Favorite Destination: Nashville, Tennessee


Broadway St, Nashville downtown
Nashville wowed me on my first visit. Music clubs dot the streets of downtown Nashville, and the live entertainment is incredible, no matter your music preferences. The city rocks when it hosts the annual CMA Music Festival in June. Four days of concerts and events for country music fans to mingle with their idols and rising stars.

Stop for a drink at Legend's Corner to find out how some country stars got started. Wildhorse Saloon is another interesting place to check out; it's a dining and entertainment establishment, complete with a stage and a huge dance floor. I almost always eat here every time I visit Nashville, and have never been disappointed with the food. There's usually a band playing, and sometimes a line dancing class that you can participate in.  Check their website to make sure they're not closed for private parties or concerts. Other clubs include Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Honky Tonk Central, Bourbon Street Blues, and many more.

Another must-see place is the Gaylord Opryland Resort Hotel & Convention Center, about 15 minutes away. 50,000 (no kidding!) tropical plants in the beautifully landscaped indoor gardens will take your breath away. You can catch a show at the Grand Ole Opry or shop at the Opry Mills outlet, all within walking distances from each other.
