The oldest print shop in America opened in 1879. For decades, Hatch Show Print was the leading poster printer for circuses, vaudeville shows and sporting events. Today, it is located in the Country Music Hall of Fame and is best known for creating images of Grand Ole Opry stars, thousands of which line the shop's walls. Modern-day artists employ the same techniques that have been used since the 15th century, including printing works on site.
The exterior of the Cumberland Park can deceive you to believe that it is just another local park; but its several unique features makes the Cumberland Park nothing less than a popular tourist attraction. When the weather is hot, this is a place where locals come to cool off at the on-site sprayground. Children can be seen frolicking in the water while adults take time to unwind and relax. In addition to the sprayground, the Cumberland Park also has a wonderful green maze where amid all the fun rides children become oblivious to time. A climbing wall and an explorer trail also form a part of the Cumberland Park.
The city of Nashville boasts a unique and singular character that sets it apart from the other cities and towns in the United States. One of the reasons for this distinction is that the city's neighborhoods and areas are rooted deep in history and heritage. The Hillsboro Village, located a few miles southwest of the downtown area, is one such neighborhood that contributes immensely to the city's charm. The neighborhood started as a streetcar suburb, and gradually establishments like theaters, shops, restaurants, bars and more started sprouting up, increasing its popularity as an entertainment spot in the city. The attractions here are best discovered by foot, as the neighborhood is one of the most pedestrian-friendly areas in the city. The Hillsboro Village is also the venue for a plethora of community events, so plan a trip here when visiting Nashville.
In 1866, the Jack Daniels distillery received its license in the state of Tennessee to produce what has become the most famous southern sipping whiskey. This National Historic Site is located in the little town near a natural spring. Guided tours of the facility are offered daily. Combine your visit to the distillery with a walk through downtown Lynchburg; it features additional historic sites and several souvenir shops. If you go in September, join in the celebration of the city's founder in the downtown square. While enjoying the tour of the distillery, be careful not to sample the product. Oddly enough, this county is dry and the consumption of alcohol is illegal!
The Nashville Public Square spreads over 5 acres and is possibly the most visited spot in the city. With a great central location, this square has a colossal underground parking lot which serves both impressed visitors and court house employees. Large lawns and fountains add to the beauty and provide a beautiful backdrop, especially on concert days.
This legendary attraction is more than just a supernatural story. The Bell Witch Cave is an adventure not for the faint of heart. Explore the caves of the fabled bell witch and maybe even take a canoe ride while you are here.

Day time tours of the cave and cabin are available from 10:00a to 5:00p at USD12 for the cave tour and USD8 for the cabin tour. Special daytime and nighttime tours can be booked 48 hours in advance.
