Music is the beating heart of Nashville. It runs through its streets like blood through veins, keeping it alive for generation after generation to witness all it has to offer. There’s no better city in the world in which to introduce your kids to the magic of music, and luckily, there are thousands of things to do in Nashville with kids. Going to Nashville for a family vacation is one of those that will stick with them forever. In years to come, they’ll tell their own children about the first time they were introduced to Johnny Cash or Elvis.


1. Go Backstage at The Grand Ole Opry

Visiting the Grand Ole Opry isn’t just something you should do if you should go to Nashville. It’s something you should go to Nashville at least once in your life exclusively for. The iconic Nashville venue started as a barn dance in 1925 and grew to become one of the USA's most beloved stages. Its immortal stage has seen the likes of hundreds of artists over the years including Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Dolly Parton. Booking a post-show backstage tour is recommended for any visit. There you'll be able to get photographs taken of you with the stars or simply with the microphones. And who knows, maybe in a couple of decades, the kids will be up there themselves.
