Flights And Sights
Flying To Nashville With American Airlines
Get into the groove of Music City with American Airlines flights to Nashville. There are so many wonderful attractions waiting to be discovered here, and there are fun things to do in Nashville for the entire family. Nashville is, of course, the headquarters of music—many kinds of music, but most famously country and western.
Things to Do in Nashville
The first stop for any music buff (or even history buff) is the Grand Ole Opry Museum. Located adjacent to the famous Grand Ole Opry House, the museum houses tributes to icons who performed on radio show over the years, including Patsy Cline, George Jones and Marty Robbins. But you’ll also find exhibits dedicated to modern performers, too. And attending a show at the Opry is one of our favorite activities in Nashville.
Another memorable thing to do in Nashville is to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. In fact, your visit to Music City simply would not be complete without checking it out. In addition to Elvis artifacts, you’ll see exhibits about the history of country music. You’ll enjoy interactive jukeboxes and listening stations, and emerge with a new appreciation for country music. The Hall of Fame is also where you sign up to visit the old RCA Recording Studio where Elvis (and many other legends) recorded tracks.
And if hearing about music’s history has put you in the mood to actually listen to some live music, you’ll be able to satisfy that craving nearly anywhere in the city. But we think one of the most festive things to do in Nashville is to stroll down Lower Broadway. It’s four blocks that are completely packed with live music venues, restaurants, bars and shops. Plus, Nashville’s Visitors Center is located at the Nashville Arena at 5th Avenue and Broadway—a perfect spot to begin your walking tour.
Take a day away from music-related pursuits and visit the Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art. Originally a private estate, today Cheekwood is a 55-acre park with myriad gardens to explore, including the Japanese garden, in addition to a glass bridge along a wooded trail. And the little ones in your group can stretch their legs in the open meadows here. The original mansion houses the art collection and many of the home’s period furniture is on display.
Fly to Nashville and plan a family trip that’s music to everyone’s ears. We look forward to helping you discover one of the country’s friendliest, most fascinating cities.
