Ask anyone who lives in one of its beautiful high-rise condos, and they will tell you that The Gulch is Nashville’s hippest and trendiest neighborhood. Located just south of Downtown Nashville, the community was once a busy train terminal which gives it a cool, industrial vibe. By the late 1990s, it was well on its way to becoming a mecca for young adults, urbanites, and professionals who work in Downtown and need an exciting place to unwind.
Overview of The Gulch
Interstates 40 and 65, the CSX railroad line, and a few blocks of Broadway form the boundaries for The Gulch, which became the only LEED certified Green Neighborhood in the South in 2009. This makes it the perfect place for anyone who enjoys city life but wants to stay conscientious of the environment.
The Gulch is home to plenty of office space, but its proximity to Downtown and all of Nashville’s biggest interstates makes it a great place for commuters to live. Its shopping, dining, and nightlife make it an even better place to live. Take a stroll down the street — The Gulch is very walkable — and you’ll see names you recognize like Ann Taylor LOFT, Urban Outfitters, and even a McDonald’s, but the majority of retail space is home to smaller independent business like coffee shops, pubs, and eclectic clothing and accessories shops.
The Gulch sits next to Music Row, but it is also home to its fair share of interesting places to hear a live show. The historic Station Inn, known as one of the best bluegrass venues in the world, is located here. Everyone from Dolly Parton and Ralph Stanley to Randy Travis and Reba McEntire has performed there.
