Known as Music City, U.S.A, Nashville is more than just a “drinking town with a music problem.” Of course, the music culture is alive and well. However, the city has a culinary scene to die for and historic sites to see. Grab your favorite pair of boots and head south to the country-music capital of the world.
If this is your first trip to Nashville, you must visit the Country Music Hall of Fame. The museum pays tribute to pioneer country musicians such as the Carter Family, Chet Atkins, and Kitty Wells, as well as to modern day artists like Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean and the Zac Brown Band. The museum is open daily from 9am-5pm. Tickets cost $24.95 for an adult general admission. Insider tip: although you may want to skip the gift shop in many places, don’t at the Hall of Fame. The Hatch Showprint store sells cool souvenirs, such as concert posters and art, that any music lover will adore.
