Moving to Nashville--where should I live?

dashrashi | Apr 25, 2010 01:54 PM

After spending the first 25 years of my life on the Northeast Corridor, I am moving to Nashville for one year over Memorial Day weekend. I'll be working downtown, and I'm not much of a driver, so I'm hoping to avoid having to buy a car. (My partner does have a car for big trips to the grocery store and such, but really we're urban-types who are used to walking/public-transiting it everywhere.) Are there any specific neighborhoods that I should be considering for the apartment search? Ideally, there would be a corner grocery or similar within a 5-10 minute walk, one (or more) casual dinner-y place within a 15 minute walk, and, in an ideal world, a weekend breakfast place within a 15-20 minute walk. What neighborhoods have enough of a walkable feel, good food options, and are downtown-accessible? Or am I going to have to suck it up, buy a car and get used to driving for the 9 PM ice cream run?
