Things to Do and Places to See When Taking a Trip Down to Nashville

Have you ever been to Nashville? If you have not, then you should consider it. If you’ve never been to the South, then what are you waiting for! Nashville is an incredible city and one of the most fun places to visit south of the Mason Dixon line.

The list of reasons to visit Nashville is extensive, but the following are some of the best reasons to make a trip to Music City.

Do you like to eat breakfast? Chances are, you do and if you do, then there is no better breakfast to be had in the United States of America than at Loveless Motel in Nashville. It is a little bit of a trek from the main part of the city, about a 25 minute drive outside of the city, but the drive is scenic and the food is that good. The place is well known for their biscuits and fried chicken and is the best brunch I’ve ever had.

Sorry just some more thoughts on the Loveless biscuits. They are worth the trip to Nashville alone. Ok, maybe not, but they are the best biscuits that I’ve ever had, and every one of my southern friends agrees. That’s got to count for something.

If pancakes are your thing, then Pancake Pantry is another great breakfast option. The sweet potato pancakes are incredible, as is everything else on the menu. The place is well known for long waits, so bring a newspaper to help the time pass. It is worth the wait.

Downtown Nashville is unlike any other city. The bright lights, country music, karaoke music help create a unique atmosphere. If you find yourself in downtown Nashville, be sure to visit Printer’s Alley, an off the beaten path alley with great bars. The Hard Rock CafĂ© is also located downtown and is situated right along the Cumberland River.

Nashville may be best known for the Grand Ole Opry. The unofficial home of country music, the Grand Ole Opry is a legendary venue that every country great has visited. If you are in town and love (or hate) country music, it should be at the top of your to-do list.

Vanderbilt University is another selling point of Nashville. The campus is a ten minute drive from downtown Nashville and is a beautiful area. If you are into nature or trees, another selling point is that Vanderbilt is a national arboretum.
