Hello! I'm back with another travel post of our Spring Vacation. We did so much on Day Five in Nashville, that I will have to break it up into four or five posts to be able to share everything. I've already shared our morning at The Hermitage, and our time spent in Centennial Park, now today's post will be about our walk down Broadway St., or 'The Entertainment District', as it is called on their city map.
Before I begin, you should know I don't drink, smoke, nor do I like country music. So what the heck am I doing in Nashville? I have no idea. We were just constantly driving through Nashville to get to other destinations and we thought that someday we should stop and check it out. So we planned one day, and only one day, to spend there.
We parked our car in a parking garage and the second we entered the city street there was a lady sitting on the sidewalk asking for money, stating that she and her husband 'had a situation'. Well, even though I'm a country girl, I grew up in a big city and I still spend a lot of time in Chicago so I know a scam artist when I see one, so we walked right by only to encounter her 'husband' or partner in crime, a few feet later.
After we ignored the second beggar, we started searching for Broadway. The city streets themselves were very clean, and it is a very attractive and pretty city. There is a beautiful blend of old, historical architecture mixed with modern buildings like the one below.
Looking back, I wonder if our experience of Nashville would have been different had we visited the Grand Ole Opry or something similar to that. My husband remarked that it was quite a young crowd on Broadway. Maybe we would have found Nashville more to our liking had we gone to some other attraction. But like I said earlier, we only had one day to spend in Nashville and we couldn't go to everything. I don't know if we will ever go back there to have another experience and perhaps form a different opinion. There are so many other places in the United States we want to visit, we most likely will never have the time. But if you ever went to Nashville and you had a different experience, I would love to hear from you!
Have a great day! Amy
