The Phoenix Cruiser owners club will be holding its reunion at the Nashville KOA this Sept. 10-15, 2015. What is there to see and do in and around Nashville?

I know about the Grand Ole Opry and the night clubs for the evenings, but what about during the day time. My wife likes country music but I am not musically inclined. I will sit through 2 1/2 hours of the Opry if she really wants to go. I saw on the internet that the Tennessee State fair will be happening during the reunion time. The reunion will include an afternoon boat trip on the river.

Have you been to Nashville? What did you see or do that you liked? What is not worth the time or money to see and do?
If you have not been to Nashville, have you heard of anything that we should consider seeing or doing?

Thank you in advance for the information.

We spent a few days in Nashville last year and stayed at the Nashville KOA.  It's a good location just down the road a bit from the Grand Ole Opry and Opry Mills Mall. There is a Camping World right next door and a number of restaurants nearby.  Getting into downtown was easy and pretty fast. The KOA was very nice.  We had good services and a level site.  The sites were a bit 'cozy', some shaded and some sunny and all very well maintained and clean.

We love country music, live music, bars, honky-tonks, etc so our three night stay was not nearly long enough.  Some recommended live music joints: Nashville Palace, Bluebird Cafe, Tootsies, Rippy's, Legend's Corner, Robert's Western World.

The Country Music Hall of Fame is highly recommended...even for not-so-country-fans.  It is huge, well designed and lots of fun!

The Grand Ole Opry is another highly recommended stop.  Again, even if you aren't much of a country music fan I think most would enjoy the evening. Beautiful building, not a bad seat in the house and they serve drinks! Parking is easy in the adjacent Opry Mills Mall.

We enjoyed the RCA Studio B tour. The bus leaves from the Country Music Hall of Fame and takes you there for the one hour walking tour.  Thousands of country hits recorded there including 200 of Elvis' songs were mastered there.  Very knowledgable tour guides.  Original instruments and recording equipment.

There are many beautiful parks, gardens and plantations in the area and this little city is among the cleanest I've ever seen.  Oh, and don't forget to indulge in a Moonpie or two  (they're made in Chatanooga)!

Some of the places that were recommended to us which we didn't have time to see:

Lane Motor Museum
Belle Meade Plantation
Biscquit House (best breakfast)

The Hermitage (museum)
Andrew Jackson's home
(10 Miles West of Nashville)

Jack Daniels Distillery Tour
Lynchburg, TN (75 Miles South of Nashville)

Hi All,

Phoenix Cruisers Club in Nashville in September (10th to the 15th)!!! Nice. I have been researching RVs for about 6 months. I don't have an RV in my near future due to college tuition for two daughters. Wink However, PCs are on my short-list, particularly the 2552s. Maybe I could crash the party for an afternoon and some folks could show off their rigs!!! If you are in Bowling Green and  want a pit stop let me know ( Lot's of places to eat along with the Corvette Musuem, Lost River Cave, and Mammoth Cave to the north.

Nashville is a wonderful city to visit. Lots to see and do as documented in this post.

Pax, don't worry too much about the drive from N-ville to Chattanooga. I have driven it many times on my way to Atlanta. Not my favorite stretch, but just drive the speed limit or slower (than you would in a car) and stay alert.

Take care!
