  • Guide To: The Nations Neighborhood in Nashville, TN

Historically an industrial neighborhood, recent commercial interest around the 51st Avenue area and new housing developments with modern amenities have attracted younger and first-time homebuyers to the Nations. Looking to stake claim in Nashville’s rapidly appreciating real estate market, residents love the way local businesses have created a cozy, approachable feel. 

You can have it all in The Nations where there’s always a porch for enjoying the seasons; breweries with activities like yoga and trivia; walkable work-from-home or weekend coffee spots; and diverse, local restaurants everywhere. 

Fresh air is easiest to come by on the neighborhood’s charming tree-lined streets, but you can also find space to roam at West Park, England Park, and adjacent Centennial Park. If you enjoy cooking with local produce and love to sample local fare, pop into Richland Park Farmers Market every Saturday. It’s a great place to meet your neighbors and has become the city’s most beloved community market.

Speaking of neighbors, The Nations offers a completely free neighborhood association membership for any resident, property owner, or business owner looking to join. Meetings exist so that neighbors can create community and help make the area a better place for everyone to live, work, and play.
