If I (Lauren) told my teenage self that I would be coming back to my hometown and living in an RV park at 30 something, I’m not sure she would have thought it was cool. But, it sure was fun visiting in our #Airstream.

Since Nashville, Tennessee is my hometown, we visited some of my favorite local businesses and some new favorites too. We visited our favorite vegan restaurant, Veggie Villiage, and got to chat with the owners Mrs. Gail and Chef Troy about how their American dream came to life. We also explored new and old local favorites at the Nashville Farmer’s Market. And finally capped off our adventure with a visit to Yazoo Brewing, Nashville’s first craft brewery.

Nashville is so much more than country music, cowboy boots, and bachelorette parties (yes, this is where I had mine – but I’m from here – so it’s excusable!). In this video, we share a little bit into the life of what it’s like to live and love in Nashville.

__ 🗺️ ABOUT WANDERLOCAL _________________________

Hello, friends! We’re Lauren and Daniel. For nearly a decade, we chased the American dream of owning our own business. We built a successful communications agency and had “it all” but were tired, overworked, and unfulfilled.

After watching a documentary on minimalism in January 2019, we sold everything, except our company, and took off to travel the world!

But after a year and a half of travel, we got stuck in Morocco and had to take a US rescue flight home during COVID-19. So, needless to say, we’re pretty excited to stay on American soil for a while.

We’ve always been passionate about exploring local while we travel, but small businesses need all of us to #shoplocal now more than ever, and we want to inspire people to do just that.

We’re on a mission to visit all 50 states in 365 days while shopping 100% American made, all in an Airstream.

It’s our hope by sharing our adventures and tips for shopping locally, you will be inspired to do the same – creating your own incredible memories in our beautiful country while you #wanderlocal.
