When you vacation in Nashville, Tennessee, you know you are in for a good time. Not only are people in the Volunteer State considered some of the friendliest in the country, there's also a bevy of activities to enjoy and sites to see.
Of course, you will not want to miss out on spending a night watching country music stars sing their heart out at the Grand Ole Opry. This venue has played host to everyone from Dolly Parton to Jimmy Dickens to Carrie Underwood. If you aren't there the night of a concert, you can still get an inside look at this impressive structure by taking a backstage tour.
Another attraction that shouldn't be overlooked is the Fontanel Mansion. This 27,000-square-foot log cabin was owned by Country Music Hall of Fame member Barbara Mandrell. The home is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It's also available for weddings and other private events.
Finally, what trip to Nashville would be complete without visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum? As you browse the exhibits, which include "Sing Me Back Home: A Journey Through Country Music" and "The Bakersfield Sound: Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and California Country," you'll learn about how western music got its start in the 1800s and how the style was transformed into what it is today.
