People are moving everyday to claim Nashville as their new home. We’re excited to be working with Nearly Native as she shares her journey and exactly how she is #LivingTN
I’ve taken my cue from Nashville’s growth and progress by #LivingTN through meeting new people and exploring new places on my lifestyle blog, Nearly Native.
Living in Nashville, Tennessee is uniquely wonderful. Of course, most people can say this about their respective locale, especially those that love it enough to call it “home”. However, to this transplant from north of the Mason-Dixon line, this southern city has stolen my heart. With a constant influx of diverse residents introducing new points of view, this city has an evolving social and dining culture, abundant outdoor activities, and lines that are regularly blurred between business and pleasure. I’ve taken my cue from Nashville’s growth and progress by #LivingTN through meeting new people and exploring new places on my lifestyle blog, Nearly Native. By #LivingTN I’m not afraid to check out the latest restaurant, test a fitness class, or be the virtual best friend for someone who’s new to town and isn’t quite sure where they belong.
With an ever-increasing number of local restaurants popping up, I happily sink my teeth into countless cuisines in cities all across Tennessee. Dining out is especially part of our social culture here in Nashville, allowing us to form common bonds with friends over indulging in new dishes. I try my best to bring the latest and greatest in all things food to my friends in the Music City, while understanding that my palate is not the same as the next person. I’m no food critic, so I elaborate on what people really want to know: logistics like parking or popular times, where to take a date or hold a business meeting, and what will surely showcase Nashville’s diverse dining spirit for visitors. By trying new restaurants and asking the questions that locals want to know, I strive to help Nashville newbies live like Tennesseans through a delicious dining options!
Beyond identifying dining destinations, I push myself outside of my comfort zone with local activities in order to bring some of the best of what Nashville has to offer to my followers. Meaning that I’m actually crazy enough to try those sweat-inducing fitness classes, local hiking paths, and group classes by myself in order to get every detail. It can be hard to attend new classes or explore the outdoors on your own, and I encourage my followers to take a chance on something new! Some fitness studios may not have a shower or others might call for specific apparel– things you might not know without going first. With Nearly Native, I put myself to the test and return with results, including things that you need to know before you go.
To me, #LivingTN is about finding your place, but you can’t do that without first taking some chances and meeting new people.
Beyond detailed blog posts, I create quick and easy guides to all areas of a #LivingTN lifestyle. Whether you’re looking for brunch or local shopping by neighborhood, dining by your dietary preferences, or you just want somewhere to dance, I present options for Nashvillians to pick their poison. To me, #LivingTN is about finding your place, but you can’t do that without first taking some chances and meeting new people. So, arming Nashvillians with the knowledge to try something new through the eyes of someone who’s nearly a native (just like most of them) is how I embrace this great southern state every day.
