There are so many fun honky tonks in Music City – but Nashville also offers so much more than Broadway bars. If you’re a country music fan, we’ve rounded up five great music-related things to do in the 615. Whether you’re an out of town guest or a local, you’re sure to enjoy these activities which let you explore the city in new ways!
Arrington Vineyards is a must-do Nashville winery because it’s owned by none other than Kix Brooks, of Brooks & Dunn. The winery is open all year round and features wine all made right here in Tennessee. From their picnic style wine tastings to live music, Arrington is a nice change of pace from Broadway.
The Escape Game is perfect for any family or friend groups in Music City who need a little reboot after a long night out. They have a fun “Nashville” themed room where you and your teammates are solving clues, working against the clock as you pretend you are an up-and-coming band – you must find a hidden contract in the “recording studio” in hopes of making it big. It’s a #1 rated activity on TripAdvisor, and with their convenient location downtown, it’s a great place to experience country music in a new way.
It’s no secret that Music City is filled with tons of history, but it can be hard to keep up with all of it. All you need for a little refresher is a visit to the Country Music Hall Of Fame. From rotating exhibits like Loretta Lynn’s Blue Kentucky Girl and ones that you can see year round like the Taylor Swift Education Center, the museum offers something for every country fan.
This is something every Music City tourist needs to see! A tour of this historical spot will give fans chills as they stand on a circle where thousands of musical legends have sang before them. Along with a tour, you can also buy tickets to check out a performance from various country music acts in town. There is truly nothing like the Opry!
Grimey’s is a must stop for any one passing through or moving to Nashville. This independent record store has everything from CDs to LPs to DVDs. They also have in-store performances from pretty awesome artists, like Kacey Musgraves and Jason Isbell. You won’t want to miss out on the chance to take home a great record, and possibly meet your favorite artist.
