Sightseeing in The District, Nashville

Music Venue
“ the venue that started it all. It was the Ryman -- “the Mother Church of Country Music” -- that first started attracting names like Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, and George Jones, securing Nashville’s status as the American center of country music. The Ryman remains a country music mecca, but as one of the city’s most dazzling concert-going experiences, has also hosted everyone from the Foo Fighters to Janelle Monae. Even if you don’t make it to a concert, it’s at least worth taking the time for a brief tour. Check their homepage for concerts and dates.”

“We've been to some great venues around the country, and Ryman Auditorium is absolutely one of the most stunning concert halls around. Tours are available, but the real treat is getting to see a live show in the beautiful auditorium that was once a church. Its history is unrivaled and its lineups of shows is unprecedented. If you do see a show here, get there when the doors open for a chance to get an exclusive Hatch Print that's uniquely hand-pressed for each show; they are $20 and available in limited amounts at the upstairs merchandise booth. ”

“Fort Nashborough was where it all begun for the city of Nashville. In 1779 this stockade was built to protect the local people from wild animal and Indian attacks. It was built from logs and covered an area of 2 acres. The fort was reconstructed in the 1930’s out of used telegraph poles and tells a fascinating story about the history and origins of this city. One month after the land for the original fort was agreed to be purchased the American Revolution broke out.”
