I'll be headed to Nashville tomorrow morning for a week.  Mainly going to visit my brother, but am always looking for good (cheap) touristy stuff to do while we're there.  Any suggestions for a non-country music fan?

I'm not sure Mrs. Gratch would like that much.

I know.  I has hoping to hit either a Titans or Predators game while we were there, but they're both away.   icon_evil

Depends on what you like doing. Seems like there are options.

There's often someone decent (i.e. not Country) playing at the Wildhorse Saloon

I didn't realize you were a Nashvilleian, Toe... I'm in Spring Hill.

I lived in Nashville for 4 years in the late 90's. I thought it was a great place to live.

I'd recommend the Opryland Hotel.

Wait Jeff ... are you seriously recommending that someone go to a hotel as a tourist attraction.

Yes. I am.

A quote from their website:

Quote
You'll be amazed at the nine acres of indoor gardens, cascading waterfalls and an indoor river with its own Delta flatboat. Within this lush landscape, you'll discover fine dining and casual restaurants, unique shopping experiences, and a 20,000-square-foot resort spa and fitness center. And for late-night excitement, check out our latest entertainment adventure, Fuse Nightclub.

This luxurious resort is the flagship property of the Gaylord Hotels family. It features 2,881 stylish guest rooms, including 174 spectacular suites. Every room features high-speed wireless Internet access and two phones, including one cordless.

It really is something to see, and tens of thousands of tourists visit it every year, just to see it, not to necessarily stay there. Oh, and it's free - except I think you might have to pay for parking.

You aren't the only one that would do that.  Not relevant to the OP, but this place has 109 rooms, all uniquely decorated.

Well, I might be going to Nashville.  We're flying standby and are about to get bumped from our 6th flight today.  Been here since 6:30 a.m., and probably won't be able to get on a flight until midnight.

I learned a valuable lesson:  NEVER try to fly standby nowadays.

EDIT:  Yep, officially bumped from flight #6, and no chance to get on the red-eye either (how a midnight flight is oversold by 15 seats is beyond me).  There's two more flights we can try in the morning, and if neither one works, we're just going to have to scrap the entire trip.  Needless to say, I'm pretty damn bummed.  frown

If you do make it to nashville...

There's a pretty awesome mall near the grand ole opry, with an Aquarium restaurant - which is pretty much as it sounds. You've got a huge aquarium in the middle of the restaurant with sharks and a huge green eel, and a lot of fish. It's worth going to; my wife and I both had a blast eating there.

Even if you don't like country music (I don't), the grand ole opry is an experience worth going to.
