Journey Into
America’s "It" City

Introvert

Ladies Wine and Design
Ladies, Wine & Design
Ladies, Wine & Design is a monthly gathering for professional women in design who seek connection, support, and engagement.
Bells Bend Park
Bells Bend Park
Filmmaker Quinton Hickman heads here in Nashville to help him hone his "aesthetic of the sublime."
Group Activities
Nashville has many possibilities for your posse. Your weekends together in the "It" City just got a lot better.
Art Student
There will be times when you need to resupply your toolkit and times when you'll want to be inspired by the works of others. We have both covered. 
Tourist
When parents and friends are in town, you may want to play the tourist (and that's fine!). Fortunately, Nashville delivers even when there's a crowd.
Foodie
