Nashville Attractions

Nashville Attractions offer a wide range of choice for visitors and locals alike. From local music talent showcases to a top-notch zoo, there’s plenty to check out.

Nothing beats the Grand Ole Opry
When it comes to Nashville Attractions, the first thing that usually comes to mind is the Grand Ole Opry. Nashville is commonly referred to as “Music City USA,” and the Grand Ole Opry has over 75 years of music history behind it. Some of the best-known country music legends like Patsy Cline and Hank Williams performed in their heyday. The dark oak and well-worn six foot circle that graces the Grand Ole Opry's current stage has been actually cut from the original stage of the famous Ryman Auditorium. Also, when you watch a show there, you'll be watching a live radio broadcast as well. So in terms of true Nashville attractions, this one is a must.

The Nashville Zoo
Looking for something that everyone from all ages can enjoy by way of Nashville attractions? Then make your way to the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere. Here you'll literally find a world of excitement. On top of the usual fare of strange and exotic animals to see, you can also take advantage of the Zoo's Wild Animal Carousel, in which the young ones can ride a giraffe, a giant anteater or even a cheetah on the zoo's carousel.

In addition to checking out all the animals up close and personal, there's even a Jungle Gym. Perhaps one of the biggest in the U.S., the 66,000 square foot jungle gym is a great place for kids to let off some steam. When it comes to Nashville attractions, this one is pretty unique.

A southern style plantation
If you're in the mood for something more indigenous by way of original Nashville attractions, then you might want to make the six-mile journey westward from Nashville to the “Belle Meade Plantation.” This is a 30-acre historic site that was once the site of a huge 5400 acre plantation. It was also once known as a thoroughbred nursery famous for breeding and training some of the most well known championship racehorses. Former Kentucky Derby winners like Barbaro, Funny Clide and Secretariat can trace their bloodlines back to the breeding stock at Belle Meade. This makes for a one-of-a-kind experience by way of Nashville attractions.

An old-fashioned riverboat ride
Find out what life living along the Cumberland River might have been like long ago by taking an old-fashioned riverboat ride. Tip: If you'd like your river cruise with good music and entertainment, try the “General Jackson Dinner Cruise And Show.” Here you'll get a sit down dinner and a stand up show, all while cruising aboard the largest showboat in the world.

Nightlife to boot!
With its huge nightclub scene, there’s no shortage of Nashville attractions during the evening hours. If you're in the mood for dancing and drinks why not check out “Fuse,” one of Nashville's trendiest nightclubs. The sultry red and black décor, exotic Zebra Room and extreme sound system will keep you in party mode all night long.
