11 Places In Nashville That Are Better Than Anywhere Else In The Country
We tend to think that Nashville is the best city in the country for many reasons of our own, but we’re about to tell you WHY Music City is just so iconic. We’re home to hot chicken and guitar pickin’, great coffee shops and kind people, but we also have some of the most beautiful and expansive history in the south. Take a look, fall in love with the way we once were, and carry on with us to where we’re going.
11. The Johnny Cash Museum
The Johnny Cash Museum honors one of the late, great country music heroes of past and future generations. Located in the heart of downtown, you can now visit the Patsy Cline Museum right upstairs, as well.
10. The Hermitage
Home of former president Andrew Jackson, his spotty reputation and speckled past make for an interesting visit to the expansive estate he once called his own. Still, a visit is well-worth admission even just to experience a bit of local history.
9. The Adventure Science Center
Fun for kids AND adults, the hands-on Adventure Science Center sits right outside of downtown Nashville and offers annual events and experimental evenings for folks of all ages.
8. Tootsie's Orchid Lounge
There's no other honky-tonk more classic than Tootsie's! The upstairs patio is a must for locals and tourists alike, and it's right in the heart of all the fun on Broadway.
7. The Bluebird Café
Where folks like Garth Brooks and Taylor Swift made their start, where young songwriters still perform in hopes of the spotlight. It's a little bit of Hollywood in Nashville, but with a bit more twang.
6. Grand Ole Opry
Do we even need to explain this one? The long-running Grand Ole Opry show is an icon in and of itself. As the longest radio show in history, it boasts a line of reputable artists who've performed on its state.
5. The Schermerhorn Symphony Hall
The beautiful new addition to Nashville's downtown neighborhood hosts upscale classical concerts and fun movie nights for the kids. There's no way to experience Nashville's high brow any better.
4. Radnor Lake
Radnor Lake has a Lake Loop hike that's easy on folks of all ages and great to trample on through during all months of the year. Plus, it's beautifully picturesque.
3. The Country Music Hall of Fame
You can experience the heart of country music's history at the Country Music Hall of Fame, located right downtown and offering multiple events and exhibitions throughout the year.
2. The Parthenon
Did you know that the Parthenon in Nashville is the largest to-scale building replica in the world? Located in Centennial Park, you can play frisbee on the lawn out front and afterwards walk through to see the golden Athena in the museum inside.
1. Ryman Auditorium
Ah, yes. The king of all music venues makes its home in the heart of downtown Nashville, and has some of the best acoustics in the nation. It's the true mark of an artist to play a show at the Ryman, and every new event offers up its own historic Hatch Show Print of the headliner.
