The SoBro is situated south of Broadway and part of downtown, has bustling bars, cool restaurants and a vibrant music scene. This is where you will find the music city center, country music hall of fame and museum, walk of fame park, and Legendary Johnny Cash musical cafe.
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum Admission fee $26.65 per adult. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum seeks to collect, preserve, and interpret the evolving history and traditions of country music. Through exhibits, publications, and educational programs, the museum teaches its diverse audiences about the enduring beauty and cultural importance of country music. After that we headed to Johnny Cashmusical cafe. I honestly did not expect much from the Johnny Cash musical cafe considering I had just left the Country Music Hall of Fame but I had to stop because it is Johnny Cash after all. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Every bit of the museum tour was well worth the low price of admission. Some of the collection and Artefact on display were breathtaking; the interactive portions of the museum were fun. If you’re a history lover, you absolutely cannot miss a visit to the Johnny Cash museum while in Nashville.
Broadway is the main downtown area in Nashville, where many of the most famous bars, shops, and restaurants are all located. One of the coolest things about Broadway is that there is pretty much live music 24/7 at almost all of the bars/restaurants on this street. Go to any restaurant or bar to enjoy with your friends. I would recommend Kid Rock's Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N' Roll Steakhouse; this place is just awesome.
On the next day we started from Belle Meade Plantation. Belle Meade Plantation is one of the only plantations left in the Nashville area. This place offer several Historic tours, Winery taste, and Outdoor adventures

The Mansion Tour tells the century-long history of Belle Meade through the stories and experiences of the Harding and Jackson families, as well as the women, men, and children who labored here.

Once we had made our way completely through the mansion tour, our guided tour was over, and we followed our guide from the house to the winery for our free tasting. With your guided tour ticket purchase, a free tasting at the winery is also included. We tried 6 different types of wines, ranging from dry reds to sweeter whites and blends.
Guided Segway Tour; This tour is really enjoyable for the kids. Saw several kids were enjoying this tour
Our next destination place is the Parthenon at Centennial Park – This is a replica of the Parthenon in Athens Greece and is set in Centennial Park. The park is free and a great place for picnics. The Parthenon also holds an Art Museum that requires a fee. No visit to Nashville would be complete without visiting the huge Parthenon. One of Tennessee's most remarkable attractions, it can be found in Centennial Park, just a short walk from the city's downtown core. The park also does many events. For dinner we went to a famous bluebird cafe !!
Overall we enjoyed it a lot.

- Music City Walk of Fame – Located near Honky Tonk Row, there are stars of famous country music singers, from Dolly Parton to Elvis Presley.
