Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Nashville: Montgomery Bell State Park (in Burns), Burgess Falls (in Sparta) and Walden Pumpkin Farm (in Smyrna). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, get engrossed in the history at The Johnny Cash Museum & Cafe, see a show at Grand Ole Opry, and contemplate the long history of Belle Meade Plantation.
