Getting Around The Nations

Around The Nations

Residents of The Nations take advantage of their open spaces. It's not uncommon to see locals throwing a football, working in their gardens, cleaning their car, jogging, urban hiking, or otherwise enjoying the outdoors. The Nations has the benefit of being close to Downtown Nashville, but just far enough away to retain its more laid back feel. The Nations is a great option for those who need more space and are willing to drive a little farther for work, shows, and sports.

Coco's Italian Market is a local favorite, where you can eat traditional Italian cuisine and shop for Italian meal prep staples in the shop. They also have a new event center, where they host concerts, mystery theater, and more. Hattie B's frequently has a line out the door, where locals wait to enjoy some Nashville hot chicken. It's an everyday favorite. You might miss the Dragon Garden if you blink, but they have some of the tastiest Chinese food in town.

The Nations is filled with eclectic mom and pop shops that have been there for generations. Check out Cool Stuff Weird Things on Charlotte Avenue, where you'll find a mix of strange collectibles, art, vintage clothing, and re-purposed furniture. Places like this are interspersed with lifestyle essentials like boutique fitness centers, local restaurants, and everyday conveniences. Thistle Farms is a Nashville-based, nationally recognized organization that serves up free trade coffee and gourmet delights at the Thistle Stop Cafe and hosts live music on the weekends.

On a Friday night in The Nations, you might start with dinner at M.L. Rose where you can enjoy hot wings, craft burgers, and loaded waffle fries. They're open late, so you might decide to stick around to enjoy draft beer until closing time. If you’re looking for something more laid back, The Nations is an amazing place to simply enjoy an urban hike with the family where you'll see industrial buildings, vintage shops, and trendy hotspots. In The Nations, the historic and modern merge seamlessly.

You may spend your Sundays walking down Charlotte Pike, popping in and out of shops. Or head just down the street to Nashville West Shopping Center. Enjoy lunch while supporting a great cause at the Thistle Stop. Locals also enjoy leisurely strolls around Richland Creek and England Park or joining a pick-up game in West Park.

Great Up and Coming Neighborhood with Good Food!

Jen B
The Nations neighborhood seems to be growing daily, and with that growth it has definitely become a much nicer place to live! There are so many new and delicious food spots around, along with a great brewery. A lot of young families have moved to the area over the past few years, which has made the area very family friendly!
