The Belle Meade Plantation is very close to the Nashville City Center, but light years away. Very nice tour to take if you have the time. Actual tour of the Plantation home is 1 hour, with quite a bit of historical narrative that is informative. There are outbuildings as well that you can visit as a self tour. The session ends with a wine tasting, with wines available to purchase. There is a gift store and restaurant on site as well. The home is decorated for Christmas - not elaborate - but done during the period the home was in residence and nice to see. I highly recommend it.
