    Exploring Nashville

    June 26, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    We decided to spend an extra day in Nashville at the KOA campground. They had a shuttle that took us downtown to where the "action" was and we had a great time. We did a backstage tour of the Ryman Auditorium, home of the "Grand Ole Opry". It was a great tour with a tour guide who had story after story. We have a new appreciation for the country music legends. We enjoyed walking on Broadway St. going into the bars and listening to some great talent...those who are trying to "make it" here in Nashville I suppose. We especially liked the Jimmy Buffet Margarita Ville bar. They had a great female singer. We also enjoyed the famous "Tootsies". This has a back alley entrance from the Ryman Auditorium where performers would slip out to while waiting to go on stage. The story goes that several never made it back to the Ryman to perform. We had dinner at Pucketts, a recommendation by the campground staff as well as Betsy. We met some nice people and enjoyed the southern ribs.Read more
