Part of our adventure is to see the local life. Look at what each town is known for and really embrace what we find in each area has to other tourists. We try to make each field trip an educational one but sometimes we must have a little fun as well. While visiting Nashville, we came across some wonderful places to visit. We often start with a little research of the area, use Groupon to find discounts, ask locals for recommendations, and watched the local TV stations for ideas.
Nashville is no exception to the rules. We could have spent more time there and still not have finished visiting all there is to offer in Nashville. We must save some for next time we come through. For now, here are our field trips that we have visited while we were there.
Country Music Hall of Fame – This is right next to Music City Center and across from the Bridgestone Arena. We enjoyed exhibits from Loretta Lynn to Tim McGraw & Faith Hill. We were able to find discount tickets using Groupon. This is a Highly Recommended Attraction even if you don't like country music there is a Music Legend in here that you know.
The Parthenon – This place is really neat to see. We were unable to visit during the day but Russ and Amber made sure they went to visit at night to capture a few shots. When we go back to Nashville this will be on the list to visit.
Grand Ole Opry – The Opry House does offer tours, the day we went there was show going on and was unable to go on a tour. We enjoyed the outside.
Gaylord Opryland – We have a Gaylord Hotel in Orlando near the major attractions. I was pleasantly surprised that this hotel is unique in its own way and a few similarities to the one in Orlando. It's quite a show and you can spend a good few hours looking at the different aspects of each wing of the hotel. Worth the visit and you can go shopping at the Opry Mills Mall after words.
Until next time – Bobbi
