Are you local to Nashville, TN or surrounding areas? If so, what are you planning on doing this summer? If you plan on visiting the Nashville area, there are a TON of fun activities you can do while you are there! One of the best spots in Nashville is the Ryman Auditorium. This is one of the biggest music hot spots in Nashville. Tons of County Music stars have shows here. You can also tour the auditorium and see all of the awesome “behind the scenes” stuff! I have a friend who is local to Nashville and one of her favorite spots is the Parthenon. You can take a tour of the Parthenon (the only full-sized replica of the Parthenon in Greece) and see all of the different statues inside, including the 42’ high Athena statue! It is truly a wonderful sight and something you do not see often. Make sure you stop by the gift shop as well!
If you are interested in old homes and plantations, check out Andrew Jackson’s The Hermitage. This is a huge piece of history that you do not want to skip out on if you do not have to. Take a tour of his plantation and learn about the history and see how he lived and what they did back in the day. My friend went around Halloween where everyone was handing out candy and they had hayrides, crafts, food and more!
If you are an art lover, The Frist Center is another place you will want to check out. It is one of the best art museums you will ever come across. Not only does it have a ton of different types of art, there is also a children’s center where the kids can do all sorts of crafts and learn a ton of information on art.
