Nashville is the capital of the state of Tennessee and is the second largest city after Memphis. The city is known for music and the music industry earning it the nickname “Music City”.
The day after we arrived was Kelly’s birthday so we walked into the city to see what we could find.
We walked through the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park taking in the war memorial and learning about the history of the state of Tennessee.
Following this we climbed up the stairs to the Tennessee State Capitol which is not only a national historic landmark but also the location of the Governor’s Office. The views down across the mall and outskirts of the city were really beautiful.
After this we hit Broadway, which is the central location for the majority city’s bars and restaurants. Here we spent a large quantity of the afternoon in Honky Tonk Central listening to a local country band and building up the courage to take on one of the free line dancing lessons held at the Wildhorse Saloon.
We enjoyed a tasty dinner here and had a really good time learning the dance. You can see more of our adventures in our video here.
Here are a few of our favourite photos from our day out in the city.
