Hidden away between the suburban streets where West End meets Hillsboro Village lies the picturesque park called Love Circle. This local lookout area allows visitors to see all of Nashville from afar, giving the perfect setting for a skyline backdrop. During the summer, many people enjoy their golden hour atop the mighty tall hill in hopes for a gorgeous watercolor sunset at this residential vantage point.

Nothing screams ‘basic’ more than taking a semi-inspiration picture in front of the black-and-silver #WhatLiftsYou Wings in the Gulch. New to the sleek modern area, the line to take snapshots sometimes takes as long as waiting for a table at Biscuit Love (which is quite the popular breakfast spot just down the street). Channel your inner angel and pretend that halo fits you snug while you get that ‘Gram.

Draper James Striped Wall
Calling all fashion bloggers! We have found you the cutest colored backdrop that you have always wanted in your wildest dream. Stage your own photoshoot aside Reese Witherspoon’s Southern charm store with an iced coffee from Frothy Monkey in hand. The sky blue and white stripes make us daydream about getting all the ‘likes’ with the most casual staged-candid photo.

I Believe in Nashville Mural
After you finish looking fabulous upon the Draper James wall, turn around and bam! Another photo op ready to go. Probably the most popular picture spot in all of Nashville, the ‘I Believe in Nashville’ mural has become a great stop to document your stay in Music City. The mural does say it all though: once you visit Music City, it’s rare to leave not loving at least one part of it.

Pedestrian Bridge Skyline
Okay, we admit that tourists may know about this one. It’s pretty obvious to point out the Pedestrian Bridge from downtown and think it’d be a good place to take a tacky tourist pic. Hear us out though: it’s all in the caption. Whether visitors choose to have the city skyline in the background or snap a picture of the industrial architecture of the bridge itself, the caption you use truly tells all. Be clever and quick with this Nashville attraction.

Stay Tuned Mural
What’s more artsy than a Technicolor mural right in the heart of the hip East Nashville borough? If you’re over in this trendy part of the city, might as well drop by and check out the colorful wall. Whatever picture you capture will scream Nashville loud and clear thanks to the structured color design and the fact that, well, it says Nashville in pretty lettering.

Union Station Hotel
The Union Station Hotel is like no other; the grand old-fashioned architecture dazzles far beyond any other boutique inn as it once was a railroad terminal. The Gothic theme flows from high ceiling to designed floor, making for a unique backdrop like never before. We suggest heading up a couple floors to get a wide view of the hotel’s interior. If that doesn’t get you a load of comments, we don’t know what will.
