320. Patio Dining in Nashville

It’s spring, which means it’s officially patio weather, right? This weekend, get out and enjoy the outdoors. Start your day with a hike at Percy Warner, Radnor Lake, or if you are feeling really aggressive: try running the stairs at the Belle Meade entrance to Percy Warner. After all that exercise, it’ll be time to kick back and relax. Choose any one of Nashville’s great neighborhoods to do some more exploring, shopping, and people-watching. Next, check out one of Music City’s best patios for a meal under the sun. Enjoy the nice Nashville air, share some laughs with friends, and take in a beautiful Music City sunset. Sounds like a pretty perfect day to us, enjoy!
