I liked the state history museum, but that is the kind of thing that I like. Sam Houston's hat! The check from the Republic of Texas to the widow of Davy Crockett for his last, unfinished, pay period!

Try to see a show at the Ryman Theater--the original Grand Ole Opry. I have not been to the new one.

Lots of cool bars with live music downtown. Good restaurants.

Bonnaroo is in June.

The Hermitage is just east of downtown, near the GOO. It's a nice museum of Andrew Jackson.

Vanderbilt U. is SW of downtown. It's an elite university with some nice old buildings and some smart chicks.

Three huge Civil War battles were fought in the area, at Murfreesboro (Stones River), Franklin and Nashville. Franklin and Stones River are worth a visit. The cemetery at Stones River is real nice, if you like poetry carved in rocks.

As Chip says, it's a great city. I've always liked it there.

I think it's called 4th Street or Ave. It's the country music bar section of town. It's a 3-4 block section of town where every bar has a live band. Some have a cover charge, some don't. Some have line dancing or blue grass, others have a bunch of ordinary blokes pounding out cover tunes. Nice scene, IMO. I had a nice time, though two blonde chicks stole my cigarettes and lighter at the end.

Oh there is also an elephant sanctuary out of town. You can visit but not really hang out with the elephants.
