Neighborhood Series: 12th Ave South

It’s hard to believe that just over a decade ago, you wouldn’t find much in the neighborhood surrounding 12th Avenue South except houses and schools. Today, 12 South is one of Nashville’s most frequented walking districts, popular with everyone from families out for a stroll with the dog to the downtown office crowd looking for post-work drinks. Grab a taco in the evening or a coffee in the morning, hit the trails in Sevier Park or even pick up a pair of luxury denim from one of 12 South’s stylish, nationally known clothing boutiques. It’s one of the few areas in Nashville where you could spend the day sans car.
