Once a year, we get the college girls together for a reunion trip. I’m very lucky that I met some of my best friends today at school. We were all from different places (South Carolina, Chicago, Texas, DC) and in different sororities, but we came together through one avenue or another until we all eventually lived (or might as well have lived) under one roof.
Outside of location, not much has changed since college. We’re one big loud, inappropriate family and we’d all be in big trouble if anyone ever got to reading our group text thread. Each year we pick a different city and hop on planes to have an in-person catch up. We talk about new friends, new jobs, new boyfriends (old boyfriends), and everything in between. All over a cocktail (or 12). This year, we somehow got everyone’s schedules aligned and headed to
Where we stayed:
This house. Highly recommend. It’s an easy Uber to all of the places listed below and has a great deck/patio. Amy is also an angel and very accommodating.
Where we ate:
Where we drank:
DON’T have your bachelorette party here. There are 10,000 bachelorette parties happening and you will not feel like the special bride to be you should. We did not meet a single person who didn’t ask us “Who’s getting married?!”, at which point someone in the group yelled “ME! I’m so excited, we’re so happy together!!!” (no one in this group is engaged).
DO have your bachelor party here. See above. You’re friends will thank you.
DO visit Austin first. I know I’m more than biased here, but stick with me. While Nashville is an absolute blast, we all agreed it was a more commercialized, touristy, and spread out version of Austin.
DO Airbnb. It’s easy to get around by Uber and it’s fun to have the extra space if you have a big group.
DO pace yourself. Drinking is an all day activity in Nashville.
