I am planning a 3 week trip across America next year 2015. I will be in Nashville for 3 nights.
I know this seems very organised to be asking now, however I really want to make the best of this trip and as we are on a budget I am beginning planning early, so we can book everything next January. I am a huge country music fan so for me this is going to be one of the most exciting places to visit. I would like to visit the following places - Country music hall of fame and museum, Grand Ole Opry, Musicians hall of fame and museum, Centennial Park and Ryman Auditorium. Then in the evenings a few country bars and if possible the bluebird cafe.
My question is as we are staying in budget accommodation for example, comfort inn type motels which area is best to stay in? There are some down-town but also in the Opry area. I know cabs will be needed but I was hoping to keep that to a minimum as we will have a rental car.
Also my husband is not a country fan so any blues bar suggestions would be welcome
Thanks in advance for your help
