Nashville Travel Guide: What Not to Miss in Music City, USA…
5. Fill-in-Your-Own-Music-Experience: There’s a little something musical for everyone here. Country fan? Head to the Country Music Hall of Fame. The Grand Ole Opry more your speed? Check. There’s a Johnny Cash museum‘, the historic Ryman Auditorium, and dozens upon dozens of live-music venues. Pick your poison and rock on.
4. Browse through Hatch Show Print: While getting your kitschy-Nashville-tourist-souvenir fix on Broadway in downtown Nashville, stop in to Hatch Show Print to see how old-school music posters were made (and maybe snag a one-of-a-kind souvenir to take home).
3. Eat tacos at Mas Tacos Por Favor: You haven’t lived until you’ve had a fried avocado taco at Mas Tacos Por Favor. That’s all I’m saying about that. (Find their food truck via Twitter or head to their permanent location just outside the city.)
Check out our visit to Mas Tacos, including the moment of supreme bliss: my first bite of a fried avocado taco…
2. Hang out in Hillsboro Village: The perfect place to kill time, hipster-friendly Hillsboro Village is home to great coffee shops (don’t leave before trying Fido, where in addition to great coffee, you can order up tasty organic, local food), as well as funky shops and browse-worthy bookstores.
1. See the Parthenon: Okay, not that Parthenon–but Nashville’s version is pretty darn cool too. In Centennial Park, the replica Parthenon was first built for the 1897 Tennessee Centennial Exposition and boasts an impressive 42-foot-tall statue of Athena, goddess of wisdom.
