If you‚Äôre thinking about visiting Nashville, here are 5 best tours in Nashville you‚Äôll want to have on your must-see list.
1. Grand Ole‚Äô Opry House

Tourists can take in a show here or simply enjoy a tour as they learn all about this well-known landmark.
2. Belle Meade Plantation Tour
If the fast-paced music scene isn‚Äôt your cup of tea, Belle Meade Plantation offers a remarkable chance to step back in time and enjoy some of Nashville‚Äôs rich history. Built in 1853, this former thoroughbred farm has born witness to everything from Civil War battles to generations of families on its journey to the 30-acre tourist destination it is today. Enjoy a tour and grab a tasty bite to eat at the plantation‚Äôs restaurant.
3. Nashville‚Äôs Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum
If you love country music, a visit to this popular Nashville locale is an absolute must. The modern building is home to more country music memorabilia than anywhere else in the world, which means there‚Äôs truly something for everything at this gem. Stroll around at your leisure or take the Sing Me Back Home tour, which features an interactive journey through the history of this popular genre. And don‚Äôt forget to stop in the gift shop on your way out!
4. Tour the Ryman
Once home of the Grand Ole Opry (from 1943 to 1974), the Ryman Auditorium has been host to a wide variety of musical acts, from Aretha Franklin to Coldplay. The building was originally designed to be a place of worship (complete with pews for seating), which appropriately earned it the nickname ‚ÄúMother Church of Country Music.‚ÄĚ Visitors can enjoy a fascinating backstage tour and have photos taken on the legendary stage.
5. Lower Broadway
No visit to Nashville would be complete without a trip down the city‚Äôs notorious Broadway. Here the streets are lined with bars, clubs, stores and lounges where live music is always on tap. Many of the locales feature the same charm they did back when their clientele included the likes of Patsy Cline and Roger Miller. There are also plenty of diners serving up old-school classics and comfort food, some of which are open ‚Äėround the clock.
