Whether you're a visitor planning an upcoming trip or a Nashville native, there are several spots worth exploring (even revisiting) and checking off your must-see list. We've compiled a list of our top destinations we gladly recommend and visit ourselves.
Ryman Auditorium - 125 years of rich history belong to this beautiful concert hall. It's nicknamed the "Mother Church of Country Music" as it was once used as a place of worship, and then became the original venue for the Grand Ole Opry radio program. Daily tours are offered in addition to a calendar full of star-studded performances. You can even grab a bite to eat at Cafe Lula before or after a performance at this legendary hall.
Parthenon - Nashville's premier urban park, Centennial Park, hosts a full-scale replica of the original Grecian Parthenon. The Parthenon houses an impressive art museum along with its centerpiece, a 42 foot statue re-creation of Athena.
Loveless Cafe - Venture out on Highway 100 to enjoy some made-from-scratch Southern food. Established in the 1950s, this charming restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner (indulge in the complimentary biscuits served all day long). Loveless Cafe also offers an impressive retail area to grab souvenirs, hams, jams and baked goods to take home.
Cumberland River Pedestrian Bridge - The Cumberland River walking bridge leads visitors from East Nashville to Downtown while passing over the Cumberland River. It's a great spot to take pictures of Nashville's gorgeous skyline, people watch, and take in a lovely sunset.
Radnor Lake - Radnor Lake is an ideal spot for nature enthusiasts. Plan a hike, pack a picnic and prepare to observe all sorts of abundant wildlife at this scenic spot in Nashville.
The Bluebird Cafe - The Bluebird Cafe has been a music industry staple for musicians and songwriters for several decades now. With just 90 seats, this venue has an intimate vibe allowing patrons to enjoy talented musicians in a smaller atmosphere. Catch a show at The Bluebird Cafe and you'll see why Nashville is nicknamed the Music City.
Nashville has so much to offer year-round. Great dining, fun entertainment, gorgeous views...you really can't go wrong in this city.
