Things to Do In Nashville...

The iconic city of Nashville just seems to have everything going for it, right? It has a night scene out of this world, a music industry for aspiring hopefuls to make it big, fun events and activities for the entire family, and a historical background that reaches as far back to the early days of America!

To truly get a feel of Nashville and all it has to offer, it really takes more than a weekend visit. One thing that will help you decide how to get the most out of Nashville is to figure out what’s bringing you to Nashville. For instance, if you’re coming down for a family trip and you have young children, then you’ll want to do family-friendly activities in Nashville like the Nashville Zoo or the Adventure Science Center. For a bachelor/bachelorette party, you’ll definitely want to do any and everything there is to do on Broadway, 2nd Ave, and Printers Alley!

Because Nashville is continuously growing and people are still visiting in flocks, that means that the Nashville events need to get bigger. In knowing that, several events and attractions have been added to “Music City’s” well-established roster of famous attractions. One of the biggest attractions that have been added is Madame Tussaud's Nashville, where it’s the ONLY Madame Tussaud's that is music themed, featuring only music artists.   

To add to that, you can shop your heart out at the Opry Mills Mall, cruise up the Cumberland River on the General Jackson, and taste different foods around the globe at the Farmer’s Market! Because Nashville is a big city with a small town feel to it, people who’ve never been to Nashville don’t look at it as one of the biggest tourist destinations in the world… and that’s where people are highly mistaken.

With the delicious food, trendy gathering spots, endless shopping, and live music at every turn, Nashville has something for everyone. From party-goers and extreme foodies to history buffs and aspiring singers, Nashville is not a city to sleep on. Nashville hosted the 2019 NFL Draft, which brought over 300,000 people to the city, not to mention, Nashville is THE location of the Country Music Awards as well! So, when planning your next family trip or a weekend getaway, come to Nashville to see the meaning of what it’s like to be in the heart and soul of  “Music City.”
