So, I’ve been working quite a bit lately, and even had a 28-hour workday on Friday in Cleveland. Since I was away the entire weekend, I felt like Tammy and I needed a break together.
So, we decided to go into Nashville, and make a full day of it. We had a blast!! It was so worth it, and I can’t wait for us to go back again! I think we’ll be doing it again more sooner than later.
We first visited downtown Nashville. It was amazing. All of the buildings. The City Hall area was beautiful with water fountains and just a beautiful view.
After City Hall, we started roaming the streets. I got a great picture of the AT&T (a.k.a. – The Batman Building), and our state capitol:
After that, we decided to go to Music Row. We were kinda disappointed. To be honest, I was expecting to see a “Hollywood” avenue-type environment for musicians. But, alas, all we saw were just a few recording studios and some really expensive cars sitting in front of an Italian Bistro. Of course, we didn’t cruse the whole thing.
Once we got over the Music Row disappointment, we went to Centennial Park
, and most importantly, the full-scale replica of the Parthenon
. Now, that was an impressive part of our day. The parthenon was full-scale, and had a 42-foot statue of Athena. We loved it. We were a little discerned by the $5 each entry fee, but felt it was well worth it.
After that, we walked to the botanical gardens. It was really beautiful, and now that spring is just starting, smelled so fresh. Just like a fresh start from a cold wintery season.
Once we were done with the fresh air, we wanted to waste just a little more time before we ate dinner, so we went to Opry Mills, and chilled around the mall. Most of our time was spent at Bass Pro, wishing we could buy the 24′ Tracker Party Barge, that we were drooling over (we will get it… oh yes… we will get it).
We finished our day with eating a fantastic dinner at Dave and Busters, and left home. But not before playing a few video games together!!
