So you get to Nashville, and you want to do all the cool things–the Hermitage, the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Ryman…but they all cost money. Want to save a buck or two? Stick with us–we’ll show you how to do it.
By far the best way to experience Nashville’s tourism is with the Music City Total Access Attraction Pass.
Here’s the deal:
For a flat $50 fee, you can visit the Pathenon (a full-size replica of the original in Athens) and your choice of four other local attractions from a list of 17. But here’s a little tip: some of the attactions on the list, regularly priced, are cheap-ish like the Belmont Mansion. However, several attractions, such as the Gray Line Home of the Stars Tour and The Redneck Comedy Bus Tour, will set you back $32-$40 regularly priced. So definitely use this pass to do the more expensive things. No matter what you do, even if you choose all four of the cheapest options on the list, you will save money, so you can’t go wrong.
You can find more information about the passes at their website. You can purchase tickets online, but you’ll need to pick up your tickets/lanyards downtown at the Visitor’s Information Center.
Here is what we recommend doing. Bear in mind, we’re not the biggest country music buffs, so these were the things we thought would give us a pretty good overview of Nashville.
Here are some other attractions the locals recommended that we didn’t get a chance to see:
Belle Meade Plantation
Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art
Grand Ole Opry House Backstage Tour
Historic RCA Studio B (famous recording studio of Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, and many more)
