Sylvan Park and The Nations Travel Guide

Sylvan Park and The Nations

Sylvan Park and The Nations are constantly growing, with new shops and restaurants frequently opening along Charlotte and 51st avenues. Sylvan Park’s quiet residential areas feature a variety of architectural styles, from bungalows to Victorian homes, whereas The Nations, west Nashville’s last major urban enclave before the rolling hills, hiking trails, and green spaces of neighboring Bellevue, is notorious for new development. The economic transition in the neighborhood has caused tension among developers and residents of the area. Despite the changing landscape, though, down-to-earth local establishments remain strongholds here. Those seeking diverse dining, boutiques, green spaces, and a low-key atmosphere will find much to explore.
