Louisville, Nashville, and Chattanooga

Read more about the trip at the first post Hitting the road #IntoTheNeighborwoods.

1,285 Miles: Louisville, KY

Did you know that the carving of the first Louisville Slugger bat was over 120 years ago?

With only a few days to enjoy Louisville, we started off the trip with a baseball game at the Louisville Slugger Field, enjoyed some delicious pizza at Garage Bar, devoured the most delicious chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever had from Please and Thank You, and finished the trip off with amazing sunset views at Four Bridge Park.

1,437 Miles: Nashville, TN

Did you know that the AT&T Tower is the largest building in Tennessee? Plus, since it’s the highest points resemble bat ears, it’s been nicknamed “Batman building.”

After spending a week exploring Nashville, I soon found out that not only is there some of the best live country music, there’s also beautiful parks and an awesome food culture. We spent an afternoon walking through the gorgeous Shelby Bottoms Greenway, ate delicious tacos (more then once!) at Mas Tacos and were lucky enough to stop by a Creative Mornings talk before we hit the road again.

1,570 Miles: Chattanooga, TN

Did you know that “The Chattanooga Choo Choo” became the number 1 song across the United States on December 7, 1941? It remained as number 1 for nine weeks on the Billboard Best Sellers charts and sold more than one million copies!

Chattanooga was the perfect town to walk around and explore for a long weekend visit. Starting off with a morning walk across the Walnut Street Bridge, showing off the beautiful views of the Hunter Museum on the other side, was a great way to get a feel for the city. We found a hiking trail around the corner from our Airbnb, which we ended up taking our dog to several times over the weekend. Then, we ended the visit with the Nightfall Music Series with live music, local beer tents and delicious food trucks.
