My cousin is coming to town sometime in the next 2 months and wanted to know what she should see and do in Nashville. She especially wantd to know if the Country Music Hall of Fame was worth the $18 admission fee. When I told her I had never been to the Country Music Hall of Fame, she was completely and utterly shocked.
“What do you mean you have never been to the Country Music Hall of Fame?! I mean, you live there. How can you live there and not go?”
Ah, well, I don’t really care one whit about country music. I’d probably only go if admission was free, and even then, I’m not sure I’m that interested. Sorry, country fans. I’m a rock n’ roll kinda girl living in a country town. What can I say?
But it did get the rocks in my brain rolling about doing touristy things in town to have vacation-like experiences without the cost of driving all over creation. A couple of weeks ago, we hit Cumberland Caverns and the kids are still talking about it. We like to go to the local museums (except, of course, the Country Music Hall of Fame) and battlefields.
So, if you can’t afford a full blown vacation this year, what about hitting some of your local touristy spots? You can easily stretch your vacation-y goodness to last the whole summer. That’s our plan.
Home Eccers, tell me- what are some of your favorite touristy things to do in your town?
