Comfortably travel to Nashville on your schedule in a chartered jet. Call GrandView Aviation at (800) 609-8159 to schedule your vacation.

Visit The Hermitage Hotel

Nashville’s Hermitage Hotel is over 100 years old, and its history is littered with famous guests. Filled with well-appointed rooms, the entire hotel is spectacular. The lobby is stunning, but the must-see spot on the property is the bathroom. The lobby’s men’s bathroom has been named the best bathroom in America for its style and amenities, and it’s open to both women and photography due to its fame.

Try Succulent Hot Chicken

Hot chicken is marinated in a blend of seasonings, floured, then fried before it is coated with a cayenne pepper sauce and wedged between slices of white bread and pickle chips. We recommend Hattie B’s and Prince’s Hot Chicken as the two best spots to try this spicy Southern treat.

Visit a Full-Size Replica of the Parthenon

Centennial Park features a full-size replica of the Parthenon. While the original is showing its age a bit, Nashville’s dates to just 1897, so it’s in far better shape. Built for Tennessee’s centennial, it now operates as an art museum. The museum houses paintings by 19th- and 20th-century American artists and also offers space for temporary rotating exhibits. Centered in the space is an unexpected 42-foot-tall statue of Athena covered in gold leaf.

Hunt for Stunning Street Art

Street art can be found almost everywhere in Nashville. It’s tucked away in alleys and hidden under bridges, and trying to find it all seems like a scavenger hunt. The most popular mural in the city is the “Wings Mural” by Kelsey Montague, located in The Gulch.

Hear Music from Undiscovered Artists in a Listening Room

If you’re interested in a relaxing, intimate environment to hear to music in Nashville, listening rooms feature songwriters and up-and-coming performers and offer a different way to experience Music City. We recommend Bluebird Cafe and The Listening Room Cafe, as they both serve food and provide complimentary valet parking.

Sample Spirits at Local Distilleries

We recommend Corsair Distillery, Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery, and Nashville Craft Distillery if a distillery tour or a tasting experience is up your alley during your trip to Nashville.

Check Out the Nightlife in Printers Alley

Printers Alley was once the center of Nashville’s printing industry and is a National Historic District. It’s now a central part of the city’s nightlife scene and includes nightclubs, karaoke joints, bars, and venues for live music.

Tour the Country Music Hall of Fame

A visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame is one of the best things to do in Nashville. As one of the world’s largest museums, it houses more than 2.5 million artifacts, including recordings, photos, instruments, costumes, and more. It also features large exhibits, like Elvis’ “Solid Gold” Cadillac that was painted using crushed diamonds and fish scales.
