For those who think Nashville is only about country music - think again. Located in the centre of the state, Nashville is one of the largest cities in the South. A wealth of museums, the arts and professional sports call the city home. But country music remains the city's claim to fame and visitors from all over the world flock here for just that reason.
Downtown Nashville and the area known as "the District" can easily be toured on foot. Country Music Hall of Fame occupies an entire block of the downtown and includes items such as Minnie Pearl's hat and an Elvis Presley Cadillac. The District offers shops, restaurants and clubs including Wildhorse Saloon and Printer's Alley.
Music Valley is home to the Grand Ole Opry; shows are on Friday and Saturday nights with additional shows Tuesday, March - December and Wednesday, June - August. Music Valley is also home to the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center and the Opry Mills Mall.
Nashville boasts the Johnny Cash Museum, George Jones Museum and the Musicians Hall of Fame & Museum. The Parthenon is the world's only full scale replica of the Parthenon in Greece and houses art galleries and a statue of Athena - the tallest indoor statue in the Western Hemisphere! Nashville is 215 miles east of Memphis and can easily be combined in a twin center holiday.
