This can make a wonderful, welcome change from city life. If you need to escape the heat and humidity, visit the Five Points Retail District. Here you can stroll the shady tree-lined streets taking in the traditional Victorian architecture. You may be drawn to one of the vintage and antique stores or drop by an art gallery and get refreshments at a charming cafe.
