I wanted to go to Nashville for quite some time. From "Music City", it's quick to drive to more rural areas, which are full of beautiful scenery, homes, and churches. Very memorable was a hoedown on the Harpeth River (a half hour southwest of Nashville), which we attended on a sunny Saturday afternoon. We spent some time at our friend's favorite places in Nashville — the Nashville Zoo, Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, Centennial Park — as well as various landmarks and great restaurants/bars. We also visited another friend and her children in Chattanooga (in mountainous east Tennessee, crossing into the Eastern time zone). The kids helped me with my drawings in their yard and favorite riverside park.
