Nashville is a beautiful city with great parks, restaurants and friendly people. Stayed at the Station Hotel. Very historic. I would go back to Nashville at any time (at least when it's not snowing), and apparently it doesn't snow very often.

The first morning in Nashville, we walked through the cool, shady, gorgeous Vanderbilt campus. The grounds are gorgeous and park-like. We enjoyed watching skilled craftsmen adding finishing touches to some new buildings as well as some renovation projects. Absolutely gorgeous and FREE!
