Best Nashville Tourists Stops

Visiting Nashville for the first time? Check out this list of must sees! #SeekerChallenge

  • Music Row | Nashville in Tennessee, United States

    • 40andfree

      Check out where the recording studios are, take a stop in some bars (my personal fav- Tin Roof), and make sure to see, as the locals call it ‘The Famous Naked Lady statue’.

  • Cheekwood in Tennessee, United States

    • 40andfree

      Beautiful place! Tour the mansion and walk the grounds. Through 2020, Chihuly has been on exhibit with his beautiful huge glass sculptures that light up at nighttime. Local tip- go to the beginning of the nighttime exhibit at 5:00PM and you can experience the day and night of his beautiful artwork. After this exhibit is gone, there will no doubt be another installation artist that will sweep you off your feet!

  • Ryman Auditorium in Tennessee, United States

    • 40andfree

      Another good ole Nashville legend... Check out their concert schedule and experience the country music from the down home roots!

  • Centennial Park in Tennessee, United States

    • 40andfree

      A beautiful walk in the park... tons of statues and artwork, planes, and even a train to look at! Bring some bread to feed the ducks and make sure to tour the Parthenon where you can see Athena, a 41 foot tall impressive statue, the tallest in the western world! If you go at certain times of the year, you also may be able to hit a craft show or festival on the grounds.

  • Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Tennessee, United States

      Want the history of Country Music USA? Well here ya go!

  • Opryland Hotel in Tennessee, United States

    • 40andfree

      Beautiful indoor gardens, gondola rides through a canal in the courtyard, seasonal Christmas lights galore... It’s fun to stay there, but you can also just go for a walk through the hotel. Local hint- park at Opry Mills and take the sidewalk over to avoid a hefty hotel parking fee if you aren’t staying there.

  • Opry Mills in Tennessee, United States

    • 40andfree

      As sad as it was for Nashville to tear down our only amusement park, Opryland, for a new mall, Opry Mills, it certainly has become a hot spot of Nashville! Opry Mills is filled with all the trendiest stores, outlet style. You can also find an imax theater and wax museum as well as family friendly restaurants such as the Rainforest Cafe and Chuy’s with lots more to do. Definitely worth stopping in!

  • Grand Ole Opry in Tennessee, United States

      Back to the roots of Nashville’s original music... The Grand Ole Opry!

  • Bridgestone Arena in Tennessee, United States

    • 40andfree

      Let’s go Preds!! Go see the Nashville Predators or look up Bridgestone’s schedule for the upcoming concerts and events. The arena is right on Broad, so make sure to hit the Honky Tonks afterwards!

  • Frist Art Museum in Tennessee, United States

    • 40andfree

      I love this place so much, I have a membership! Beautiful exhibits travel through this museum from Impressionistic masters to illustrator Eric Carle and everything in between. Go to their website to find out their current exhibits. Kids under 18 are free and the upstairs has an Art Quest area where they can create artwork related to the current exhibit theme, so there’s something for all ages! A must see!
