First thing about Nashville: it does not matter where you go, the music is country. Gas stations, supermarket, bathroom, hotel, Downtown Nashville on the sidewalk, the City has speakers hidden in electrical boxes, playing- country music  you name it, its country. We need this in BC.  Also if you are in the Market for Cowboy Boots, Nashville is the place.   We went to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, it was good, but we felt not worth the 22.50/ person charge. So for that reason we would not recommend it. It was cool to see some of the History and watch some old movies of country greats. The building itself was spectacular. the ceilings were 10+ floors in some parts. Next we walked around downtown, Aya finally found a Dunkin’ Donuts. Then we headed over to the “Honky Tonk Highway” which is what Nashville is famous for. Country bars, all with live music, boot stores, western wear, etc etc. It was an interesting day. Also checked out the Johnny Cash Museum and Store, but after being burned on Museum tickets earlier, we passed on the $15/ person tickets. From there, we checked out the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Resort. We didn’t take any photos here. After a restful sleep at the local Walmart, we checked out Opry Mills Shopping mall, and Bass Pro Shops (similar to Cabela’s), and the Dukes of Hazzard Museum (free, like it should be). Then Next door to Willie Nelson’s store. And that about wrapped up Nashville. Like we have said before, a big city is just a big city. We prefer out in the Country seeing the landscapes, beaches, mountains, etc vs stores and pavement.
