Country music’s rich history and traditions are showcased at the Grand Ole Opry, which you should by no means miss on your trip to Nashville as it really embodies what this musically buzzing city is all about.
The same is true of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and you can also drop into the Ryman Auditorium to see live performances and revivals of hits from the past.
At the other extreme, Nashville Zoo has been voted one of the USA’s top zoos and has everything from tigers to macaws on display in open habitats. Pick up an All About Nashville Attraction Pass to get the most out of your visit, with discounts on museum entries and tours.
President Andrew Jackson used to live here at The Hermitage. The building is typical of the 1800s Deep South building style, and many of the great man’s memorabilia are on display.
Although Nashville is renowned for its country music scene, if this starts to jade you, you can always visit the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, which stages world-class classical music concerts. The hall is home to the award-winning Nashville Symphony Orchestra and you can catch concerts here throughout the year.
