Nashville is called the 'Music City' and it delivers on that score, but there are many other wonderful things to see and savor there. For instance:

  1. Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art, in Brentwood about 5 minutes south of Nashville. Walk through a variety of beautiful gardens and along the 1-mile Sculpture Trail.
  2. Tennessee Performing Arts Center
  3. Frist Center for the Visual Arts
  4. Cumberland River (charter an excursion boat)
  5. Tennessee Central Railway Museum (excursion trains)
  6. The Parthenon in Centennial Park
  7. Wildhorse Saloon ('Country with an Attitude')
  8. Adventure Science Center
  9. Grand Ole Opry
  10. Ryman Auditorium
  11. Country Music Hall of Fame
