The image above of Nashville was taken while travelling on the Cumberland River on the General Jackson Showboat. Not only do you get a great meal and a good show on the showboat, but an obviously lovely view of the city skyline as well.

There was a time when downtown Nashville was booming and busy with tourists and shoppers. There were great stores like Cain Sloans, Caster Knotts and Harveys that kept the people coming. Somehow the stores started to close and it became like a ghost town. A sad sight for those who grew up in Nashville and remember how it used to be downtown. A few places remained and some new ones have been added but it seems to have never regained the attractiveness it had before the 90’s. The image shows downtown Nashville with the Ryman Auditorium and the “Bat Tower”.

Nashville is not known as “Music City, U.S.A.” without a reason. Downtown Nashville is the place to go to catch the country music scene... and other types of music as well. Many locations and clubs can be found on the 2nd Avenue as well as a few souvenir shops. Probably one of the most famous country music locations on this street is the Wildhorse Saloon.

The Ryman Auditorium, the home of the Original Grand Ol’ Opry was the beginning platform for many stars. Here they found their beginnings at this concert hall. Daily tours are offered and evening shows can still be enjoyed at this historical place.

A cruise on the General Jackson Showboat is well recommended. Live music can also be enjoyed with dinner and the cruise takes you down the Cumberland River in the direction of Nashville to observe the skyline in the dusk hours. This is a great opportunity to take pictures of the skyline from a different point of view.

What a funny name for a dining location. This location served southern style comfort food in a most unique way.

The Gaylord Opryland Hotel is not only luxurious, but also very impressive. This hotel is an attraction in itself and a highlight of Nashville. Once in the hotel, you dive into a tropical landscape of waterfalls and fountains and eat or drink at one of the several locations there. It feels like a typical warm summer’s day in the south due to the tropical atmosphere of the foyer. The hotel is not only for overnight guests of Nashville but is also an attraction open to the public.
