Nashville, TN has always been known, obviously for the music, but also restaurants, celebrities and tourist attractions galore. But, in recent years, many beautiful murals have been painted all over the city, making these works of art must-sees in Nashville. They are the perfect place to pose for an Instagram photo, so you’ll have to check them out next time you’re in Music City.

1. I Believe in Nashville: 2706 12th Avenue S

This is the mural that started them all. It is iconic. It shows the Nashville pride that we Tennesseans love to boast.

2. Draper James Stripes: 2707 12th Avenue S

Located directly across the street from the “I Believe in Nashville,” these bright blue and white stripes are the sides of Reese Witherspoon’s Store Draper James in 12South.

3. Sunflowers: Murphy Road

These blooming sunflowers are on the side of an old Import Flower building, and they make for a perfect photo op. The best part is that this street isn’t too busy, so you’ll be able to take that perfect Insta.

4. Dragon Mural: Hillsboro Village

So many bright colors on this colorful dragon.

5. What Lifts You? Wings: 302 11th Avenue S., The Gulch

These twenty-foot tall wings were done fairly recently by artist Kelsey Montague.

6. DCXV's Stay Tuned Mural: 625 Main St., East Nashville

Located pretty much in a parking lot, this one is so bright and beautiful, it will blow your mind.

7. Three Brothers Coffee, 2813 West End Avenue

Grab a latte and pose in the shop’s back alley way. A great photo spot.

Come visit Music City, and in between visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and noshing at some great restaurants, make sure you check out some of the artwork that the city has to offer!

"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

1. Go sky diving.

What's crazier than jumping out of a plane? (Although I'll probably try indoor skydiving first.)

2. Go cliff jumping/diving.

I must be the only Rhode Islander who hasn't gone to Jamestown and jumped off a cliff.

3. Ride in a hor air balloon.

Up, up and away.

4. Try out skiing.

Cash me in the next Olympics, how bout dat.

5. Try out snow boarding.

Shawn White, I'm coming for you.

6. Go bungee jumping.

Because at least this time I'll be attached to something.

7. Go to Portugal.

I mean I'm Portuguese so I have to go at some point, right?

8. Go to Cape Verde.

Once again, I'm Cape Verdean so I have to go.

9. Vist one of the seven wonders of the world.

I mean hey, Egypt's on, my bucket list.

10. Try out surfing.

It's only natural that somebody from the Ocean State knows how to surf.

11. Learn a new langauge.

Because my little bit of Portuguese, Spanish and Latin isn't cutting it anymore.

12. Travel to a state that I've never been to before.

Fun fact: I've only been to 17 of the 50 states.

13. Go paddle boarding.

Pretty boring but I've never done it.

14. Go scuba diving.

I'm from the Ocean State so I guess I should see the ocean up close and personal.

15. Learn how to line dance.

There's actually a barn in my state that does line dancing, so this one will definitely get crossed off.

16. Go kayaking.

All this water around me and I haven't done a lot of the water activites.

17. Stay the night in a haunted hotel room.

I bet if I got my friends to come with me, it would be like the Suite Life of Zach and Cody episode, minus the ghost coming out of the wall but you never know.

18. Get my palms read.

Because who doesn't want to know their future.

19. Go to a medium.

Like a medium that can communicate with people that have died.

20. Take a helicopter ride.

Air plane: check Helicopter:....

21. Sleep under the stars.

Because sleeping in a tent is more like glamping than camping

22. Just to try new things in my everyday life.

Whether it's trying a new restaurant, getting something different at my usual restaurants, changing my usual style, going on the scary rides at amusement parks, and bringing things I used to do back into my life now.

10 Mythological Places I Would Visit If I Could

Reading about a mythological place creates an intense desire for me to go to that place and explore its wonders.

Since I've read Greek mythology, I wished I could see all the magnificent places described. Ranging from Greek to Norse Mythology, here are 10 mythological places I would visit if I could.


1. Avalon


I watched the TV show "Merlin" and read many Arthurian legends which made me sorely wish I could go to legendary place believed to be the final resting point of the great King Arthur. According to many Arthurian sources, it wasn't just Arthur's resting place but also the place that has extraordinary healing powers that helped him live after a major battle. It is also the place where his infamous sword, Excalibur, was first forged.

2. Camelot

Again, after watching "Merlin," I couldn't rest without imagining what it'd be like to live in Camelot under the rule of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. It is also said to be the location of the famous round table and Camelot's royal palace.

3. Atlantis

Many have researched and tried to find Atlantis but it was without success. Ever since, I read about the mythological island, I've always wanted to visit it if it was ever found. Some believe the island never existed as Plato, the starter of the Atlantis legend, stated that the founders of Atlantis were half-god and half-human. Much like the demigods in "Percy Jackson."

4. The Underworld

Greek mythology has been a part of for a long time and I've wanted to visit many of the mythological places mentioned, such as the Underworld, the realm of Hades, Lord of the Dead. I mean, who doesn't want to sneak into Elysium and speak to Achilles or Hercules? Or go and play with the world's largest hellhound Cerberus?

5. Olympus

How cool would it be to see all the Olympians gathered together under one roof? I personally want to meet Athena and Poseidon to know about their famous competition for being the patron of Athens. And I want to meet Artemis, goddess of the moon, hunt, and maidens and learn how to be a great archer.

6. Garden of the Hesperides

Only reason I want to visit is for Ladon, the dragon who guards the Apples of Immortality and to meet the Hesperides.

7. Valhalla

A place where you could die and come back all the time, have all the luxuries you can imagine, and a chance to run into Odin, the All-Father, and his legendary Valkyries? Sign me up please!

8. Themiscyra

I've always been fascinated with the legendary adventures of the Amazons and their ruthlessness in war. Legends say this land of the amazons has was visited by the many Greek heroes and gods such as Zeus and Heracles (Greek form of Hercules). The chance of meeting them, the Amazons, would be the one of the best things ever. Also, Wonder Woman is showed to be an Amazon so that also heightens my desire to go there.

9. Shambala

Many religious texts state that it'd be the final birthplace of the incarnation of the Hindu God Vishnu. It is also said to have many unimaginable powers and beings. It'd be awesome to witness the birth of the incarnation of a god and gain super powers.

10. Asgard

Asgard palace

Asgard is the lavish realm of the gods and is said to be ruled by Odin and Frigga, his wife. It is widely believed to be the equivalent of Mount Olympus from Greek mythology. Asgard is one of the nine realms, connected to the Yggdrasil, which is the tree that connects all the nine realms.
