Get a true glimpse of the artistic city of Nashville with these Instagram shots that showcase the depth of its beauty.

The city of Nashville comes to life downtown, an area that several local hot spots call home. From the infamous Ryman Auditorium and the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum to the many country music venues and shops along Broadway, downtown attracts tourists and native Nashvillians with its numerous offerings.





If you travel west of downtown, you’ll reach the West End area, which is where you’ll find Centennial Park, the site of the Nashville Parthenon. Once you head south of there, you’ll come across the Pancake Pantry and the rest of Hillsboro Village. With independent boutiques, restaurants, vibrant wall murals and beauty salons, the village is a magnet for college students who attend nearby Vanderbilt and Belmont universities.




Another neighborhood that caters to young, free-spirited individuals is 12 South. The growing area has stores, restaurants, and Sevier Park, a family-friendly place to play. Check out the fun murals on the buildings up and down the streets for a taste of the artistic talent in Nashville. You might even come across some of the city’s most stylish Southern belles, who dress up in large derby hats and pretty dresses for the annual Iroquois Steeplechase.



All across Nashville are symbols of why the city is nicknamed “Music City.” Outside of many buildings, especially downtown and on Music Row, are guitar statues and other music-related displays. Even some hotels and venues pull inspiration from the Nashville music scene to design their buildings, inside and out.




Between the many parks and green spaces that Nashville has, there’s never a bad view of the city. Day or night, it doesn’t matter. The greenery and the rich colors of nature light up and reflect off the many buildings and landmarks to create a photographic masterpiece.
