Default Nashville Tennessee

Never been to Nashville and thinking about taking the wife and kids up. Any suggestions or must-do's would be appreciated. Know we want to do the Grand Ol Opry but haven't picked a hotel or any of that. Need some guidance. Thanks.

We went a couple of years ago. We stayed at Opryland and took their shuttle down town. Didn't have kids with us so I can't help you with entertaining them but you and Mrs ooooops would have a blast hitting up the Honkey Tonks listening to music.

That's the only drawback... Kids are really into music but there won't be much Honkey Tonkin goin on.

Broad, is touristy, but there are some good honk tonks, down there. Tootsie's Orchid Lounge on Broadway, is famous. Great hotels and restaurants downtown too. Try the Wild Horse Saloon. The WW is less than an hour away depending on traffic. I know the back roads and can go from here to downtown Nashville without ever getting on Interstate. Just give me a call when you get here and we will meet up somewhere.

take them to the Wild Horse early. They have line dancing class for them.

Don't miss CDB's place downtown. Sometimes you can even catch Charlie down there.

We also took a trip on the riverboat with the dinner and entertainment. It was worth it to me

if they are doing the Opry at the Ryman, be sure not to miss that.

They only do it during the winter months. We last saw Ricky Scaggs and the Whites do a Christmas show there.

The Gulch is a Section of Nashville, just SW of the City.

Maybe you can dump the kids off at Kydawg’s crib one night and you and the Mrs go have some kid less fun. I’m sure he won’t mind

I lived there for awhile. Broad is fun to just walk around and look. Probably could hit some places early and let the kids see some of it. Tootsie's and The Stage are famous watering holes. It's a fun town with a vast array of things to do.

If you can catch some type of show at the Ryman downtown try to do it. Great place and I've seen concerts about as different as you can get; Dan Fogelburg and Grand Funk to name a couple (yes, that Grand Funk)

While it may seem odd, the huge Opryland Hotel is a tourist destination all on it's own and you can see some of it from a nice boat ride through the canal that winds through the inside of the hotel.

Not sure age of your kids, but we went last year when ours were 8 and 5. Not much to see on Broad Street with young kids other than the typical touristy shops, etc.. You could pop in a honky tonk for some food, they might like that, but my kids weren't all that crazy about the music scene and they didn't understand the nostalgia. We also walked down to the river and then the Titans stadium, they enjoyed that. We did the Opry and Ryman, my kids were bored out of their mind for that, but my wife and I enjoyed it. Everyone like the Parthenon.

Frankly, the vibe I got from Nashville was that it wasn't a good vacation spot for young families, but it would definitely be a fun weekend out for you and your wife.

Check out the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. Decorated up for Christmas. You can park at the Opry Mills Mall for free and walk over. Real nice!
