Nashville - Four days ending Easter Sunday

Three adults (all in the "mature" demographic) going to be in Nashville from April 17 - 21. We're staying close to downtown, with a car. Already have tickets for Grand Old Opry, so what else would folks recommend. Maybe a Sunday brunch place? Going to get hot chicken, of course.

That other thread covers most everything. Sunday brunch places change, though, since we have so many restaurants opening all the time. You cannot go wrong with any of the restaurants owned/operated by this group, with Chaatable being my favorite. Or if you want something more traditionally "Nashville", Loveless Cafe is always great and the drive over there is really pretty!

Also, be aware that the Grand Ole Opry is not the Ryman and vice versa. They are roughly twenty minutes or more away from each other. The Ryman is downtown and the Grand Old Opry is at Opry Mills. Make sure you read your ticket carefully and know which one you are going to. I was a NYE show at the Ryman and there were quite a few very, very disappointed John Prine fans who discovered this fact at the door and had no way to get to the Opry.

Checking your dates, Patty Griffin is playing the Ryman the night you get in and Opry Country Classics is playing that Thursday. It is the Holy Mother Church of Music, so if you can make an effort to see a show there, I'd pick that over the Opry any day.

If you like art, the Frist Art Museum is usually worth a visit.

The Parthenon is an attraction, a very specific local history museum, and an art museum in one and there may also be events going on at the park that it's located in.

if you like tea, go to High Garden. Fantastic house blends, mellow environment perfect for chilling out and chatting.

We're 50, with a 12 year old. We just returned from Nashville last weekend. Our favorite part of the trip was for sure Cheekwood Estates Garden and Museum. I was a little sad I wouldn't be there that same week you'll be there, because the tulips will likely be in full bloom at that time. If it's a nice day, go, bring (or buy) a picnic, and have a glass of wine on the lawn. Maybe spend some time driving around the surrounding shi-shi neighborhood, Belle Meade, and/or walking at the nearby Percy Warner Park.
