Earlier this month, I got to experience the trip of a lifetime to Nashville with Lexus. Although I frequently visit Nashville to see family, I got to see the Music City in a whole new light!
A huge thank you to the amazing Lexus team for perfecting each and every detail to make the Lexus Nashville Bestie Bash a trip I will remember forever! Also thank you to my dear friend Tara Gibson @themrsgibby for traveling with me and making the trip extra fun!
One of the highlights of the trip was getting to be one of the first to drive the brand-new 2022 Lexus NX. This vehicle will be hitting dealerships in November and is sooooo impressive. I was incredibly “wowed” with both the interior and exterior styling, the technology, comfort, interior roominess and the way it drives. I LOVED the exterior color, Nori Green, pictured above! So pretty with the two tone Black with Rich Cream interior!
Here are a few fun features of the all-new Lexus NX ::
- All-New NX 350 2.4 Turbo Engine
- Lexus Interface – All-New Multimedia System with available 14-Inch Touchscreen :: this display feels huge and is so easy to navigate!
- First-Ever Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle (PHEV) System
- Lexus Interface with User Profile Feature within the Lexus app and a Digital Key makes vehicle access and parking a breeze
- Left Turn Oncoming Vehicle Detection/Braking & Right/Left Turn Oncoming Pedestrian Detection/Braking
We stayed at the Graduate Nashville, which is the CUTEST hotel I have ever visited! I highly recommend it for your next trip to Nashville. The rooftop bar, called The White Limozeen, is so fun, too, and offers incredible views of the city!
Another favorite experience of the trip was a back-stage tour of the Grand Ole Opry and the opportunity to stand in the infamous “circle.” Truly a once-in-a-life time moment! I learned so much about the history of the Opry and seeing a live show after the tour was the icing on the cake!
We also visited Belmeade Plantation which is gorgeous! My brother and sis-in-law had their wedding reception here, but I had never seen it in the day time. Such a beautiful spot, full of history, and just minutes from downtown Nashville. Also, how stunning is the interior of this NX?!
We celebrated the last night in Nashville with a cocktail reception on the rooftop of the Graduate Hotel, followed by a private show by three local song-writers. Another once-in-a-life time experience to hear the talented ladies who have written songs for some of Country Music biggest stars, including Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney!
Oh, and I forgot to mention that our first night, we dined at Justin Timberlake’s restaurant/rooftop bar called The Twelve Thirty Club on Broadway…and JT was actually there dining! The Twelve Thirty Club is such a fun place to hang out for dinner or drinks, another recommendation for your next trip to Music City.
Thank you to Lexus for including me in such a memorable trip and for spoiling me rotten while in Nashville! Can’t wait to see the new NX’s hit the streets of Atlanta!
