There’s more Nashville to explore! In Nashville Part 2, Stevie G. and Cameron shut down the dance floor and pop into some historic buildings. Perhaps most intriguing, Stevie avenges himself for the “L” he took in part 1.
Nashville Itinerary (Part 2 Podcast)
RCA Studio B Tour – Ever heard of the Nashville Sound? Visit RCA Studio B, the birthplace of the Nashville Sound. You’ll learn about many famous artists who recorded hits here including Dolly Parton, Charlie Pride, Conway Twitty and most notably The King, Elvis Pressley.
Country Music Hall of Fame – Continue learning about country music at the Country Music Hall of Fame. Take in all sorts of information from one of the many exhibits at this elaborate museum. Finish up your museum experience viewing the Hall of Fame rotunda, which features the names of those inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Bongo Java Coffee – For all my coffee peeps! Grab a wonderful cup of coffee at the Bongo Java Café, which is just a short walk from the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Wildhorse Saloon – Show up with an appetite and your boots. Enjoy some scrumptious southern food and take part in a line dancing lesson on their large dance floor afterwards.
Ryman Auditorium – Home of the Opry from 1943 to 1974, the Ryman Auditorium has been preserved as a historic music venue. In fact, it actually still hosts Opry shows in the months of November, December and January. Take a self-guided tour to learn more about the Ryman and it’s importance to the Country Music world.
Hard Rock Café – You’ve learned a lot about Country, why not take in some Rock n’ Roll? Chow down at the Hard Rock Café, a Rock and Roll themed eatery with a wide display of music memorabilia throughout the restaurant.
The Hermitage – Visit Andrew Jackson’s estate, the Hermitage, and get a unique view of Southern life in the 1800’s. I’d recommend taking the audio tour, where you can walk the extensive grounds and learn neat facts about the estate.
Farmer’s Market – You may have already dabbled in the Farmers Market, but go back! There are so many food options in the main market to try and stepping outdoors to buy some fresh produce is always refreshing!
Bi-Centennial Park– The Farmers Market sits on the edge of bi-centennial park, a large park with walkways and memorials.
Hot Chicken – If you still haven’t tasted hot chicken in Nashville, now is your chance! Pop on over to Hattie B’s or Princes and get you some. I can’t stress this enough – be ready for some heat. If you don’t handle spicy well, consider getting something mild.
Midtown – Want to have a night out on the town that isn’t quite as intense as Broadway? Midtown is the perfect place to have a good time in Music City. Check out Winners and Losers, or if your looking for something a little different head to The Kung Foo Saloon, a fun arcade bar with plenty of games.
