One of the most well-known (and sought after) neighborhoods in Nashville, Hillsboro Village lies to the south of downtown and offers easy access to Vanderbilt, downtown, West End, Belmont, and major interstates. Known for its walkability, Hillsboro Village offers great coffee shops, restaurants, unique shopping, and fun entertainment.
History and What It Has to Offer
As Nashville began to grow at the turn of the twentieth century, streetcar lines were developed to provide affordable transportation and ease the crowding of the inner city. As part of the former sprawling Belmont estate, Hillsboro Village saw a blooming of homes and neighborhoods. With the high influx of new population, stores began to pop up along the main drag of 21st Avenue South, serving the needs of the incoming residents. Today, Hillsboro Village continues to be a bustling neighborhood with easy access to all parts of Nashville. With shops, local universities, medical centers, and eateries (not to mention Belcourt Theater), Hillsboro Village provides it all. And while the main thoroughfares are undoubtedly busy, as you get off the hustle of 21st Avenue South, you’ll find comfortable and quiet neighborhoods.
