Ah, Nashville.

It’s one of the hottest cities in the country right now, with millions of people visiting Music City every year. And honestly, it’s a pretty incredible place. The live music, the food, the culture – there’s a lot to love about the city, and it’s filled with hidden gems that are off the beaten path.

But sometimes you just have to forget about getting off the beaten path, and just be “basic” as all hell.

And there’s no better city to be your basic AF self in… than Nashville.

Here’s how:

1. Inform everybody on your social media that “Nashville’s not ready for you.”

(Nashville’s ready for you. And Nashville will win. Every. Single. Time).

2. Wait in line for three hours to get your picture taken in front of the angel wings mural.

3. Or any mural, for that matter.

4. And don’t forget the “Rosé all day” sign at Hampton Social.

5. And hashtag all your pictures #NashVegas.

6. Wear this hat.

12. Become a real woo girl (or guy) and hop on a party bus.

13. Or a pedal tavern.

14. Or roll the dice and jump in a hot tub.

18. Then for lunch it’s hot chicken – from Hattie B’s, obviously. And of course you have to ‘gram it.

20. Check social media for Morgan Wallen sightings – or any celebrity for that matter.

21. Check out the “local bars” on Demonbreun Street – and mispronounce Demonbreun.

22. Ride a mechanical bull (concussion optional).

23. Rent a scooter you’re in no condition to operate.
