Walk in the footsteps of Johnny Cash - Nashville is synonymous with this legendary musician, and a trip is not complete without a visit to The Johnny Cash Museum & Café.
Catch a show - The stages of Nashville are never vacant, with a string of talented performers ready to grace them every night. You could visit a theatre every single evening and not see the same show twice.
Pretend you are in Ancient Greece - Many of the buildings found in Nashville borrow heavily from Greece. One of the most notable examples is The Parthenon – an exact replica of the one found in Athens.

Nashville converted me into a country music fan from the moment I stepped into my first Honky Tonk on Broadway. You can see/hear right away why Nashville has earned its proud title of “Music City”. Honky Tonk Central, Tootsies & Legend's Corner is not to be missed as the live acts are often on the edge of a record deal, you'll be blown away by the talent, as well as the musicians playing a country version of your favourite tune! We weren't short of things to see and do in Nashville; from the Grand Ole Opry to spotting Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton in the Country Music Hall of Fame, taking a walk down Music Row where the record deals are in the making to cheering on the Tennessee Titans at an NFL game. We made sure we enjoyed the city at the pace of the locals - laid back, not in a hurry & with a beer in our hand. Nashville is one of those places where the life and soul of the city will stay with you forever, especially with your new appreciation for country music!
