Nashville has been called Music City, and with good reason. Whether you want to hear some live music at the local bar or attend an all-star concert at the famous Bridgestone Arena, Nashville has something for everyone. No matter how you like to enjoy yourself, there are plenty of things to do in Nashville for both first-time visitors and long-time residents alike. Here are five of the best things to do in Nashville!

Take a tour of The Hermitage
Home of President Andrew Jackson, The Hermitage is an architectural masterpiece located in East Nashville. It's best known for its furnishings and décor inspired by French and Greek Revival styles. The home has been undergoing extensive restoration since 2007, with completion scheduled for 2015. For Spirit airline reservations, you can visit the Spirit Airlines official website. While you're there, be sure to check out The Hermitage mansion and Oak Hill Plantation (Andrew Jackson's farm).

Shop at Opry Mills Mall
What began as a way for country artists to sell their products has evolved into one of Tennessee’s most impressive malls. While you’re there, see live performances from some of Nashville’s hottest stars at the historic Grand Ole Opry or catch a flick at one of six theaters. It may be Music City, USA, but it sure doesn’t hurt having your own amusement park and movie theater right in your backyard. Did we mention that the mall also has tons of great restaurants where you can refuel after all that walking? They might not make music in Nashville, but they sure know how to make good eats.

Enjoy lunch at Pinewood Social
Pinewood Social is a restaurant and social club where you can enjoy not only a delicious meal, but you can also play bocce ball on a massive rooftop court or watch live music. This Nashville hot spot is more than just a place to eat, it’s an experience that every visitor needs in their travel diary. While visiting Pinewood Social you must try their chicken tacos and truffle fries. Trust us, they are truly heavenly! Our favorite part of Pinewood Social is that we can bring our dog along for lunch; if you love dogs then we suggest taking your pet along too!

Listen to live music at The Bluebird Café
The Bluebird Café is a place you can go to catch some local music. If you're looking for an authentic Nashville experience, there's no better place than The Bluebird Café. Many artists that have played here have gone on to become famous country singers, like Carrie Underwood, who launched her career at The Bluebird in 2001. Whether it's for a family trip or bachelor party, make sure you include The Bluebird Café on your list of things to do in Nashville. Make reservations ahead of time and arrive early if you want a seat close enough to see any detail on stage.

Get lost on Nolensville Pike
This stretch of road runs through a suburban area in between Highway 70 and Nolensville Road, which may seem surprising if you’re used to only visiting Downtown or Midtown. There are some fun shops here and lots of interesting restaurants worth checking out while exploring Nolensville Pike. In fact, there are just as many great places here as anywhere else in town – maybe even more! This is also a great place for visitors who love indie music since there are quite a few record stores along Nolensville Pike.
