City Shopping Guide: Nashville

All you need to know about local style, shopping and the buzz-worthy scene found in Music City!

City Shopping Guide: Nashville

TripAdvisor recently put out its list for the Top 15 US destinations on the rise. Since I love to travel and act like a local, I thought this was the perfect opportunity for a faux road trip all over the map!

Here at Garmental, we focus on the hyper-local elements of style and shopping, so what better way to get you acquainted with these stellar cities than to supply you with style tips, shopping stops and scene essentials from local tastemakers and celebrities in the know! First stop, Nashville!

There is more to Nashville than country music and crispy fried food. This Southern city is making its mark as a rising cosmopolitan town with a growing restaurant community, trendsetting designers and boutiques and young voices turning country music mainstream. No doubt this humble town has a Main Street attitude coupled with Southern charm, which is why it made my list as the #1 place I want to live (if I ever leave the city!)
