The city, the state capital, offers plenty for music lovers to do, such as visit the Country Music Hall of Fame, drive past the homes of country music stars and attend a performance at the Grand Ole Opry. However, music isn't the only thing Nashville has to offer. You can also visit Andrew Jackson's home, "the Hermitage," tour the Tennessee State Capitol building and even take a General Jackson Lunch Cruise down the Cumberland River.
