While Nashville is known the world over as the home of country music, the Tennessee city also makes a fabulous destination for an unforgettable honeymoon.
There are plenty of romantic activities you can do and many delightful places to visit, and you can of course also catch some stomping live country music and dance to your heart’s content. If you are honeymooning in Nashville, here are six things you will want to consider doing.
1. Explore the City’s Culinary Delights with a Food Tour
Your honeymoon is all about leaving the world behind and engaging in indulgence with your new spouse, so you should explore the wide variety of delicious foods that are available at Nashville restaurants.
The best way of doing that is to go on a food tour. In addition to getting to sample the best food the city has to offer and finding out where the best restaurants are, you get to learn about the history of Nashville along the way.
You can try such delights as smoked ribs, chicken wings, deviled eggs, and ice cream. You could sample a couple of cocktails or a local beer too.
2. Enjoy the Romance of a Horse-drawn Carriage Ride
If there is ever a time to bask in romanticism it is during your honeymoon. So, as newlyweds, you simply must take a horse-drawn carriage ride.
With a knowledgeable driver, you can tour downtown Nashville and see famous spots like the Country Music Hall of Fame and Riverfront Park, while snuggling up with your partner.
3. Take in the View from Love Circle
There is an abundance of things to do in Nashville, but to continue with the romanticism theme, it is recommended that you and your new spouse head to the lush hilltop landscape of Love Circle.
At 745-feet above sea level, it provides an incredibly wonderful view of Nashville and is a popular spot for couples who want to enjoy a picnic or watch the sun go down.
4. Drift Over Nashville in a Balloon
While Love Circle is the highest point in Nashville, giving an unparalleled view, you can actually get an even better view of the city, and the rest of Tennessee, by going on a magical and unforgettable hot air balloon ride.
Spending time in the blue sky looking down at a gorgeous landscape with your loved one is the ideal thing to do on your honeymoon. And after the balloon has landed, you both get to enjoy a glass of champagne; the ideal way to end your romantic day in the sky.
5. Dance the Night Away on Nashville’s Honky Tonk Highway
If you want to enjoy live music, the Honky Tonk Highway is the place to go. The street is littered with great bars that have live acts.
Some of the most popular establishments are Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Robert’s Western World, and Legends Corner. Also, some venues provide free country dancing lessons in the evenings, which can make a great memory for you and your spouse for years to come, even if you are useless!
6. Tour the Music Sites of the City
From the Grand Ole Opry radio show to the Johnny Cash Museum, Nashville is full of venues, sites, and attractions dedicated to country music’s most famous stars.
