Nashville Things To Do
Whether you’re taking the family on a Nashville holiday or just seeking a thrill, the Soundwaves indoor and outdoor waterpark has something for everyone. Float down the lazy rivers and sip on cocktails from the bar. There’s even a giant television screen so you can watch movies while taking a dip. As evening turns into night, head to Broadway, an entertainment district. Lined with vibrant bars and honky-tonks that glow with neon lights, it’s the perfect place to spend an evening eating, drinking and listening to live music. Be sure to also stop by the Nashville Parthenon, an unusual but intriguing full-size replica of a Grecian structure that features sculptures cast from the original decorations on Athen's own Parthenon.
Nashville Food & Drink
Get your taste buds tingling with Nashville’s famous mouthwatering spicy wings. Doused in BBQ or extra hot sauce, it certainly isn’t for those who don’t like their food hot and fiery! Quench your thirst with the famous bourbon whiskey, whether that be with your favourite mixer, on the rocks or in an expertly crafted cocktail. The deep, smoky flavours of the South are prevalent here, and you'll enjoy discovering a new eatery each night. Combining fine dining and music at a venue such as the Back Alley Diner is an absolute must. Of course, the state of Tennessee is best known as the birthplace of Jack Daniels whiskey so be sure to sample some of this fine liquor and take a tour of the nearby distillery during your stay.
Nashville is well known for its lively country music scene. Get to know the history and traditions behind the genre at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, packed full of interactive exhibitions, costumes from famous stars and instruments behind some of the biggest country bands in the world. The Cumberland River that runs through the heart of Nashville also offers an array of sights on its waters. Book onto a steamboat ride that will allow you to enjoy the city from a new vantage point. Sightseeing tours are in plentiful supply throughout Nashville and are worth considering. Some even offer aerial, treetop treks that allow you to see over civil war battle sites.
