Winter is in full swing in Nashville, TN, and if the snow on this southern ground is any indication, it isn’t going anywhere.
While Nashville is typically thought of as a summer getaway (CMA Fest, anyone?), winter in Music City is still a great time to visit or even just explore as a local. So what are the best places to see and things to do during these bitter months ahead? Here are 5 of the best:
The Grand Ole Opry
Whether at the Ryman during the first part of the year, or back at the Opryhouse a few weeks later, The Grand Ole Opry is a must whether you are a Nashville tourist or resident. Always a mix of the classics and newcomers, the Opry never disappoints, and will leave you wishing you knew how to pick a guitar like The Rocky Top X-Press.
Feeling competitive? Check out Pinewood Social, an upscale bowling alley just off of First Avenue in downtown. Knock over a few pins with friends, and chow down on some of the most legendary appetizers in the South.
Nashville Repertory Theatre
Housed in the ever popular Tennessee Performing Arts Center, the Nashville Repertory Theatre has productions playing from now through the beginning of spring. Performed by local professionals, these shows are the perfect mix of modern artistry and classic craftmanship.
Country Music Hall of Fame
Be a shameless tourist for a day and take a walk around the Country Music Hall of Fame. The CMHOF tells the story of Nashville, and how it came to be the flashy city it is today. Starting from its humble roots, the exhibits will walk you through time as Hee Haw turns to Reba and Reba turns to Brad Paisley. Plus, you’ll get to check out Elvis Presley’s historic gold Cadillac. Who doesn’t want to see that?
While not the main draw to Music City, snatch a seat to a Nashville Predators game in Bridgestone Arena while the hockey team is in town. Not only is there sure to be a good game, but you will also get to see Mr. Carrie Underwood in action.
Music City is the perfect place to visit, no matter the season. Start planning your trip today, and jump headfirst into the adventure that awaits.
