Nashville Holidays

Detroit gave the world Motown. New York gave us disco and Seattle, garage rock. But before any of these global music exports played a note, there was country music. And its home? Nashville Tennessee. The musical landscape of America would take a lifetime to explore, but there’s no better place to start than Music City USA.

Great reasons to visit Nashville

Country Music – Nashville is synonymous with country, so for fans of the genre a holiday here to pay homage to its heroes, from Hank Williams to Dolly Parton, is an absolute bucket list necessity.

Soul food – Tuck into authentic ‘hot’ fish, ‘hot’ chicken, BBQ and meat-and-three restaurants where diners choose a meat dish (such as meatloaf or country ham) and three sides (think mac & cheese, potatoes, lima beans and more). Delicious.

River views – The mighty Cumberland River snakes through downtown Nashville creating a beautiful riverside atmosphere as a fitting accompaniment to the legendary music.

Wonderful weather – Despite its subtropical location, and unlike some of America’s warmer areas such as California and Arizona, Nashville does enjoy seasonal changes to its annual weather, with hot, balmy summers and cold, cosy winters during which snow is common. Average summertime highs are 30 – 31 centigrade.

Things to do on holiday in Nashville

For those visitors who aren’t country fans, why not get tickets for the Tennessee Performing Arts Centre? It’s home to the Tennessee Rep, the Music City Drum & Bugle Corps, Nashville Opera and the Nashville Ballet, so finding a show you love will be easy.

But for those on a country music pilgrimage, you really are spoilt for choice. The Johnny Cash Museum, Ryman Auditorium, Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum and Belcourt Theatre are all iconic, must-visit attractions. Head east of downtown to find the Grand Ole Opry House where the Grand Ole Opry still plays every week.

Music scene aficionados will find lots of great honky tonk bars and clubs in downtown Nashville, especially around the Second Avenue, Lower Broadway and Printer's Alley neighbourhoods, otherwise known as ‘the District’.

Take to the water and get a new perspective on the city on one of plenty of Cumberland River cruise options. The most famous being the General Jackson Showboat lunch or dinner cruise; a rite of passage for any Nashville newbie.
