Music City U.S.A.

Known as the capital of country music, the thriving city of Nashville combines old-world southern charm with a progressive urban flair.
Lane Motor Museum and Tennessee State Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Your inner history buff will appreciate Stones River National Battlefield and Lotz House Museum.

There's still lots to do: admire the majestic nature at Burgess Falls State Park, see the interesting displays at Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum, take an in-depth tour of The Johnny Cash Museum & Cafe, and sample the fine beverages at Nelson's Green Brier Distillery.
