Grand Ole Opry

The Grand Ole Opry, an American Icon and Nashville's number one attraction, is known for creating one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences for audiences of all ages. It's where unforgettable moments happen every week...moments like the night Trace Adkins revealed a tweet inviting his pal Blake Shelton to become a member of the Opry. With country music's new stars, superstars, and legends live on stage, you never know what'll happen next. See the show that made country music famous.

Because my wife and I toured Nashville over the last two days I decided not to pay the 27 dollar entrance fee but just did the above stated things here. I had paid enough in entrance fees the last couple of days but got a sense of what this place was all about by touring some of the building without doing the guided tour. I walked the grounds and shopped in the Gift Shop. It is certainly a grand place were big name acts plus up & coming stars play on this stage. I enjoyed it here by just doing what I did here today without costing me a dime expect the cost of a t-shirt to take home back to Canada.

Historic Mansker's Station Frontier Life Center

This fort, built in 1779, is staffed by costumed staff who explain the history of the region's earliest settlement.

I spent time at the historic Mansker’s Station and it was a great experience. If you love history, this is a must see stop. The Station portrays tow significant time periods in Tennessee’s History. The Fort is an authentic replica log station that was built in the early 1780’s and the Bowen House, which is also close by, was constructed in 1787 by Captain William Bowen and was the birthplace of Tennessee Governor William Bowen Campbell.

From early March till early December are the hours of operation, Monday-Friday. Rates are reasonable. Children 6 and under are free.

Bring your camera for there are tons of photo ops.

This place is a good place to keep my son busy and entertained for the entire day. Lots of bounces and we always get the managers special for lunch to save money. The special is a hot dog or pizza, candy and a drink for $3.99. I always take him early before it gets busy in the late afternoon before the big kids get there .

great place to have fun

Historic Rock Castle

Reviewed By 82lelandp - Hendersonville, Tennessee

The draw is the historic home made out of local rock quarried near by but there is much more to the visit. The house sits like a beacon overlooking Old Hickory Lake and the grounds draw you in to another time. You must tour the house, walk the trails and experience the peace and quiet! In addition to the history, we have enjoyed the local songwriter's nights, Nashville Symphony and a recent fish fry. Don't miss the Danile Smith Days or any of the period events held throughout the year. You might even catch a wedding or music video!

Larry's Grand Ole Garage & Blue Grass Music Park

Reviewed By Stephanie C - Allensville, Kentucky, United States

Well, I am 44 and I loved this! There is no drinking and no smoking (smoking is allowed outside) and it is good clean family place. The owners came right up to us when we came in to introduce themselves and give us a brochure and make us feel welcome. Everyone eventually stopped by our pew to say hello. Children who are well behaved are welcome too and my 9 year old loved it. My one year old granddaughter was welcomed by everyone too, but we did take her outside walking quite a bit to keep her from disturbing the music. She finally fell asleep though and happily slept through the rest of the event. It is free but they do pass a jar around for donations (just to keep the lights on). I happily donated. I will definitely be going back. If you like blue grass style and old time music and some inspirational music, go check it out. One man I met wrote and sang a song called "The Part Time Undertaker" and I got a laugh out of it.

Amqui Station and Visitors Center

About Discover Madison, Inc.-Amqui Station and Visitor's Center: Discover Madison, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to celebrate, educate, promote, and preserve Madison, Tennessee through the historic Amqui Station, a 1910 L&N Railroad station which was saved from demolition by Johnny Cash.

This is a local museum and meeting place. It contains the old Amqui Railroad Station building, a new building with restrooms and two covered areas outdoors. There is some parking and it is right next to the railroad for atmosphere. The old Rudy's Farm Country Sausage boy statue is in the yard. It shows a small boy in coveralls with a fishing pole over his shoulder and his dad's hat on as if he is headed to the river to fish. Rudy's Farm Country Sausage was a large Madison, TN business went out of business when their union went on strike and refused to come to an agreement with the family owned management. The Rudy family is and was a local benefactor for many charitable events and funds. They were a large presence in the Madison area, including their herd of Bison which were 30 years ahead of the conservation movement to save the Bison in the U.S. The Amqui station was moved from its original location to this small park. There are historical pictures on the walls showing Madison, TN highlights and they are changed regularly to rotate the collection. Football heroes, local heroes and railroad memorabilia. The covered areas are used on Sunday afternoons in the summer for a Farmer's Market. There are fresh produce and other food related displays and a musical presentation each Sunday afternoon. The food is truly local, including Lone Oak Farms fresh vegetables and fresh fruit from an orchard in neighboring Gallatin, TN. Lone Oak Farms has bamboo and other ornamental trees and shrubs for sale at the Farmer's Market. Neely's Bend Organics has fresh vegetables, seedlings, mushrooms and foraged food. Johnson's has locally harvested honey and products. The people are friendly and the produce is inexpensive. http://www.amquistation.org/farmers-market Use of Food Stamps is encouraged and buys double the produce for the face value. The Amqui name has two supposed origins. One is that it is an old Indian name--nobody knows for what and the second is that everybody would remark on the short train ride from Nashville, saying that was "damn quick" which eventually became shortened to "Amqui." The Visitor's Center and Amqui Station is located adjacent to the Madison Branch Public Library. There is a small exhibit honoring Johnny Cash.
