Nashville you stole my heart {Part 2}

Day 2 Continued: After eating at Merchants Restaurant we walked around a bit til we found ourselves at The Listening Room Cafe we didn't have tickets so we had to wait in line for awhile. When we finally got in the atmosphere was awesome. The show had already started so we missed a few moments. That night was Elise Hayes  and friends. It had a very intimate vibe throughout the whole place. I like those kinds of concerts. I fell in love with a few songs.

Day 3:  Finally time to do a tour. I got tickets for the Nashville Music Attraction Discount Pass 
which we also used for the Johnny Cash museum. It was totally worth it. For less than a hundred dollars we got tickets to the Country music hall of fame, RCA studio B, Johnny Cash Museum, Ryman Auditorium, coupon book for the Opry mills mall, and a food voucher for the Hard Rock Cafe. We did get the optional add-on for the Ryman Auditorium to go backstage. I highly recommend this tour. It has more bang for your buck for sure!

We caught the free shuttle at the Country Music hall of fame to RCA studio B.
A lot of awesome stories at that place. My favorite was the story of how Dolly Parton wrote "I will always love you'. Click here to read about my special experience at RCA studio B

At Ryman Auditorium we weren't allowed to take pictures on the backstage portion of the tour. I just took a couple shots in the building. I love the old architecture and the natural light is so dreamy!

Since it was this girls birthday she talked me into riding bikes around the city. I know the saying something about how riding a bicycle is easy even if you haven't done it in awhile. Well, let's just say I was struggling. The bike was a little big and I'm short and some stranger even had to give me a push. But at least we have funny memories from it. I even accidentally left my lens cap in the bike. Prayed it might still be in the basket the next day and it was! Shows how there isn't much crime in Nashville right?

At first I thought there was a real Highway 65 from the show Nashville. But after I googled it it was just a filming location. Still pretty cool!

Our Last Day in Nashville. We had gotten 2-day hop on hop off tickets from Old town trolley tour
and it was the last day to use it. I've used a hop on hop off tour twice now and it really is worth it.  You have transportation all day long and it stops all over the city. We were able to get this last visit in before our flight home. We went to Marathon Motorworks which has a lot of fun little shops. Not to mention a cool Nashville sign. I was so happy we got to get a picture in front of one.   

I really see myself living in Nashville one day. Since we are closer now I plan on visiting as much as possible so I can get an idea on where we want to plant some roots. To check out my other trip to Nashville click here and here. What's your favorite thing to do in Nashville?
