We did the Music Row Confidential which was a good drive along Music Row, and major tourist route of sights.
Takes off from Market near Capitol.
Very enjoyable, affordable and good use of time to see town.
forgot to thank poster for this interesting recommendation. Definitely going to look into it.

Looks like we're finally heading to Nashville for a day or three in June. We'll stop by on the way to Mammoth Cave where we hope to go down in the caves one or two days.

This will be with 3 kids (4, 9, and 11 at the time of the trip). Any kid-centric activities? It's going to be June so hot as crap I expect. Is the Capitol building and grounds worth a visit? Anything else right around there? Might just do 1 full day in Nashville.

Nashville is more of a pitstop on the way to Mammoth Cave and then we go north to Toronto (via Detroit) and return to the US through Niagara Falls (and stay a few nights there). Heading back to Raleigh I think we'll stay near DC and hit the Air n Space museum by the airport and see the space shuttle (kids didn't really know what that is!).

Retired in 2013 at age 33. Keeping busy reading, blogging, relaxing, gaming, and enjoying the outdoors with my wife and 3 kids (4, 10, and 11).

Looks like we are going to have some fun. Anybody recommend/not recommend The Parthenon? That is on our (tentative) list.
I haven't actually been in it, just all around it. ($6 adults, $4 kids, and we are too cheap for our own good sometimes....)

From outside, pretty cool, and full size replica that was never used to store ammunition.... Basically, this is more true to the original than the original is (ignoring the siting). The park in which it sits has a lot of good free music in the summer--especially if you are coming on a weekend.

Another idea (for FUEGO too) is the Hermitage, Andrew Jackson's estate.

I'd recommend against the Nashville zoo--although we were SO spoiled in St. Louis, it is not really fair to compare....

Thanks for your "shout-out". The Music a Row Confidential route will take you by Parthenon (and through Vanderbilt campus).

The best things in life aren't THINGS!
