Country-music buffs lured here by the Grand Ole Opry shouldn’t forget their tackle. J. Percy Priest Lake, Old Hickory Lake, and the Cumberland River are minutes from downtown; Center Hill is an hour west. Wade or float the Harpeth River for black bass or the Caney Fork tailwater for trout. Stop by the recently opened Bass Pro Shops for specifics. The Hermitage, Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art, Nashville Shores water park, and Opry Mills Mall offer something for the historical-, cultural-, and fun-minded. 800-657-6910;
