What to see in Nashville

Nashville Attractions

Nashville is well-known as the Country Music Capital of the World, so it's no surprise that many of its most popular attractions are music-related.

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is a great place to learn about the history of the beloved genre, while the Grand Ole Opry, and Ryman Auditorium offer the opportunity to catch popular acts in equally-famous settings. The General Jackson Showboat also offers dinner enterainment on a historic 300-foot (91m) paddleboat.

Nashville offers more than country music however, and visitors can learn about the city's long and proud history at the Tennessee State Museum and the Belle Meade Plantation.

Nashville has plenty of pretty outdoor spaces, including Centennial Park (home to Nashville's famous Parthenon) and Radnor Lake, as well as seven golf courses. Children will enjoy the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, and the Adventure Science Center.
