Part Three - Nashville Attractions

Our vacation was three days over Memorial Weekend so we had to decide what we wanted to see out of all the interesting places in Nashville. To see some of the countryside surrounding Nashville we drove south about an hour and half to tour the Jack Daniel's Distillery. My hubby loves to learn more about processes and how they work. It is interesting that the county that Jack Daniels is located is a dry county.

We also visited the Country Music Museum. I grew up with a lot of country music played at our home, so I was very familiar with the early country singers (Porter Waggoner, Chet Atkins, Hank Snow, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, etc.). The museum was very well organized and had a lot of historical information about the beginnings of country western.

On our last day right before leaving, we stopped by Centennial Park, Nashville's Premier Urban Park. They have a re-creation of the Parthenon in Athens Greece. It was a beautiful park and they were just starting to setup craft booths for Memorial Day in the park. We were unable to stay and tour the art museum because we had a long drive to make to get back home.

We really enjoyed our trip and now know a few places to visit when we return.
