Nashville is one of our favorite Southern cities. We asked resident and Lex What Wear blogger Alex to recommend her favorite non-tourist attractions.

Fall is the best season for a true Nashville experience. There is so much to see and do, and you can always bet on having the time of your life. With a significant rise in popularity over the past few years, Nashville has taken on many new spots that are mostly unknown to tourists. From cool murals to wineries and local favorites, fall in Nashville does not disappoint.

Some of my favorite fall activities in Nashville include the Nashville Farmer’s Market, Hewitt’s Garden and Design Center, Leiper’s Fork, and a variety of outdoor festivals. But on any given weekend, you can probably find me hopping around town, trying out the best bars and restaurants, and indulging in a good southern brunch.
