Two Days in Nashville | Travel Diary

Nashville Travel Diary

The first week of August, my family and I took a road trip to Tennessee. Although we visited St. Louis, Missouri, Pigeon Forge, and Memphis, Tennessee, I wanted to focus on our couple days in Nashville. Nashville is a very fun place to visit, so if you ever get the chance I can’t recommend it enough. I really want to go back once I’m older as well to get in more of the city!

Day One

We drove from Pigeon Forge to Nashville, so we only had the night to do something. This was the night that we bought tickets for the Grand Ole Opry. The performances included: Bill Anderson, Michael Ray, Jeannie Seely, Easton Corbin, Will Hoge, Luke Combs, and The Oak Ridge Boys. A few artists I had no idea what music they were and a few where I loved their songs! It was a great night just to listen to some good country music in such a gorgeous place. Even if it Breaks Your Heart by Will Hoge and Hurricane by Luke Combs were probably the best performances!

Day Two

This was our only full day we spent in Nashville, so we had many sights to see in a days time. We started out the day exploring downtown Nashville. My parents wanted to go to Antique Archeology because they are big fans of the American Pickers. This was a cool antique shop in a unique part of downtown. We did a little shopping down here, and I was able to find a really nice Nashville shirt! This was also where my sister and I found the I Believe in Nashville mural to take a picture in front of!

Country Music Hall of Fame

Another very cool place to visit in Nashville. This is a museum which all the history of country music. I really loved the Shania Twain exhibit and of course anything to do with Taylor Swift! It was very interesting to learn about the history and get the explore the museum. If you are going to visit give yourself at least two hours to get through all of the museum, as there is a lot to see.

Centennial Park & The Parthenon

This was one of the places that I really wanted to visit in Nashville. Although we went in the late afternoon when it was closed, it was still really cool to see the outside of the building. The Parthenon is located right in the middle of Centennial Park, so it’s very convenient to get to. The park was even having live music and just had other cool places to visit. I recommend spending some time here to really get the feel of Nashville!

That’s we spent two days in Nashville! We didn’t get to experience too much of the food, we visited this really cool restaurant that I did not write down the name of and then just some chain restaurants for convenience. Next time I want to experience the real food! After these days in Nashville, we headed to Memphis, TN  for a day to tour Elvis’ house and then headed back home!
