If it wasn't so cold, Sparky would take her Sea Eagle out on the lake. Since when does cold stop Sparky from getting outdoors and getting exercise? When there's a really stiff wind blowing...like 20-25 mph. winds. Sparky can get out on her bike and ride around the campground a few times, or get out on the roads outside the park....
We are close to I-40, and about twelve miles east from downtown Nashville.....So last night, we decided to hit one of the top ten attractions in Nashville--the Wildhorse Saloon. This is one of Nashville's top entertainment venues, and it was pretty amazing! It's a three story warehouse converted into a 66,000 square foot live music and dance destination. They are famous for their fried pickles, but we didn't try any. They have been involved in more than 4,000 TV shows and tapings, so it's a great place to experience Nashville music. It's located near the famous "music row" on Second Avenue. We listened to a country western performer by the name of Jami Grooms, and he was great! The food was good, the entertainment wonderful, and there's line dancing lessons offered about every hour, so a chance to get up and shake your booty, something Sparky always likes to do! (And she did! says E.)
In case you are wondering what the top ten list of things to do in Nashville is, here it is according to Trip Advisor:
Back to the Wildhorse...Sparky had a flat iron steak, and notice the ticket.....She got it the way she wanted... :-)
We had a fun time and plan to go back again this evening to downtown Nashville, to a different venue...There's so much to see and do, but we only have three days....Eldy has seen and done a lot here over the years, so we probably won't do the typical tourist things while we are here--Andrew Jackson's The Hermitage, the Country Music Hall of Fame...But we will take in a couple of things, get a taste for "Music City" then head our way to Gulf Shores, AL, our next destination for the month of November. See ya later, partner!
Nashville is definitely a fun place-enjoy!ReplyDelete

Nice campground; We're going to try our first NPS camp at Ft Pickett in January to practice for many, many more long-term stays at electric/water only sites like this one.ReplyDelete
Looks like a wonderful campground, enjoy Nashville.ReplyDelete
Are you watching the new tv series Nashville? They go to a bar there called the Bluebird Cafe. It's been on the show a few times and evidently a good place to go. Have fun. Wish we were there...oh maybe I don't...it's too cold. :)ReplyDelete
We just left Nashville a few days ago. Our favorite music experience was at The Bluebird Cafe. A local musician also recommended a club called 3rd and Lindsley for a taste of real Nashville, but we didn't make it there. Have fun and don't miss an evening at the Florabama when you are in Gulf Shores.ReplyDelete
Great post! Planning on Nashville trip in the spring. Have a 45' motorhome. You mentioned tightness of the roads at the campground. Do you think we can maneuver ok? Not worried about the light branches.ReplyDelete
I thought it was very narrow on the turns, but we were working our way around in the back of the park..Eldy says, if you take your time, it should be ok. Definitely unhook before navigating to the site. There are sites closer to the front entrance that are much easier to get into.Delete
That is one of our favorite COE parks!ReplyDelete
Not having a partner who can drive at night means I miss out on those great after dark venues. :( Mooing? That's a little too rare for me. :)ReplyDelete
