Nashville has many things to offer, from interesting venues to parks to museums. What are the 3 places that would make for a great visit, though? What are the landmarks or the fascinating places to go to when you visit Nashville (or even if you were born there and would just like to explore your city a bit more)?

In this article, we're going to explore exactly that. Here are the 3 fascinating places that you can discover in Nashville!

Ryman Auditorium

This list definitely needs to be started off with the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, which is rated as number 1 out of 250 things to do in Nashville on Tripadvisor - this only proves the attraction is popular and absolutely worth the visit.

Ryman Auditorium isn't just an ordinary music venue - it apparently plays a huge role when it comes to country music and music in general. The official website is very clear on this:

"When you walk through the doors of historic Ryman Auditorium, one thing becomes clear right away: this isn’t just another nightly music venue, and it’s so much more than a daytime tourist stop. This place is hallowed ground. This is the exact spot where bluegrass was born—where Johnny Cash met June Carter, where souls were saved and a slice of history was nearly lost. It was right here that country music found an audience beyond its own back porch..."

What's more, Ryman Auditorium was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971, and it's also considered to be a National Historic Landmark. One of its former names was for example "Grand Ole Opry House".

If you're into music or just interested in seeing such a significant landmark in the realm of country music and Nashville itself, definitely do give the Ryman Auditorium a try. It's located at 116 Fifth Ave. N in Nashville.

Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Speaking of music, we have the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in the second place. As well as the Ryman Auditorium, this institution focuses on American country music - it researches, examines, and preserves it. It's also one of the biggest centers with this specialization in the world. And it's right in Nashville!

There are supposedly over 2.5 million artifacts and many interesting collections and exhibits, as well as school programs.

The mission of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is described on the official website thus:

"The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum exists to preserve, celebrate, and share the important cultural asset that is country music. We're caretakers—dedicated custodians of this enduring art form."

Some of the members of the Hall of Fame include for example Roy Acuff, Eddy Arnold, Bill Anderson or Deford Bailey. If the museum sounds interesting to you, you can visit it at 222 5th Ave S in Nashville.

Andrew Jackson's Hermitage

Andrew Jackson's Hermitage is a presidential home that the seventh President of the United States, Andrew Jackson, owned and lived in. It's also a National Historic Landmark.

The website of the museum claims:

"The mission of the Andrew Jackson Foundation is to preserve the home place of Andrew Jackson, to create learning opportunities and to inspire citizenship through experiencing the life and unique impact of Jackson."

On the grounds, you get to explore the garden, the mansion itself, and also Jackson's Tomb. The place is opened Thursday-Monday from 9 AM till 5 PM. For anyone interested in visiting - the Hermitage is located at 4580 Rachel's Lane in Nashville.

Final Thoughts

These are the 3 fascinating places you can visit in Nashville - but don't worry, there's more! Nashville has many amazing things to offer, so if you're thinking about visiting, don't hesitate to find out more about this wonderful city.
