Nashville Tennessee


                I’m not sure which one of us thought it would be a good idea to take two young boys to Nashville…. But it was fun and they are little music gurus.  My boys love music, they love to sing, play guitar, and jam a little bit on the piano.  Yes, I said jam and piano in the same sentence because they are young enough it sounds like they are just banging on it sometimes. 


                When the opportunity came to take a trip to Nashville with the family, it sounded like a good idea at the time.  They had fun, they really did but it was a little stressful trying to keep track of them on the extremely busy streets.  Maybe I am just a worry wart mom, but I really don’t let them wonder more than an arm length away.  Plus, the boys really did not enjoy it either.  Walking through the busy streets can be pretty difficult for such little feet. 
 


                Nashville offered some great food! One of my favorite places to eat is Wild Horse Salon.  Yes, it sounds a little iffy, but they have some amazing food and it is defiantly a kid friendly restaurant before the late hours.  Plus, they play music almost non-stop and there is a huge dance floor filled with children running around dancing after their meal.  It was really entertaining to watch even one of the times we were without the kiddos. 

                Different shops throughout the town offered some history and you could tour their mini museums which I felt were interesting enough.  However, if the busy streets aren’t really for you, then take the family onto the outskirts of town.  The Grand Ol Opry offers shopping and near by is more restaurants and even some go-kart racing which the entire family enjoyed. 

                  Personally, I have been to Nashville several times and it is really a place I would go to again and again.  I don’t recommend taking the kids or at the very least not taking them out after dark because the town fills with alcohol and people who won’t make the smartest choices.  But it is really an experience everyone should have at least once in their lives, especially if you love music as much as we do.
