Things To Do in Nashville

Discover the Grand Ole Opry

The Grand Ole Opry, which began as a radio broadcast in 1925, helped to establish Nashville as the "Country Music Capital of the World." Legendary artists including Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban have all performed here on a regular basis. Almost a century later, it continues to provide the finest in country, folk, gospel, and bluegrass music. Seeing a concert here will undoubtedly be a once-in-a-lifetime event. A midday backstage tour with skilled interpreters who will regale you with anecdotes as you roam through its 18 historic dressing rooms is also available. Later, at the Opryland Hotel, savor the Opry Back Porch BBQ.

Explore the Belle Meade Historic Mansion and Winery

Belle Meade Plantation, located 8 miles southwest of downtown Nashville, belonged to Nashville's wealthiest family, who also controlled the biggest thoroughbred horse farm in the United States. The spectacular Greek revival style palace in the center of the plantation's 30 acres of well-kept grounds was built in 1853 and is peppered with Civil War bullet wounds. You may walk around the grounds and home with guides dressed in period attire who will tell you about the slaves' ties with the plantation owners and their ultimate liberation. This hour-long 'Journey to Jubilee Tour' is a fan favorite. Another popular trip for families and younger people is 'Stories of Slavery and Freedom.' Later on, you may choose to sip wine from the on-site winery.

Visit the Parthenon

Nashville was known as a hub of higher learning before it became renowned for country music, due to the several institutions and universities that were built here. In 1897, a full-scale copy of Athens' Parthenon was erected here, earning it the moniker "Athens of the South." Nashville's Parthenon, located in Centennial Park, now serves as a magnificent art museum, displaying replicas of sculptures seen within the original, as well as paintings by 19th and 20th century American painters. The most popular tourist attraction is a 42-foot-tall figure of Athena wrapped in gold leaves. The site is lit at night, and you will enjoy exploring it.
