A little glam, a little funk – Nashville, Tennessee offers something special for everyone. As the country music capital of the world, Nashville draws top-name entertainers and new artists hoping to catch their big break. However, business travelers passing through town should not deny themselves the chance to get a little two-step in, catch live music, and dive into the local foodie scene. Here’s how to spend your time in this musical, spirited little Southern city.
The holidays are upon us and, unfortunately (or not), so are gluttonous meals and desserts. Strict diets and cleanses have their place in January, but balance is still important leading up to the Holiday Season. We’re #thankful for the sweets at the Thanksgiving table, but we’re eating healthy while traveling through the Nashville International Airport. Here are some ideas:
Fresh-Squeezed Juice, Berry Field Bistro (Concourse C):
Choose one of their creations or blend your own healthy juice. Ingredients include Apple, Beet, Kale, Carrot, Spinach, Swiss Chard, Cucumber, Celery, and Ginger.
Egg White Omelet, Gibson Cafe (Concourse C):
A gluten free omelet with tomatoes, spinach, pepper jack cheese, and a baby green salad. Healthy without sacrificing flavor!
Yogurt & Granola, Gibson Cafe (Concourse C):
This antioxidant-loaded breakfast of Greek yogurt and seasonal berries will leave your appetite satisfied and your skin glowing (well, we can hope).
Oh Kale! Smoothie, Freshens Smoothies & Yogurt (A/B Food Court):
This smoothie has one and a half servings of greens and tastes like mango and pineapple. Substitute the mango sorbet for Greek yogurt and add protein powder for a more filling drink.
The Cobb, Berry Field Bistro (Concourse C):
A protein-packed salad to keep you full and energized through your flight and away from the baked goods. Leave off the bacon and blue cheese crumbles to keep it healthy.

One visit to Instagram will surely remind you: ‘Tis the season of pumpkin patches, flannel, and fall foliage. But it is also the season of cobwebs, gory creatures, and ominous sounds. If you’d rather spend your Saturday getting spooked than at the orchard, we have you covered. There are plenty of haunted sites and attractions in the Nashville area that will test your limits. Trust us, every location we mention below does its job. Gone are the days of spending $20 for your school’s 45-second haunted house, featuring the drama club’s fall production understudies.
Insider Tip: If you value your feet and overall safety, wear comfortable closed-toed shoes. And please do not bring the child you are babysitting to any of these sites. Missing out on social plans sucks, but so does explaining to your neighbors why their son is suddenly afraid of the dark.
