Located in the southern state of Tennessee, Nashville is known as "The Country Music Capital of the World", and provides an endless array of entertainment opportunities for visitors and locals, alike. Many visitors to Nashville come specifically for the deep music culture and history of the city. Drive down Music Row, home to hundreds of businesses in the music industry. Here you can find record labels and studios, music stores, radio stations and all other kinds of businesses involved in the industry, with a focus on country music and Christian gospel. In the evening, hit Broadway Street- the centre point of Nashville's nightlife. You'll also find the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, as well as The Music Valley Wax Museum, which includes over 50 wax statues of famous musicians in the outfits they wore on stage. To learn about the history of this city and state, check out the Tennessee State Museum, filled with displays and artefacts from the state's early days. Then drive out to Fort Negley Park, which holds a reconstructed fort that played an important role in defending the city. Nashville was a crucial location in the American Civil War, and was therefore heavily fortified and defended.
While in Nashville, drive to the Bicentennial Mall, located just near the city centre. This large state park holds many attractions including fountains, a giant map of the state and a display showing the history of the region from prehistoric times until modern day. Also, be sure to visit the Grand Ole Opry, just 20 minutes outside of the city centre. This venue is considered an American icon, and is among the most highly esteemed locations in country music, frequently hosting the biggest names in this genre. See a show at this historic venue before taking a tour backstage!
For other destinations in Tennessee, make a visit to Memphis, known for blues music and barbeque, and spend some time on the famous Beale Street. For incredible panoramas of this region, spend a night in Knoxville and drive through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, about 3 hours from Nashville.
