Nashville Murals

Which came first, Instagram or cities creating way more murals than they used to have?  I'm not sure.  Nashville has definitely been stepping up its mural game.  My friend B and I like to do something fun when we get together, so a while back (truth: I think it was May or June) we had a delicious brunch at Marché Artisan Foods, then went driving around town to take photos with some of our fav murals.  

My advice is to choose your neighborhoods and have a plan in mind, so you can park and walk between murals easily.  We found free parking (at least long enough to snap a pic) pretty much everywhere for these.

Here's where we ended up!

I'm not the first or last to post about Nashville murals, but I will say we had a lot of fun being tourists in our own area.  It was funny to see certain murals' popularity, as there were times we had to queue up to take our turn for a photo!

There are SO MANY more we haven't visited, too!

One of my fav local bloggers, Kristin Luna, did an even  bigger mural post/adventure if you're interested.

Do you have a favorite Nashville mural?
