Adventure Science Center

Adventure Science Center If you are between the ages of 12 and 30, then you may have seen the few Simpsons episodes where they rip-off the exhibits in this activity centre. There are things such as the people flying on springs, the human body exhibit and the planetarium where all inspirations for snippets of Simpsons episodes over the years. It is one of the more exciting things to do in Nashville. It is certainly something you are going to want to try at least once in your life (even Homer liked it). Take the kids so that they can play on some of the smaller attractions, plus it will wipe them out so you can have a quiet evening.


The Parthenon

The Parthenon Nashville’s Parthenon was constructed as a copy of the real one in Athens, though most of the younger generation will recognize it from its appearance in the “Civilization” computer games. It is worth going simply to get a look at this exceptional building, as it is one of the top places to visit in Nashville. The fact it also has a museum and art collection inside is just a bonus.


Ryman Auditorium

Ryman Auditorium This is an auditorium that you should Google just before your trip to Nashville. It is a historic building in its own right, but every now and again, you will find some big stars doing concerts. Google it beforehand to see if any of your favorites are making a stop off at the Ryman Auditorium. It is also open every day for self-guided tours.


Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Museum of Art

Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Museum of Art A full 55-acre of gardens and sculptures awaits you at one of the top attractions of Nashville. The downtown noise and crowding can be avoided in this sanctuary from the world. The great thing is that no matter how busy it is, you can still find big stretches of area all to yourself. They also have 19th- and 20th-century American antiques and art.


Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum If you are off on vacation to Nashville then you are probably already aware of its musical heritage. Here you can see a snippet of it in a condensed form and space. There are lots of exhibits with the most notable one being Elvis Presley’s solid gold Cadillac.


Belmont Mansion

Belmont Mansion This is the largest house museum in Nashville and dates back to 1850. It is a 10,000-square-foot mansion that is littered with 19th century antiques and very lavish art. It is very good if you are interested in historic restoration.


The Hermitage

The Hermitage In 1821, The Hermitage was built for President Andrew Jackson. There is the original log cabin, his tomb, the church, kitchen and main house. It is certainly somewhere to take the kids in order to show them that your history is more than just wars and immigration. Show them under the skin of olde America by taking them to see a slice of it.


Grand Ole Opry

Grand Ole Opry Nashville is the Country Music capital of America, and one of the most iconic and enduring attractions of Nashville is the Grand ole Opry. You have to try to catch a show whilst you are visiting. You will be surprised by just how many big name stars appear on the stage.


Belle Meade Plantation

Belle Meade Plantation Visit this plantation and you will feel eerily close to the Evergreen Plantation in Wallace, Louisiana that was featured in the movie Django Unchained. To forget America’s checkered past is to do the founders of the country a disservice. But, even with the historic demerits attached to this plantation, you still have to stand in awe at its beauty, significance and standing. There are even bullet holes still visible in the house from the civil war.

I think all visitors would enjoy the attractions of Nashville – the musical associations are a bonus! Agreed?
