While they may seem the same, to a person with anxiety, the difference between fear versus anxiety are huge. My fears occur naturally all of the time, but my anxiety occurs during unusually mundane situations.
As a guest at my friend’s wedding, I was suddenly stricken by anxiety’s unforgiving grip. I felt the need to run away and escape. My wedding guest anxiety flipped on and off throughout the night. In contrast to this wedding, I was a bridesmaid in another wedding and feared for the worst since my anxiety had hit me so hard at the last wedding.
A few weekends ago, I joined my friend from high school for her bachelorette party in Nashville, Tennessee. Having never been to the Music City (or a bachelorette party for that matter), I was not sure what to expect. But after a long, exciting weekend in the Country Music Capital of the World, I figured I would share what I learned.
Where to Stay in Nashville
We opted to stay in an Airbnb rather than a hotel. With a hotel we would have either had to spend a fortune on a giant suite or deal with separate rooms that could be on different
floors entirely. An Airbnb allowed us to comfortably pregame and get ready together. Our house was kick-ass and leaned into the Nashville theme with its decor. It was a couple of minutes from the main road in the cute neighborhood of 12 South. (I highly recommend walking this area if you have time. Read on for more information.)
The downfall to Airbnb is that they are usually a little farther from downtown. We had to take turns ordering a Lyft or Uber to go anywhere. The prices were anywhere from $10-$25 to get downtown for an XL, but be mindful of the surcharge times. (**Note- We consistently found Lyft to be slightly cheaper than Uber. )
If your check in is too late or your check out is too early, there is an alternative to lugging around all of your heavy bags. Try the Stow Station.
