7 Uniquely Nashville Attractions You Won’t Find Anywhere Else In The World
When you think about what makes Nashville unique, you probably think about all of the country music, the lively scene of Lower Broadway, or maybe even the particular way Nashville Predators fans like to tell opposing players how bad they are. But if you’re looking for that truly unique, one-of-a-kind experience in Nashville, you might have to get a little more off the beaten trail….
1. Dur Demarion
Okay, so LARP-ing (Live Acction Role Playing) happens everywhere, but nowhere does it like Nashville. Head out to Elmington Park on West End on Sundays to see Nashville's medieval society show up to beat each other up with foam weapons. You can even join in if you want!
2. Lane Motor Museum
The Lane Motor Museum is by far Nashville's most underrated museum. They specialize in rare vehicles including self-balancing two-wheeled cars and the smallest car ever produced! Find out more
at their website
3. Goats, Music, & More Festival
Every October in Lewisburg, just south of Nashville, tens of thousands of people come to this festival to check out the goats, the music, and, well, everything else. It often draws pretty large headliners for the concerts, making this one of the best festivals in the state.
4. The Hermitage Hotel Men's Bathroom
Yeah, this is a weird one, but this bathroom has won multiple awards throughout the years for being one of the best decorated bathrooms in the world. That's right -- the world. The immaculately restored art deco style actually draws tourists of its own. Only in Nashville.
5. Bluegrass Underground
Every summer in Cumberland Caverns, just a short drive east of Nashville, there's a concert series that takes place entirely underground. The stage is at the far end of the cave's Volcano Room (don't worry -- there are no actual volcanoes), and it's truly one of the most unique experiences you'll ever have.
6. Tomato Art Fest
Every August, in the dead heat of the summer, East Nashville shows up in the Five Points area for the neighborhood's favorite festival. The entire thing is dedicated to tomatoes (and art about tomatoes), and folks always dress up in their best tomato costumes. It's truly a one-of-a-kind experience.
7. The Parthenon
Okay, so there's a real Parthenon in Greece, but this is the only full-scale replica in the world. Built originally for the World's Fair in 1897, the building still stands and still houses a full-sized, 42-foot tall statue of Athena.
