Known as the capital of country music, the thriving city of Nashville combines old-world southern charm with a progressive urban flair.
Lane Motor Museum and Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit Stones River National Battlefield and Belmont Mansion for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Nashville: McGavock Confederate Cemetery (in Franklin), President James K. Polk Home & Museum (in Columbia) and Rippavilla Plantation (in Spring Hill). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Frist Art Museum, examine the collection at Patsy Cline Museum, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and get engrossed in the history at Tennessee State Museum.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Nashville day trip planner.
