The magic that helps create East Nashville has many parts. Thankfully a key thread linking all of those parts is a healthy lifestyle - if you want it:)
That’s right, between the music rocking The Five Spot or soothing a backyard-BBQ and the tomatoes for art and beer fests you’ll find a uniqueness surrounding a healthy way of living.
As an anchor you’ll find the beautiful Shelby Bottoms greenway, which wraps itself along the Cumberland River. This provides 950 acres of exploring with dual paths for walking/running and for bicycles and the like. You’ll also find playgrounds, ball fields, a golf course and the perfect sledding hill for the one snowfall we get to complete the Greenway area.
East Nashville is a wonderful compilation, by design or not, of cozy pockets of “must visit” areas. Most houses are within walking distance to two or more spots. Take for example living at Riverside Dr & Porter Rd - You could be .5 mile from arguably the best sandwich place on the planet, Mitchell's Deli and 1 mile from Wild Cow, one of the best vegetarian cuisine establishments the city has to offer.
Case in point, Wild Cow serves several dishes between 400-900 calories, 20-40g protein, 40-70g carbs and 25- 30g total fat.
So no matter where you are or what you’re doing while in East Nashville, be sure to enjoy the healthy thread. And if you can’t tell how to get from one pocket to the other just use one of the multiple B-cycle rental hubs in the area.
