Road Trip, Day Two

Back to Music City!

So you're going to Nashville--what do you see???

Once I decided to go, I needed to figure out what to do or see. Thank goodness for Google. After a few searches, I had all kinds of things to choose from. Of course, Nashville is the country music capital of the world, so no trip would be complete without a pass down Music Row or past the Ryman Auditorium or the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

I'd definitely decided on a self-guided walking tour, complete with a map and pictures and descriptions of the things I was supposed to see. A trip to the zoo was also a possibility, but I didn't want to schedule every minute of every day either just because I'd be exhausted and I don't really roll that way. DH goes there quarterly, so I can go back at some point.

And when we drove DH to the conference the first day, thank goodness we took the back road, because I saw some gorgeous homes and architecture (I'm a architecture nerd even though I know nothing about it.) *and* I discovered the Belle Meade Plantation was right up the road and open daily for tours. A live plantation?? Right up my alley. As for the zoo...well, an elephant is an elephant is elephant, right? But maybe. I still had time to fill.

Here are a few highlights from my walking tour. All my pictures can be found on my Shutterfly account, if you're so inclined.

 Above and below: the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Below: the guitar in front of the Hard Rock Cafe at the corner of Broadway and First Streets.

Below: the entrance to Printers Alley.

The Wildhorse Saloon

The Ryman Auditorium--home of the Grand Ol' Opry until 1974. Some say its acoustics rival Carnegie Hall.

The Tennessee capitol building.

Hope you'll come back on Friday for day three of my trip and more pictures!
