Bonnie’s Buzzing About Nashville, Tennessee

Music, dancing, and that good ol’ Southern style – this week, it’s all about Nashville, Tennessee! 

 No trip to Nashville is complete without a visit to the Grand Ole Opry! See bands perform live, learn about famous musicians who got their start, and enjoy photo opportunities on the way in. It’s a must see! For more country music history, visit the Country Music Hall of Fame. See gorgeous performance costumes, records, guitars and more! Nashville has so much music history to enjoy.

Grand Ol’ Opry
For you outdoor lovers, I recommend taking a hike around Radnor Lake. The State Park area boasts plenty of outdoor trails and paths to explore the rolling Tennessee hills and forests. When you’ve had your exercise, head to Germantown for a delicious sausage link at  Von Elrod’s Beer Garden & Sausage House or Butchertown Hall. Delicious!

The Pinewood Social is another really cute spot to hang out! It’s a cafe, bowling alley, co-working space, and more. Remember, having an itinerary is nice, but sometimes travel can be the most fun when we explore! Just wandering around Nashville is a fun experience. Enjoy the street musicians, art galleries and shops as you wander through this Southern city, and eat all the cuisine you can!

Bonnie’s Buzzing About Portland, Maine

I love this gorgeous East Coast city on the water, and I’m here to tell you why Portland, Maine is the main event!

The first thing you’ll want to do is explore Portland’s Historic District. Nicknamed “Old Port,” you’ll witness historic building facades, fishermen displaying their daily catches, and an abundance of shops and restaurants. There will be many opportunities for cruises and boat rides, too. If you’re feeling adventurous, visit the Casco Bay Islands off the coast, which are accessible by ferry year round, offering visitors beaches and island activities.

If you really want to treat yourself, you can book a Private Lighthouse Sightseeing Charter on a Vintage Lobster Boat. Pass by four different lighthouses while your Captain tells you all about Maine’s history. After your day in the sun, catch an orchestral show at the Merrill Auditorium. There’s so many fabulous cultural activities to do in Portland.

Bonnie’s Buzzing About Asheville, North Carolina

Asheville, North Carolina! One of the sweetest Southern cities I’ve had the pleasure of visiting. Here’s everything you need to know for your next visit. 

One of your first stops in Asheville should be the Biltmore. This beautiful and historic Vanderbilt estate boasts its own winery, gardens and a 4 star inn. Tour the grounds and get a bite to eat while you’re there. If you’re still hungry, take a bite out of Southern Cuisine with the Eating Asheville food tour! Learn more about the history of the area, learn about up and coming restaurants and food trends, and more.

Biltmore Estate
 
Asheville has a bustling art scene, so be sure to explore the River Arts District. Every second Saturday, there are open sessions, classes, and art activities. It certainly won’t be hard to find musical entertainment in Asheville! You can check their music calendar for weekly events, and there’s even a guide on where to go dancing
 
River Arts District
 
The second most popular destination after the Biltmore is the famous Appalachian Trail. Stretching from Georgia to Maine, many of the trail’s miles are right in North Carolina. If you’re not much for wooded trails, explore Asheville’s Urban Trail! This self-guided trail is not even two miles, and weaves you through the cultural and architectural history of the city.
