4 Places to Know About in Nashville, Tennessee

As a prospective home buyer, it's always good to know a little bit about the area you're going to be moving into. Sure, your realtor probably lets you in on a few fun facts about the neighborhood or specific area you'll be living in, but in this brief article I'm going to go over 4 attractions in Nashville, Tennessee that you should know about.

The Pantheon & Centennial Park

It may seem like odd placement, but Nashville, Tennessee is home to the only full-scale replica of the Greek pantheon in the entire world. Take one step through the stone columns and you won't doubt it for a second… This place is huge! Truly awe-inspiring to behold; it really feels like the original when you're inside.

The Pantheon is situated inside of Centennial Park, which is gorgeous in and of itself. Located just a little ways outside of downtown Nashville, the park offers a great place for your family to enjoy a day in the sun, senior or family pictures, and just about any other outdoor activity.

Opryland Indoor Hotel and Gardens

This beautiful hotel is both luxurious and integral as part of Nashville's rich history. It was originally built to support the Grand Ole Opry, which we discuss later in this article. However, now The Opryland Hotel is its own distinct landmark, complete with 3 nationally awarded indoor gardens that will make your jaw drop. It is, of course, a bit pricey to actually stay in, but it's well worth the small parking fee to walk around inside and behold the amazing collection of exotic plants and artwork.

Country Music Hall of Fame

Whether or not you are a country music fan, visiting Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame will be both educational and rewarding. Of course, if you do enjoy the soulful thrums of western country then the museum will be exponentially more enjoyable, but regardless it makes a memorable stop for all. The museum is regularly cycling through exhibits, so there's almost always something new to see. Plus, they offer kid and teen activities throughout the month for extra entertainment.

Grand Ole Opry

Last but not least, the Grand Ole Opry is perhaps the keystone of Nashville culture. Featureing live performances from both old and new country greats, this venue is filled to the brim with Tennessee's history. If there are no performances when you happen to be there, a museum is attached in homage of the many country stars that have passed through or played in Nashville.

I hope you can see that Nashville, Tennessee has a lot to offer. These are just 4 of the many attractions available...This is one city where there truly is never a dull moment.
