You know, there's this great thing called the internet where you can go to google, type in "What to do in Nashville, TN", and figure out what sights there are. Just thought I'd let you know, TS.

yes and part of this "great thing" of the internet are "forums" that generally have people of like minds that COULD give better direction and hints. But i apologize for taking you away from your busy schedule of curing cancer and making the next space shuttle and wasting your time with my petty questions.

Instead of being a douche that suggests LMGTFY like the above...how about some ideas?

-Set up a way to check out the Ryman, whether it be a show or for a tour. It's one of the most historical venues in the country.

-Stop on by one of the fun microbrews in town, like Yazoo or Blackstone. Yazoo is the better brew; Blackstone is the better visit.

-If you are touristy, hit up Broadway. It has all the shops, cowboy bars, etc., that you'd expect if you think stereotypical Nashville.

-Bluebird Cafe is where it's really at for music/songwriting. It's hard to get into, but if you can, squeeze that in.

-Centennial Park is a pretty nice place if you are looking to just walk around and enjoy the outdoors without leaving the city, and it is the site of the art museum modeled after the Parthenon.

That should get you started, but there are lots of little goodies in various parts of town (such as the overpriced but fun-to-visit American Pickers shop). If you want to find more of those hidden gems, that might be where forums/digging on Google might come in handy; however, this should be a good start for ideas. Enjoy!

***EDIT*** Just visited your neck of the woods down in Clearwater. Gotta say, Tampa/St Pete/Clearwater area is pretty sweet.

Thanks Saw Guru, gonna hit up the American Pickers shop just to check it out. No way i can afford anything there. Definitely going to hit up that microbrew one of the nights, sounds like a great night. Just starting to search out stuff to do. Really excited to finally get there.
- Glad you dug Tampa/Clearwater!

I spent New Year's in Nashville, I was going to say go see Third Man records. Maybe go to Grimey's record shop. I had some great BBQ, but I can't recall the place.

My friend Dusty works there, so say hi, and my friend David (Dusty's brother) works at Garage Coffee Company so stop on in there, and say hi!

David's a pop musician in Nashville http://www.reverbnation.com/thisisdavidsmith

This may seem a bit odd, but do you know of a band called The Protomen? They're from Murfreesboro and someone on another forum said that pretty much everyone from there has heard of them. They're not an altogether well-known band, so I'm a little speculative of what he said, even if it was a bit of a hyperbole.
