Nashville (Music City) appears to have it all. There is live music almost every hour of the day, entertaining places to hang out and relax, and a rich history dating back to the founding of the United States. Don’t forget about the food. There are several tasty dishes to choose from. We’ve spent a lot of time in some fascinating places in Nashville, Tennessee, learning about the finest places to visit and things to do.
The Hermitage Hotel is a Must-See
The Hermitage Hotel in Nashville is a great place to stay. The almost century-old hotel has hosted a wide range of notables in its well-appointed rooms. The Hermitage Hotel’s bathroom is one of the most unique reasons to come. The Art Deco men’s restroom outside the hotel lobby has been named the best in America. The large toilet has bright green and black glass tiles and green fixtures. If you’re feeling lazy, you may relax at the two-seat shoe polishing station. Women using the bathroom are becoming widely accepted. There are more. This is one of the best free things to do in Nashville.
Gaylord Opryland is a Great Place to Visit
The Gaylord Opryland is akin to a city within a city. With over 15 restaurants and bars, 2800 rooms, and a plethora of shops and other amenities, I’m sorry to admit how many times we got lost here during our visit. This is the adventure for you if you want an easy-to-manage adventure with everything you need in one place. Take a boat ride around the hotel, listen to a radio broadcast at the on-site studio, or visit Soundwaves, a water park where you may slide, swim or float down the lazy river. There are so many things to do here that it’s ridiculous.
Get a Taste of Culture at the 21c Museum Hotel
In rare cases, high-end hotels will have an artwork by famous painters on display. But a hotel museum is rare. At the 21c Museum Hotel, you can find some sculptures and excellent portrait pictures when you enter. There is a lady clutching the puma skin rug was near the check-in counter. These and other types of exhibits rotate daily in public galleries. There are twice weekly docent-led tours. Enjoy a unique experience.
Take a Look at the Country Music Hall of Fame
The Country Music Hall of Fame is definitely one of the best things to do in Nashville, regardless of whether you like country music or not. It is one of the world’s largest museums, including 2.5 million artifacts such as records, pictures, instruments, and more. Cowboy boots and apparel come in an incredible array of styles and colors. Elvis’ “Solid Gold” Cadillac is embellished with shattered diamonds and fish scales. The Country Music Hall of Fame honors the history of country music while also concentrating on contemporary artists. While the collection is permanent, the exhibits do.
The Johnny Cash Museum is Worth a Visit
In short, the Johnny Cash Museum is all about the country legend’s life and songs. This little part has a retrospective of Cash’s songs, as well as costumes, instruments, photos, and handwritten lyrics. His high school yearbook and marriage certificate with June Carter Cash is on display. Notable objects include a stone wall from Cash’s home before it burned down. At $22, the Johnny Cash Museum may be best reserved for Cash’s most devoted fans. Close by is Johnny Cash’s Kitchen & Saloon. On each of the restaurant’s two levels, you may eat meatloaf and mashed potatoes while drinking whiskey and listening to live music.
