Full of energy, food and experiences, Nashville has grown to be a prominent travel icon. There is so much to see and do but here are some of our favorite suggestions to get you going!
Honkey Tonkin’ – Whether it’s Robert’s Western World on Broadway or the Hard Rock on 2nd Avenue, there is plenty of music to be found in Nashville. Whether you like Country, Americana or Rock Downtown Nashville promises to deliver. We recommend finding those little hole-in-the-wall gems like Santa’s and Printer’s Alley for some unique musical experiences. Stroll through music history and attend some unforgettable concerts at the Ryman, the Country Music Hall of Fame and more.
Gotta come for the food y’all – From Nashville’s Famous Hot Chicken at Prince’s to BBQ at Jack’s on Broadway, food is what they do in Nashville. Look for those off-the-grid spots like Peg Leg Porkers (you have to order one of their famous kool-aid pickles) or Daddy’s Dogs. Don’t forget the breweries like Tailgate, Jackelope and Tennessee Brew Works.
Sports – Sounds Baseball, Titans Football, Preds Hockey and that’s just the tip of the iceberg for sports in Nashville. Golf courses abound in the surrounding area while NASCAR and Indy Cars are drawing huge crowds to their events during the months of July and August.
St. Louis provides excitement, culture and entertainment all in one stop. It is growing in popularity due to its food and brew scene which is starting to gain national attention.
Get Your Kicks on Route 66 – Hop in a rental car and explore the largest city located on Route 66 between Chicago and L.A. What are some points of interest on Route 66 in St. Louis? The Donut Drive-In, The Route 66 State Park and the Eat-Rite Diner.
The Anheuser-Busch St. Louis Brewery – This brewery was opened in 1852 by German immigrant Adolphus Busch and is designated as a National Historic Landmark District. Experience the unique St. Louis culture through one of their public tours which takes you through the complex to view the making and packaging of products as well as giving 2 free glasses of any product for guests 21 and up.
Eating Classic in the Gateway City – St. Louis is known for having an array of cuisine and while we love the new, we also think classic St. Louis foods are the way to experience the city. Try some St. Louis-style pizza (thin crust made with Provel cheese instead of Mozzarella) from locally famous Imo’s Pizza or the mouthwatering St. Louis-style ribs found at Pappy’s Smokehouse voted one of the best BBQ joints in the country.
