In a city that’s moving and shaking as quickly as Nashville, it’s important to keep up. But that’s easier said than done, especially because there are so many sources of information, including social media.
We don’t know about you, but Instagram is one of our favorite social media platforms. It’s a highly visual medium where you can admire gorgeous shots of the city and discover new places. It’s also perfect for keeping up with your favorite local businesses too. If you’ve got a favorite bar, boutique, or coffee shop in town, chances are they have a impressively curated Instagram that showcases the business and shares information with followers.
To help you starting curating your own list of local Instagrammers, here are six of our favorite Nashville ‘grammers:
