That's not fair, I'm sure they have very lovely trees
We have these!
And people from the north ask us if we polish the leaves.
I'm going to be in nashville next week, anything I should do?
Go see The Opryland Hotel.
I can't remember exactly when they start decorating for Christmas, but it might be as soon as next week. Even if it's not decorated, it's a hell of a hotel. And right next to it is Opry Mills
, a really nice mall.
Downtown, be sure to hit 2nd and 3rd Avenues. That's where all the country/tourist-y stuff is, with quite a bit of local things as well. The Ryman Auditorium
is in that area too, 5th Avenue. All of this stuff is right off Broadway, so you'll be able to find it. And on Broadway, there's Tootsie's Orchid Lounge.
It's purple, tiny and tacky, and it's kind of a big deal.
Also right off Broadway is the Arena,
there's always something going on there. You could catch some hockey from a bad southern team, yay! And at the end of Broadway closest to the Cumberland River, you should be able to see the Titan's stadium. And while you're standing there on the river, hop on the General Jackson
and have dinner and a movie. I've only been on it once, but it's a really nice riverboat. The Bluebird Cafe
is another spot a lot of people stop at. It's not downtown, but you should be able to find a map to it. It's on Hillboro Road, which is kind of a pain in the ass road, but all cities have those.
That should keep you busy for a day or two.
