Known as the capital of country music, the thriving city of Nashville combines old-world southern charm with a progressive urban flair.
Get some historical perspective at Andrew Jackson's Hermitage and St. Paul's Episcopal Church. Step out of the city life by going to Mammoth Cave and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Change things up with these side-trips from Nashville: Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Mammoth Cave National Park) and Carter House (in Franklin). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, get engrossed in the history at The Johnny Cash Museum & Cafe, witness the site of a historic battle at Lotz House Museum, and contemplate the long history of Belle Meade Plantation.
