Last month my husband and I took a trip to horse and bourbon country in Kentucky, a place we’d never been before. Then, since we were only one state over, we visited Tennessee, including Nashville!
I thought you might enjoy some of what we saw there.
We drove by Vanderbilt University, which was gorgeous, but no pictures to share. Sorry.
How about Music Row?
Country Music Museum:I took loads of pictures here, but not enough room to share all of them.
Ryman Auditorium (formerly Grand Ole Opry House and Union Gospel Tabernacle) is a 2,362-seat live performance venue, located at 116 5th Avenue North, in Nashville, Tennessee and is best known as the home of the Grand Ole Opry from 1943 to 1974.
Riverboat ride on Cumberland River – with outstanding entertainment!
View at night from pedestrian bridge over Cumberland River, which takes you to the Nissan Stadium. We enjoyed our walk there.
Here is a better view of the pedestrian bridges. (below)
The New Grand Ole Opry after the devastating 2010 Cumberland River floods:
The Opry returned to the Grand Ole Opry House on September 28, 2010 in a special edition of the Opry entitled Country Comes Home that was televised live on Great American Country.
We saw four, half-hour shows recorded on a Friday night. Really something!
We also visited The Hermitage – home of Andrew Jackson
Tennessee State buildings –
We had a wonderful time walking around the state houses and legislative center.
I’ll never forget Nashville!
Until next time, make it a great one!
