Mary and I have been thinking about a four day weekend get-away and something to do for her "29th" birthday. We had a few places in mind; Jekyll Island, GA., maybe finally making it to Charleston, SC., or our favorite place Nags Head, NC. Instead we decided on something different, a trip to the country music capitol of the world, Nashville, TN.
Plans are just starting to come together, locking in our hotel at the Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown last night and securing a place for our Italian Mastiff Maggie, hopefully sometime today. Mary is also working out the care of our three boys Jake, Inky and George, either in a cat hotel or have a family member check in on them.
There seems to be a lot to see and do while in Nashville. Mary and I like to do the tours on the first visit to a new location and then if/when we return we can investigate a bit more on our own. With this in mind we found that Gray Line Tours is available and will pick up in the hotel lobby. We want to see the zoo, do the riverboat dining tour and the downtown discover Nashville tour.
We will be close to the waterfront and there will be plenty of good places to eat and music to enjoy. We are both looking forward to the time away from work and the chance to explore someplace new.
