Known as the capital of country music, the thriving city of Nashville combines old-world southern charm with a progressive urban flair.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and The Johnny Cash Museum & Cafe. Head to Gallery 202 and Smith Creek Moonshinefor plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Franklin (David Arms Gallery & The Copper Fox Gallery). There's still lots to do: catch a live performance at Grand Ole Opry, take in the history at Lotz House Museum, see the interesting displays at RCA Studio B, and browse the different shops at Rare Bird Antique Mall.
