8 Things Your Spouse or Guest Can Experience in Nashville
Nashville, known for abundant entertainment, history, dining and cultural attractions, is gaining acclaim as one of the top places in the world to visit.
Nashville has arranged an outstanding lineup of spouse/guest tours for the 2015 NLC Congress of Cities and Exposition, Nov. 4-7. While you participate in conference sessions, your guest can choose from an array of tours that will provide a front row experience for Nashville history, music, dining and cultural distinctions that can only be found in Music City.
- Go straight to The Heart of Country with a guided tour of the world famous Ryman Auditorium (pictured top right). For those who love country music, walking into the Ryman is like walking on sacred ground. Explore the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, where permanent exhibits display a rich collection of costumes, memorabilia, instruments, photographs and manuscript. Follow the beat down to Music Row where chart-toppers and hit records have taken flight.
- Witness the powerful history of the Civil Rights movement in Nashville, where in 1960, in the midst of a bustling downtown Nashville, the student non-violent organization was born from among the city's four black colleges.
- Nashville's historical significance and impact goes beyond the music. Experience Tennessee as it was 150 years ago at The Hermitage (pictured bottom right), home of President Andrew Jackson. You will hear the tall tales of the man considered the first president of the "common man" and known to many as "Old Hickory."
- Wet your whistle with the essential B's - we're talking Beer, Bourbon and Brews. Sip on slow-roasted coffee from Bongo Java, throw back a flight of beer from Nashville's original and most popular craft brewery, Yazoo Brewing, and taste small batch spirits from the inventive, award-winning Corsair Distillery. All are brewed, distilled and packaged right here in Nashville.
