Nashville, TN.

Thinking about where we should go after Kentucky and the first place that popped in mind was the Country Music capital of the U.S – Nashville, Tennessee.

Nashville is about 4 hours from Kentucky, so the decision was easy – the weekend would be spent there.  Nashville is a quirky town full of eclectic bars where you can listen to the hopeful stars to be, great beer and some even better people watching.  Nashville is one of those towns where its okay to be permanently drunk, which can easily provide you an afternoon of free entertainment.  The towns main st, Broadway, is definitely the place to make this happen. Grab a cold one and a window seat, I promise you wont be disappointed with what you might see.  Hands down my favorite spot was Acme Feed and Seed.  With a funky hipster interior, a menu that offers a variety of food that just works together; like sushi and BBQ, and a pretty wonderful beer selection, this place was a home-run in my head.  I got the Ahi-Tuna burger and Sweet Potato fries paired with a hometown brew, total A++ on the grading scale.

I am not typically a huge country music fan, but I love new experiences and learning things I may not have known the day prior – so I decided to check out the Johnny Cash museum.  Best decision I made that day, except for that large hot coffee I purchased at the museums very own coffee shop {offering hot beverages such as “The Brew named Sue.”}  The museum is super well done and intimate, it was almost as if you were talking with the Man in Black himself.  Did you know Johnny Cash is the only artist to have chart topping album across 6 decades?

Conveniently enough, located directly across the street from the Cash Museum was a another Nashville legend in the form of a candy store.  The Goo Goo shop has been a Nashville staple since 1912, and after taking a bite of the iconic candy bar, I could see why.  The best way to describe a Goo Goo would be saying its the equal parts love child of a Twix, a Pay Day and a Milkway.  Essentially its heaven.  Its so good, Al Gore gave out Goo Goos to his lucky Trick or Treaters during his time as the Vice Pres. Uh, yum.  Do yourself a favor and make a detour here, ASAP.

Other Nashville notables, buy yourself a ticket and go see the Grand Ole Opry.  The legendary live show is full of musical greatness and is an awesome way to spend an evening.  Located right next store is the Opryland Hotel, housing one of the largest indoor atrium’s.  You could easily spend a day getting lost in the hotel exploring the different indoor rivers and forests.

Needless to say, Nashville was good to me during my short time spent there.
