If you’re looking for a unique student, performance or homeschool trip, Nashville should be at the top of your list. History, science and (of course!) music are at the heart of this lively capital city
For a glimpse of southern living at its historical best, visit the Belmont Mansion, the largest house museum in Tennessee. Then step into the Hermitage, a jewel of the antebellum south and home of President Andrew Jackson. Backtrack just a bit further in time to The Parthenon, a full-sized replica of the Greek original built in 1897 for Tennessee’s Centennial Exposition.
For a more STEAM slant, be sure to stop at the Adventure Science Center, with interactive exhibits and award-winning programs guaranteed to inspire any budding scientist. Start by exploring the exquisite Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Museum for beautiful gardens and galleries. Then take in the Nashville Zoo, a 200-acre zoo and historic plantation farmhouse just outside of Nashville. There is much fun and so much to learn!
At its core, however, Nashville IS the Music City! The sights and sounds of country music are the essence and soul of this town. First up, The Ryman Auditorium, known as the Mother Church of Country Music, is a must-see. Take in a show or tour and you’ll feel the history of the place. Next visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum for a nitty gritty exploration of the roots of country music. After that sidestep over to the Wildhorse Saloon for outstanding grub AND line dancing lessons! However, you can’t visit Nashville without a backstage pass to the famed Grand Ole Opry– you never know who you’ll run into!
