Nashville

Last weekend we took a long weekend and visited Nashville. We love experiencing new cities and decided that would be our Christmas present to each other this year.


Joseph LOVES Dave Ramsey and he is located in Brentwood TN, which is only 10 minutes outside of Nashville, so that was our 1st stop. Luckily, Dave was filming his radio show that day and came out during a break to meet everyone in the lobby.



Our next stop was Broadway Street in downtown Nashville.
It was a neat experience to walk down Broadway and hear all the live acts playing as we passed each restaurant and bar.


Beautiful tree!




Later that night we ventured back to Brentwood and also Franklin TN to ride around and look at the Christmas lights. 


The light show was unreal and so tastefully done.



The next day we walked around Downtown Nashville and Centennial Park:




I'm not really a country music person (besides Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood of course) but we had to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame while we were there:


We ended Saturday night with the Nutcracker! I was in love, Joe not so much :P


The 3rd day of our mini vacation we decided to drive halfway home so we stopped in Gatlinburg. We took a tram half way up a mountain to get a good view.


We then got on a ski lift to take us up higher. . .



And then took this slide back down to the bottom. Joe was filming the moment haha


Gatlinburg had great decorations for Christmas too!



 And yes, I tried Moonshine. I couldn't leave Tennessee without trying some! :)


 We had a great time exploring downtown Nashville. I'm sure it's awesome to visit any other time of the year but there was something about visiting at Christmas time that made everything seem magical.
