Fall means football season in Nashville and with cooler temperatures, it is a great time to see a game at Nissan Stadium. Let us help you make the most of your trip to Nashville and see the best of Music City before and after the game.
Where to Eat/Drink
- Nashville Hot Chicken: You can’t leave Nashville without trying this local specialty. This famous dish is served on white bread and pickle chips and covered in a very spicy sauce. Legend has it that this dish originated as a way for a woman to get back at her cheating husband. We don’t know about that, but we guarantee it will keep you warm on cool fall days. You can try Hattie B’s, Bolton’s Spicy Chicken and Fish and Prince’s Hot Chicken, but almost every restaurant has one.
