Things to do around North Nashville

This neighborhood is one of the best social spots in the city, and choosing between the many restaurants might be the hardest decision you have to make as a resident. Jefferson Street, Buchanan Street, and Germantown all have long-established restaurant districts brimming with highly-rated options. Whether you’re looking for morning coffee, dinner, or a great bar, it’s usually a short walk down the street. Of course, there’s also plenty to see and do when you aren’t testing out the latest foodie fare. Just across Jefferson is the Bicentennial Mall State Park, with the Nashville Farmers Market alongside. Buena Vista Park, which connects to a riverside greenway and the Ted Rhodes Golf Course, bookends the neighborhood to the north. For sports fans, Nashville’s baseball team, The Sounds, play right in Germantown’s backyard, and TopGolf is just a pitching wedge over the Cumberland River. Of course, if you ever do run out of things to do, Downtown Nashville is just a few blocks away.

North Nashville’s diverse real estate market offers an impressive range of properties only minutes from Downtown. Each section has its own distinctive style of living, with housing options to match. Just north of the statehouse grounds, Germantown and Salemtown are full of elegant highrises and condo complexes that usually range from the low-$300Ks to around a million dollars. Sprinkled amongst these options, in areas like Buena Vista and McKissick, are many of the most conveniently-located townhomes and detached single-family homes available in the entire city, many of which are new construction. While single-family homes in these areas might fetch upward of $700k, prices diminish as you move further from downtown. Outside of I-65, neighborhoods consist largely of two or three-bedroom homes on small lots that range between $250k and $500k based on their square footage and how recently they were built.

The rental market is robust and competitive, especially in the most affordable areas like Hadley and Watkins Park. In Germantown, where there are more available rental properties, rent often climbs into the $2,000-$2,500 range. Rental options are normally confined to condos and apartments, as the few available detached homes tend to be snatched up quickly. Whatever your preference and budget, however, there’s likely an ideal housing option within this broad expanse of residential properties.
