    I wish I had read this back in January as I visited Nashville for a work trip (which also coincided with my 30th) and stayed in the Gaylord Opryland Resort which was insaaaane! We had so much fun exploring downtown, and the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum. It would have been fun to have included a few other things from this list too, I wasn't aware of most of these!

    Well, I guess that just means that you need to plan another trip soon!!

    When I visited Nashville, my favourite thing was the nightlife on Broadway. All those honky tonks and dancing were amazing. During the day, I was fascinated by the various museums.
