Nashville, TN

I guess we came too far north too soon!

Our plan was to explore Nashville today, and we gave it a good try. It snowed, and it blowed, and it was cold. The high temp today was 35-40 degrees and very windy, so that kinda took the wind out of our sails. Yes, you can laugh at that. It was the coldest I have been all winter. But we were determined to see the city and decided not to turn back.

The snow let up by the time we finished our lunch, but it was still cold and windy.

One of our first stops was to visit The Parthenon, the only full-sized replica in the world of The Parthenon in Greece. This was originally built for Tennessee’s 1897 Centennial Exposition and now is the centerpiece of Centennial Park. It also serves as the city’s art museum.

Next, we made our way across town….

to visit Nashville’s Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. This is a beautiful park and if it hadn’t been so cold and windy we would have spent some time there walking around and enjoying all it had to offer. As it was, we took some pictures and moved on.

No visit to Nashville can go without seeing the Grand Ole Opry.

Nashville has a TON of interesting things to see and do and if we were going to be here longer we would see and do more. And if it would warm up! The low temp tonight is supposed to be 22 degrees.

    Yikes, we fully understand your pain. Might want to wait until four days or so before actually crossing the MN line!
    How do you research the fun places you always seem to find during your travels? I understand major cities such as Nashville, but some of the other minor, but very interesting sites you’ve posted about seem like they might be ‘local’ knowledge, but not in printed media.
    Thanks for your indulgence.

      We won’t be going to Minnesota just yet, headed to Washington DC to see the cherry blossoms next. Whenever we cross a state line, usually on the Interstates, there is almost always a Visitor Center with great local information, brochures, and such. Then there’s the internet, a simple Google search of our location has been very successful. Some of the really interesting quirky things I find on RoadsideAmerica.com
