    My husband and I visited the Opry on a Friday night and really enjoyed the experience. The facility was very clean, and the staff was friendly. Great visit!

    I did the Ryman VIP tour and it was very much worth it. The tour guide took their time, explained everything, and was exceptionally knowledgable. The group was small (VIP) and, once the tour concluded, we had free reign of the place. The tour lasted 2-1/2 hours and included the dressing rooms.

    Very interesting museum, highlighting both well known and lesser known artists. Exhibits are well curated, and lots of costumes and music throughout the museum!

    Visited Studio B – was a very informative tour but to sit in the Studio where so many famous singers sat and created #1 hits – it was indescribable. A tour guide was very animated which was very welcomed.

    Charming oasis in the middle of the hotel. I could sit there for hours just relaxing and enjoying the scenery. Best of all it’s free lots of nice restaurants around to grab a bite while you’re there.

    This museum was really thought out and creatively designed. Every area of his life is represented. The price was really worth it and the staff were very friendly. I really loved all the different listening stations, very cool. Highly recommend this for anyone who loved JC.

    Great distillery! We didn’t do the tour but enjoyed a flight of bourbon. Fun place to visit while in Nashville. Nice alternative to Broadway!

    Wow, we absolutely LOVED our visit to the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum. It was like getting a behind the scenes tour of the music industry. Well thought out presentation, incredible information and SO many one of a kind items in this museum collection. We would highly recommend visiting!

    I love small cars. I love European cars. I like "weird" cars. This was a slice of heaven for me. There is a nice, make that, very nice selection of all of the above. I saw cars that I only read about. The displays allow you to get up close and really examine and admire the cars/motorcycles plus a few airplanes! The place was fairly busy but you weren't stepping over other people. A nice size building allowing for space around the vehicles and nice wide aisles for you to walk down. Someone really thought about the layout to allow you to photograph with little problems.

    If you're like me and have a thing for the odd/unusual motorized vehicles, take a few hours and walk around in here. You'll be surprised what you'll see!

    We began our second full day in Nashville by visiting Belmont Mansion on the property of Belmont University. Although the estate originally consisted of 180 acres, the mansion is all that remains of it. That said, it was my favorite of the 3 mansions that we toured in Nashville. We loved the tour!
    In 1849, after the death of her husband, the infamous slave trader Isaac Franklin who bequeathed his slave-trading fortune to her, the extremely wealthy widow Adelicia (Hayes) Franklin married Joseph Alexander Smith Acklen, a young attorney from Alabama. They built Belmont Mansion, also known as Acklen Hall, and originally known as Belle Monte, Belle Mont or Belmont to serve as the center of their summer estate in what was then country outside the city, and featured elaborate gardens and a zoo. It was completed by 1853 as an Italian villa-style summer home. They lived the rest of the year on one of her seven Louisiana cotton slave plantations, which totaled 8,600 acres.
    Today the mansion is owned by the Belmont Mansion Association and Belmont University and is operated and preserved by the Belmont Mansion Association. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.
    Parking was free but vehicles had to be registered. I did this online the evening before but one could also do so at the door. You will need to know your license plate number.

    Wow. Was an unexpected find in Nashville but well worth the $10 entrance fee to look around the inside art exhibition and the magnificent statue

    We went for a Nashville Predators game. The arena is well kept and very clean. The staff was very helpful and everywhere.

    Our final stop in Nashville was at the Tennessee State Museum. Admission to the museum was free, as was parking. What a great deal!
    The new Tennessee State Museum opened in October 2018 at the corner of Rosa Parks Boulevard and Jefferson Street at the foot of Capitol Hill by the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. 137,000-square-foot facility is one of the largest in the nation. The museum itself filled the second floor of the building with the ground floor being used for offices.
    This is such a wonderful place in which to learn about the history and culture of Tennessee (and Nashville).

    Adam was wonderful, in a busy setting he still gave me solid info on spirits without having a sales pitch. I was never into whiskey but he informed me on their free sampling and helped me find an excellent bottle while being charismatic. Making sure I come back on my next trip.
