Ryman Auditorium, doesn't matter what kind of show they're having ... its the best little concert venue in North America.
I just walk up and down Broadway mostly. It's fun barhopping on a Friday-Saturday night, when it's Spring/Summertime.
While not exactly in Nashville, two of my favorite attractions in the area are the Carter House in Franklin and the Sam Davis Estate in Smyrna.
The Carter House is enjoyable in many ways. The guides are well-informed and interesting and the whole story of Tod Carter and his death as a soldier, after being shot, literally, in his own back yard is fascinating. The structures on the property that are still ridiculed with bullet holes are well preserved and eye catching. And one of my favorite parts of the site are the old pictures of the Carter property from before the turn of the 20th Century that show it to be deserted farmland, despite the fact that it is actually in downtown Franklin. It really shows how much that area has grown.
The Sam Davis Estate is just a pretty neat place that features five or six houses on a picturesque property on the banks of a large creek. I found the story of the "Boy Hero of the Confederacy" and his execution is compelling and I especially liked that the large rock that Davis hid his horse behind when visiting home, so as to avoid Union detection, was still in place.
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
Grand Ole Opry
Bluebird Cafe (and maybe even Donut Den since it is less than a mile away)
Bell Meade Plantation
Tootsie's Orchid Lounge (downtown on Broadway, within walking to stadium)
Parthenon and Centennial Park
General Jackson Riverboat Tours (if staying around Opry Mills area, will take to stadium on gamedays!)
It's Christmas time. Go see the Rockettes, go to ICE, visit the Opryland Hotel and end your Christmas Day at LP Field watching the Titans beat the Changers.
We've got a great new library that's one of the top ten in the U.S. Worth a tour if you're the kind of person who can enjoy walking around a pretty fantastic library. 7th and Church, roughly.
How about food spots? Anyone have any good suggestions.
Use club soda, should remove the spots.:moon2:
I don't know why we needed a new library, we already had the worlds largest bookstore...
