Music City was a blast!! We went to see LIGHTS in concert at Mercy Lounge earlier this year and decided to make a trip of it! We spent 3 days in Nashville and it was the perfect amount of time to see some of the most popular sights Nashville has to offer!!
The Parthenon is the centerpiece of Centennial Park. For a slight fee, you can go inside and see the rich history of how it was placed there for Nashville’s 1897 Centennial Exposition and an art museum on another floor. It was very cool and I highly recommend it if you’ve never been! I had no clue it was even there until we started researching Nashville.
Belle Meade Mansion & Wine Tasting
The Belle Meade Plantation has existed in some form dating back to the early 1800’s. We took a tour of the Mansion and it was absolutely gorgeous inside. It was so interesting to learn the history of the estate and the family. There were several things to see including the mansion, a cabin, a wine tasting area and more.
See the tomb of Andrew Jackson, tour his home, and see the garden and grounds at The Hermitage. Just a short drive outside of Nashville, this is definitely a sight to see if you are a history buff like my Hubby!! The mansion is beautifully decorated and you will not believe the detail of the wallpaper inside. It has been restored and has many of Jackson’s original belongings inside now. We took the guided Mansion tour and the audio tour of the grounds.
The Bluebird Cafe
The Bluebird Cafe is one of the most prominent listening rooms in Nashville. You have to make a reservation or risk standing in line for quite some time just trying to get in. We lucked out and got tickets to an earlier show and it was awesome! The all-girl band we saw, ___, was fantastic. Did you know that Garth Brooks once played their open mic night?! So much history!!
