People Watching on Lower Broadway

Honky Tonk Row, or Lower Broadway, is the place to see and be seen. With Hillbilly music filling the streets from Honky Tonk after Honky Tonk, tourists and musicians alike head to the Row to get their two-step on. 

One of our favorite things to do in Nashville is to wade in and out of the crowds, snapping photos, observing the chaos, and enjoying ourselves. (One of our other favorite things to do in Nashville is to hide from the Downtown scene - trust us when we say you have to be ready to battle when you go downtown!)

The Salt and Pepper Shaker Museum

While the history of the salt and pepper shaker is fascinating, we were most impressed by what it looks like when you fill a small museum with all of the colors and shapes of 20,000 kitschy and classy salt and pepper shakers.

Williamsburg, Kentucky

Kathy Sullivan’s favorite holiday is Thanksgiving - it’s the only holiday where all seven of her children travel home. She’d prefer if her kids lived closer, but, “jobs being what they are…” Kathy has lived in the small town of Williamsburg, Kentucky for 56 years, and she’s seen quite a bit of change. 

“People aren’t as nice as they used to be, I hate to say it, but they aren’t.” As Kathy speaks she gestures up the road, towards a row of shuttered buildings, “they’d been in business my whole life, but not anymore.” 

Kathy unlocked the door to the abandoned post office and sighed. She’s a custodian at the courthouse and volunteered her time so we could photograph the town’s WPA mural. Boxes were piled ceiling high. An old plastic Christmas tree slouched in the corner. There was a dead bird in the entryway. 

“It would be a shame if they tear this building down. Look at these floors!” she pointed towards the marble. “I think there are grants or something we could apply to, to save this building.”

She sighed. We sighed, wished her a “Happy Thanksgiving,” and headed on our way.
