Day 1 – Hop On/Hop Off Trolley, Assembly Food Hall, Ryman Auditorium Tour, Printers Alley

We set off on an early flight out of Boston so we could get in a full day of sightseeing.  We used our Hyatt Prive privileges to check-in early at our hotel The Dream Nashville.  After oohing and ahhing at our chic rooms we headed out for lunch at Assembly Food Hall on 5th!  With a variety of vendors offering everything from gourmet burgers to gourmet seafood, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. It was perfect for our large group as we could browse all the different food options and then meet up at a large table to share our meal.

Hop-on Hop-off Trolley Tour

After lunch we got on the hop-on-hop-off trolley to get the lay of the land.  I have been to Nashville many times, but for most of my fellow travelers it was their first visit so this was the perfect introduction for the first time travelers.  One of the stops was the Ryman Auditorium so we took advantage of the trolley’s discounted tickets and took the tour of the former home of the Grand Ole Opry.  Known as the “Mother Church of Country Music,” the Ryman Auditorium is a must-visit for music lovers. We took a tour of this historic venue and learned about its role in shaping the sound of Nashville.

Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great on our first day there so we chose to use our $100 per room hotel food & beverage credit to eat at our hotel’s restaurant the Stateside Kitchen.  Food and service here was top-notch and we were happy we didn’t have to venture out in the rain for dinner. After dinner we took advantage of our hotels great location and checked out Printers Alley for music and cocktails.

Printers Alley

Printers Alley has a rich history as the heart of Nashville’s nightlife. Originally a spot where men hitched their horses before heading to the courthouse, it later transformed into the hub of the city’s printing industry. By 1915, it was home to numerous publishers and printers, including the offices of The Tennessean and the Nashville Banner. Over the years, it evolved into a vibrant entertainment district with nightclubs showcasing talented performers like Boots Randolph, Chet Atkins, and Jimi Hendrix.  Today Printer’s Alley continues to grow as shops, bars, restaurants, and entertainment venues beckon to locals and tourists alike, offering a unique experience off the beaten path of Lower Broadway.

Day 2 – Embracing Nashville’s Music Heritage

On our first day trolley tour we spotted the Parthenon in Centennial Park and made a note to head back there on day 2! The Parthenon is the centerpiece of Centennial Park. It is an art museum and is the world’s only full-scale replica of ancient Greece’s iconic temple and its 42-foot Athena statue.  The museum details the history of the Parthenon and it’s role in the 1897 Centennial Exhibition in Nashville.  It also features the art work of American paintings from the Cowan Collection.

Next, we made our way to Opryland for lunch. This is a sprawling resort that offers a wide range of entertainment and food options. We explored the lush gardens, grabbed some lunch and took a boat ride!

In the afternoon, we head over to the Grand Ole Opry, the mecca of country music, to take a tour of this iconic venue. Here we immersed ourselves in the history and magic of the Opry, and got a glimpse behind the scenes and stepped in the dressing rooms. We got to sing Happy Birthday on stage (since this was our special birthday year trip).

After dinner across the street at the mall we went back to the Grand Ole Opry for the evening show headlining Vince Gill and others.  I had no idea that it is still a live radio show!

Day 3 – Exploring Music City’s Museums

The third day of our Nashville itinerary, we dove deeper into the city’s music history by visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame. We were able to explore the exhibits that pay homage to the legends of country music and learned about the genre’s evolution, and get a deeper understanding of Nashville’s role in shaping the music industry.  While I had been to this museum before they are frequently changing the exhibits so there always is something new to explore.

As part of our ticket to the HOF we added a tour of the historic RCA Studio B. We learned how this legendary recording studio has played a pivotal role in shaping the sound of country music. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history, and in particular Elvis Presley.  Seeing where Elvis recorded so many of his hit songs was definitely a highlight.

In the evening we embarked on a unique and fun-filled adventure on a Bike Bar tour. We hopped on a pedal-powered bar and explored Nashville’s neighborhoods and Broadway while enjoying drinks and music. This tour was a great way to soak in the city’s energetic atmosphere and sing your heart out to great tunes.  While you can purchase beer and seltzer at the bar you are also welcome to bring your own (check your tour operator for details and limitations).

Day 4 – Discovering Nashville’s Hidden Gems

On last day of our itinerary Nashville, we explored some of the city’s hidden gems that are off the beaten path. We started our day at Bicentennial Park, which is a sprawling green space that pays tribute to Tennessee’s rich history. We took a leisurely walk to admire the various monuments and sculptures.  Bicentennial Park definitely offers a peaceful respite from the bustling city and was the perfect place for us reflect and unwind.

For lunch, we headed over to a Broadway to find honky-tonk for lunch.  We stopped at Margaritaville for some acoustic music and fish tacos and then found Friends In Low Places for some more traditional Honky-Tonk and barbecue.  Lastly we found a great band at Ole Red to round up our broadway music tour.

In the evening, we made our way to the Station Inn for a unique and authentic Nashville experience. This is legendary bluegrass venue and has been hosting live performances since 1974. It has become a hub for musicians and music enthusiasts alike. On Sunday evenings at 7:00 they host a bluegrass jam session.  Musicians show up with their instruments and music enthusiasts clap and sing along.  They only serve pizza and beer but it was a perfect ending to our trip.  Get there early!  The show we went to was standing room only once the music started!
