The home of the National Football League's Tennessee Titans boasts a 69,000-seat, natural-grass facility. The stadium offers excellent seating, most along the sidelines. There are 144 luxury suites, 7,500 on-site parking spaces and 60 concession stands. If you are driving to the game, the easiest thing is to park downtown in one of the many garages/surface lots in or near the District, and then use the pedestrian walkway on Woodland Street.
For nearly a century this troupe of actors, singers and musicians has been entertaining children and their parents with popular productions and original plays. The historic Nashville Children's Theatre hosts eight productions each season, and students from local schools fill most of the seats. Weekend matinee performances give parents and other family members a chance to enjoy the shows with their children. The theater provides an excellent opportunity to expose children to the dramatic arts and entertain them at the same time. Ticket prices vary by show and seating preference.
The most authentic blues bar this side of Chicago is located in the 3rd Avenue office complex and strip mall. Wednesday night's feature house band, The Wooten Brothers, comprised of the insanely talented Victor Wooten (of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones) and his two brothers. The live music has another added benefit. Lines at the bar are very short, as everyone is near the stage listening to the tunes! Food is typical bar fare but still quite good. The burgers are excellent.
Known as one of the top studios in Nashville, the Historic RCA Studio B is where some of the music industries greatest hits were recored. With over 35,000 songs recorded here, not to mention over 1,000 of those being top American hits, this Music Row attraction is a bonafide Nashville landmark. Daily tours allow guests to get a firsthand look where the music, stories and the magic were made. Close your eyes and you can almost hear Elvis with his Southern accent or Dolly Parton belting out Jolene.
When you are looking for a little more than your average tour of the Music City, climb aboard the funniest bus in town. The Jugg Sisters are your hostesses and they will have you laughing and singing all afternoon. As you visit all the major attractions in the city, you will hear the satirical and very risqué commentary of the sisters while riding in comfort on their tacky pink bus. NashTrash Tours is not a very sophisticated ride, as alcohol is allowed to be consumed on the bus, so you might be best to leave the kids at home. If you don't mind the overall "hillbilly" theme, you're sure to have a grand time.
