"Nashville is the capital of the U.S. state of Tennessee. Legendary country music venues include the Grand Ole Opry House, home of the famous “Grand Ole Opry” stage and radio show, in Music Valley. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and historic Ryman Auditorium are Downtown, as is the District, packed with legendary honky-tonks, dive bars and dance halls".We saw pretty much all this and more during our stay.
Because of the number of photos we took, we had to break down the trip into several posts. This first post covers the city tour that we took on an open air bus operated by Gray Line Tours. It was a great way to cover the entire city with commentary as we drove. We then went back to spend more time in certain places of interest like the Ryman Theater, the Country Music Hall of Fame, Music Row, and the Parthenon. Post on all these special places will follow later.
Downtown Nashville is a rich mix of old and new. The growth of Nashville's population and business' has been explosive in recent decades and the growth continues.
