Coffee? Check. Food? Check. Bowling? Check. Karaoke? Check.

Wait a minute, bowling and coffee in one spot? YES.

This upscale but casual dining spot is one of the coolest places to hangout (and take photos) in Nashville. Not to mention, the old-school bowling lanes and neon sign will give your feed some serious vintage vibes minus all the filters.

Located on the historic Cheek estate, there are 55 acres of rich history and natural beauty for you to explore at this botanical garden and museum of art.

Originally built in 1929, this is definitely one of the best places to take pictures in Nashville if you’re looking for a spot that’s full of untold stories.

Fun fact: This is one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world!

Besides its scenic views and striking architectural forms, that title alone makes this pedestrian bridge one of the most iconic places to take pictures in Nashville.

Here’s a spot for all the coffee addicts! This super hip coffee shop is the perfect place to get a quick caffeine fix and some fresh content for the ‘gram.

From meticulously arranged flatlays, to ‘candid’ shots of you enjoying your cup of joe – you also should get your poses ready for a trip to the mural room.



5. The Parthenon at Centennial Park

View this post on Instagram

Did you think this is in Athens? Nope, you’re wrong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This beauty is actually a pretty good replica in Nashville, built all the way back in 1897. The building was part of a world exhibit, but the locals loved it so much that they decided not to tear it down after the fair was over. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you realized American architecture is quite heavily influenced by Roman and Ancient Greek architecture? Any ideas why that is? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Skip the trip to Greece, because this full scale replica of the Parthenon is one of the most stunning places to take pictures in Nashville. Once you’ve revered in its beauty, there’s also a collection of American paintings for you to check out in between photo ops!

A trip to Nashville isn’t complete without visiting a national historic landmark, such as one of the most famous concert halls in the history of country music!

You might even get to catch one of the auditorium’s live music events while you’re there.

Your Instagram is seriously missing something if you haven’t featured a mural or two on your feed! Head to this mural for a quick photoshoot against a wall of gigantic sunflowers.

For an #OOTD shoot, this is definitely one of the best places to take pictures in Nashville!

Experience this city’s rich history with a trip to this 19-acre park, which features a massive amphitheater, a 200-foot granite map of Tennessee, and a World War II Memorial.

With a number of scheduled events going on throughout the year, keep your eyes peeled for something special while you’re in the area!

🎼And this imaginary confidence ⁣ became the first line of defense⁣ If you don't let 'em in, boy, ⁣ they'll never let you down🎶🖤⁣ ~BJ Barham⁣ (@americanaquarium) ⁣ Finally caught a show at The Bluebird for my first time! BJ kicked off his set tonight with a song that’s meant a lot to me over the last few months ⬆️. I’ve watched him tell his stories 7 times over, but tonight he was particularly on point. Perfect first @bluebirdcafetn experience! Well done, sir. 🎸🤘🏼

Fun fact: This is the spot where Garth Brooks was discovered – along with a number of other well-known artists!

Can you really say that your trip to Nashville was complete without visiting one of the most iconic music venues in the city?

Located in the Greater Nashville area, in the city of Arrington, you can expect live music, free wine tastings, and a bunch of vintage-looking pics from a visit to this vineyard – what more is there to ask for?
