The hospitality industry - hotels, restaurants, attractions, tours, and shops - have taken a hit in the interest of public health and safety. But you can still support the people and places that extend Nashville's well-known Southern hospitality to the world. Here are some ideas.
Many local businesses have an online store. Buy clothes, books, specialty food items, and gift cards.
Restaurants are now only offering delivery and takeout options. Order your next meal from a local restaurant and enjoy it in the comfort of your own home.
You can also tip a service industry worker through serviceindustry.tips!
Most hospitality businesses offer gift cards. So even if you can't visit them now, buy a gift card for when you can. Or stock up and give out as presents to loved ones on special holidays throughout the year.
