Up to eyeballs in work... But I had a quick question for ya...

What do you know about Nashville, TN?

Heading there this weekend; Zack & I are meeting up with Paul. Want to check out some music stores with Zman, and have a fun family weekend.

Had a moment of knee-wriggling hope when I thought Robert Fripp was in town, but apparently that's Wednesday, and we don't get there 'til Thursday. SO not fair.

So where to go? What to do? Do we need a car? Should we stay downtown?

Any and all feedback is very much appreciated :) Thanks!

I'm not all that familiar with Nashville, but my boy grew up there, so I'm going to see if I can't steer him in your direction. :-)

I do know that the Opry Mills mall is a fun mall--I mean, it's probably standard as malls go, but neither Atlanta nor my hometown in Kentucky has good malls, so by my standards, it's fun.

You'll definitely need a car, or at least the number of a taxi company. Nashville, as I understand it, follows the grand Southern tradition of sprawling out all over the place and then not developing decent public transportation.

And, well, that's all I got. Hopefully Ross can offer further advice. ;-)

It has been a long time since I've needed stuff to do in Nashville. But I'll try.

The Country Music Hall of Fame has a few interesting exhibits in it. There might be a minor league hockey game (I know nothing about hockey, but Nashville has a team). There is a science museum in town that is very hands on, but largely geared for young audiences. When I lived there, it was called the Cumberland Science Museum, but I think it may have changed its name since then. If you are at all interested, the city has a bunch of memorials and parks dedicated to the capitol. Beyond that, there is the Grand Ole' Opry, and a huge number of line dance clubs downtown. You might also try the riverfront area, but I don't know what might be there.

That's all I have. Good luck and enjoy!

I don't know much about Nashville, but I did go there once to go to Opryland and we stayed in the Opryland Hotel. I heard not long ago that Opryland wasn't open anymore.

Actually, it closed in 1997, and was replaced by a mall. The Hotel is still there.
