Music City USA is one of the nicest cities in the South. Although the locals don’t all wear cowboy hats, it’s ok if you do! Whether you’re coming to visit for a conference or for pleasure there are a few things that you must do. Here’s a short list of places you must see while stopping in Nashville.
Top 5 places to visit in Nashville, Tennessee
1. Fort Nashborough in the heart of downtown. Easy to find, full of history and enjoyable for the whole family. It’s one place you should be sure to check out while in Nashville. Right by the Cumberland River on 1st Avenue.
2. While downtown be sure to check out the nightlife for the little known Printers Alley, known mostly to the locals. You will hear music and have fun in some local color at the bars in this area (and enjoy some adult time!). This is in between 4th and 3rd Ave off of Church Street.
3. The Parthenon: A little bit of Athens in the South. This full replica of the Parthenon in Greece is a lovely place to have a picnic in the park and then move on inside to the museum housed inside the Parthenon. Don’t let Athena the Goddess scare you off while she stands by those huge doors! This can be found at 2500 West End Avenue.
4. The Bluebird Cafe. This is a favorite of the country music fans and a classic Nashville stop where you can find good food and music. You can find the Bluebird Cafe at 4104 Hillsboro Pike Nashville, TN.
5. Antique Archaeology – The American Pickers Store. If you are a fan of the show American Pickers on A&E then you’ll want to pop in here and check out the things Frank and Mike have found over the years. It’s a tiny place but rich in items with tons of history. This is really close to downtown at 1300 Clinton St., Suite 130 (Marathon Village), Nashville.
