A Girls Weekend in Nashville

If you missed the first part of our trip see it here.

Saturday morning we woke up and headed to take a tour of the Grand Ole Opry. The home of the Opry is now about a 15 minute drive out of town, but the experience was well worth the drive. We loved our tour guide. Getting the behind the scenes tour was so cool. Being able to see where the artist come in their special artist entrance to perform, and check out the green room, and all the dressing rooms, as well as going out on stage was a really cool experience. I would love to come back and see the Grand Ole Opry show here sometime. After our tour we went into the Opryland Hotel to look around. It is so pretty inside.

Next we headed back to town to Musicians Corner at Centennial Park. It was a really nice day so we just spent the day relaxing in the park and listening to the music. There were food trucks and ice cream trucks at the concert. We had banh mi that was delicious. The music was awesome and it was just a perfect afternoon in the park.

From the park we went to check out some local breweries. We went to Jackalope Brewing Company and Yazoo Brewing Company. Both were really fun atmospheres for a laid back Saturday afternoon.

Dinner was at City Winery. We had made reservations, but the place was empty. The food was good and the restaurant was very nice, but I think I would rather go here when they have an event. They host concerts and different events that look fun, but it was kind of dead the night we went. There also wasn’t much near it and the area where it is didn’t seem like the best area to be walking around… so we headed back to The Listening Room because we had loved it so much the night before.

Once the show finished up we headed for lower Broadway. We decided what’s a girls trip to Nashville without checking out all the Honky Tonks. There was great music, and we wandered in an out of different places dancing and singing for awhile before we got tired and headed back to our hotel.

We woke up the next morning and went to check out the County Music Hall of Fame. Y’all you could spend HOURS in this place. It is so full of memorabilia and things to read and learn about that in order to see it all would take quite a bit of time. We hit the highlights, stopping to check out the exhibits from some of our favorite artists, but no way we could see it all. The one thing we kept noticing is how tiny all the stars look. Their clothes are on display on mannequins, and I think I’m too big to be famous (and I’m not very big at all). They’re so TINY, even the men!

We loved our weekend in Nashville! I can’t wait to go back. Next time I hope to get to see the Grand Ole Opry and to see a show at the Ryman. Or maybe both at once, since during the winter months the Opry moves back home to its roots at the Ryman.
