Tennessee Part 1: The Hermitage and Nashville

Mike, Abby and I were blessed to stay with friends, David and Carol (plus Molly the doggy), just outside of Nashville for a week.  While there Mike and I spent a day on the grounds of The Hermitage, President Andrew Jackson’s estate, for $15 each.  We could have paid more to tour the inside of the mansion but wanted to save some money for Nashville visit.  Beautiful grounds, great exercise and learned about history, but too expensive for what you get.

Mike and I went to Nashville for the day.  We paid about $79 for both of us to take the Old Time Trolley (Hop on Hop off) ride.  The trolley ride is a tour through town and gives you highlighted history of the area.  We enjoy this for exploring a new city, highly recommend; worth the money.  Parking for the day was $40, a bit much or ALOT.  While in Nashville, we saw the Ryman Auditorium (birth place of the Grand Old Opry), Tootsie’s, the Music Walk of Fame, the Parthenon in Centennial Park, Belmont Manson and University.  Mike and I had lunch and walked around the Bicentennial Capital Mall State Park and admired the Tennessee history wall and WW2 memorial.  We look forward to going back to explore museums.  This is a city you could visit several times and experience something new each time.

Thank you and God bless.
