Why fly to Nashville?
It has been known as the home of country music and rhine-studded Dolly Partyon flare for decades but these days Nashville's taken the country and added a bit of city hip. The city is very much in tune with its country music roots but it is also home to hip restaurants and slick hotels as well as a nightlife that ranges from country to hip-hop to techno.
roots but country music is all class these days and venues are slick and old favorites are alive and well pumping out the classic country tunes. No visit to the city is complete without a visit to the Grand Ole Opry. The original home of the venue is the Ryman Auditorium where you can book tickets to a show.
If you want to spend a night where dreams have been made, head to Shoney's, a motel where many of the famous artists you know today have layed down their pretty little heads and dreamt their dreams of Nashville stardom. The motel is located on Demonbreum which is the country music factory in essence, housing studios and the head offices of numerous labels.
A visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame is a great way to learn about the history of this music that's spawned a city. For a night of great country music in modern settings head to East Nashville. You can start your evening off with some traditional Nashville grub and then head to one of the many bars that flank the streets (music doesn't usually get started until 9).
You cannot go to Nashville without making a visit to the Wildhorse Saloon, which is legendary. If you've never line-danced before this is where you can learn how to do it and then practice the whole night long. Nashville residents are known for their friendly and helpful nature so more often than not if you're not sure exactly what you're doing you can ask one of the cowboys or cowgirls whipping across the floor and they'll be happy to teach you a few steps.
Nashville is a whirlwind of a trip and you will feel exhilarated and looking forward to a flight back.
Nashville weather is warm and rainy, and sometimes at the same time. The summers are warm to hot with temperatures in the high 20s, paired with the rain the air in the city can get quite humid at times. In the winter the temperatures are cool and can drop into the minus degrees.
When to fly to Nashville
Summers are busy despite rain or humidity since it really is quite a fun place to be from June through September with festivals and live music outdoors. The popularity of a Nashville summer trip means you will pay a high flight fare if you choose to book during the summer months.
Tourist season abruptly ends when the cold weather hits. You can find some good flight deals for October and November before the really cold temperatures hit. January through March the temperatures drop as do the flight prices so it is a good time to head to Nashville and experience all of its indoor attractions and just bundle up for the treks outside. Winter hats are very fashionable!
Getting into Nashville
Your gateway into Nashville opens up at the Nashville International Airport. You won't get very far before you truly feel like you have arrived in the city of music as live music performances take place right in the airport. After you've taken in a performance or two, you can hop on one of the public buses or airport shuttle buses to get to your location. Alternatively, taxis and rental cars are also available at the airport.
Getting around Nashville
Travelling within the downtown Nashville core is very easy. You can take the public transit system or the trolleys that circulate in the city center. The city center is very walkable, however if you plan to travel outside the downtown core you may want to rent a car or hire a car and driver as the city is very spread out and the huge freeways going from one place or another are not very friendly if you try to make a walk of it.
- Go camping just outside of the city. There are several options for people with trailers. You can head to Loretta Lynn's Ranch and Family Campground, which is not just for camping but also has a museum focused on local history.
- Have tea! Enjoy a traditional Southern style tea service at the Hermitage Hotel. Find yourself straight in some sort of novel set in the old west as you savour Devonshire cream and rhubarb jam on fresh-baked scones along with fancy tea.
- Visit the Belle Meade Plantation for a step back in history. It is the site of an old thoroughbred farm and today offers tours across the vast property which includes several buildings including the massive home and carriage house.
- For a bit of quiet head out to the Natchez Trace which is located west of the city. The forested area has numerous age-old trails for you to hike and explore. Take a picnic and enjoy the day.
