Music City, TN

Breakfast: Loveless Cafe

For over 60 years, Nashville residents have been waking up bright and early to head out to the Loveless Cafe for a made-from-scratch, Southern breakfast.  The Loveless Cafe cooks arrive at 3am every morning so that by the time you arrive (sometime after 7am) the biscuits are buttery and fresh out of the oven.  Get ready for what Martha Stewart called, “the best breakfast I’ve ever had.”

Lunch: Jack’s Bar-B-Que

Jack Cawthon began Jack’s Bar-B-Que on the corner of Broadway and 1st Ave after many years of decline on lower Broadway.  In fact, many people say that Jack’s began the revitalization of the area.  Since then Jack’s has relocated along Broadway, but the food has stayed the same—food that has drawn in people from all over the world on their visit to Nashville!

Daytime Activity: Tour of the Grand Ole Opry

The Grand Ole Opry began as merely a radio show in 1925, but has grown to be an American icon and the live entertainment phenomenon is now Nashville’s number-one attraction.  The Opry has been called everything from the “home of American music” to “country’s most famous stage.”  With past and current acts including Garth Brooks, Little Jimmy Dickens, Dolly Parton, and Martina McBride, it’s no wonder why a tour of the Grand Ole Opry is on our list of top things to do in Music City!

Dinner and Evening Activity: General Jackson Showboat

Spend the evening cruising down the Cumberland River and enjoying live entertainment.  The General Jackson, a reproduction paddle-wheel boat, is a throwback to the days of river travel.  The Heart of Tennessee: A Musical Journey evening cruise departs from the dock at Gaylord Opryland.
