Nashville’s historic Gulch District, originally the home of the downtown railroad terminal, is now a hot spot for young urbanites. The neighborhood combines an industrial background with contemporary style, including renovated warehouses, modern high-rises, mixed-use developments and loft apartments. The area is also home to trendy shops and cafes; the key is that you can visit the grocery store, a museum and a chic boutique all without getting into a car. Popular spots include Watermark, Sambuca, Bar Louie and Cantina Laredo. In 2009, the Gulch became the 13th neighborhood in the world—and the first in the South—to receive LEED certification.
