Nashville's reputation as the kingdom of country music may be what puts it on the map, but across the river is a new land. East Nashville once began as a separate city filled with Victorian homes in the post Civil-War boom, but is now known as one of the hippest neighborhoods in Tennessee.

Boutiques, restaurants, brew pubs and clubs decorate the entire area. Visitors can spend days sampling all these different fun spots, but if you're feeling overwhelmed, here's a little starter-set until you become a well-seasoned Nashville foodie. 

Marche Artisan Foods on 1000 Main St. is known for its European style. Its seasonal menu, baked goods and sunny room welcome guests back again and again. Looking for a more rustic French and Italian feel? Margot Cafe and Bar on 1017 Woodland St. may be a challenge to nab reservations for, but its worth the wait.

Is your sweet tooth tugging at your gums? The Pied Piper Creamery on 114 South 11th St. is a sugar rush waiting to happen. Try its signature flavor: Trailer Trash, which consists of Oreo, Twix, Butterfinger, Nestle Crunch, Snickers, M&Ms and Reese's Pieces mixed in vanilla ice cream. Still not enough? Oliver and Sinclair Chocolate Co. on 1628 Fatherland Street roasts, stone-grinds and sells self-proclaimed Southern artisan chocolate. Read More
