Wild & Crazy Nashville, Tennessee!

Well, that's how I'd describe the main drag anyway!
Guess I wouldn't use that description for the Gaylord Opryland Hotel,
but if you've been to Nashville, TN on a Friday night walking down the main drag,
you totally know what I'm talking about!

We drove into Nashville from our week's stay on the beach in Perdido Key, Florida.
This was a good half-way home stop & a chance for our family to visit here,
since none of us had before.
We checked into our hotel & headed downtown to find all the action.
And action is precisely what we found!

 This area is called The District.
 There is one honky tonk after another, with lots of restaurants & shops thrown in the mix.

And people ... droves of people the night we were there.
Nearly every place had live music going full swing & the doors were wide open,
music & people spilling out into the streets.
You know what they say about Nashville.
Everyone here is trying to make it big if they haven't already.

It was pretty neat to see these iconic places.

And for those that couldn't make it on stage in one of the honky tonks, they just played on the sidewalks.
There were lots of these bands playing throughout town.

 We even ran into Elvis.

James decided that Elvis needed a picture with him.

This must've been the night for bachelorette parties cause we saw lots of girlies
with their sashes, crowns, & buttons on.

Had to snap a pic of the 'Batman' building.

Garrett liked this shirt, "keep calm & carry gun."
I like Garrett & his awesome tan.
You can tell we just came from from a whole week on the beach.

We were definitely entertained & we laughed our heads off at people.
James captured some pretty funny moments on video, but I'm not so sure that I should post those here ;)

We are planning to go back to Nashville & stay a few days ...
we'd like to visit some of the museums & all the historic places throughout the city.

I'll share pics tomorrow of our visit to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel.
Boy, is it beautiful & we were so glad we decided to go there.

Who doesn't love a good party?!
