Nashville, Tennessee

What to See: No trip to Music City would be complete without some country, whether you spend a night listening to live music at the Bluebird Caf; tour RCA Studio B, where Elvis, Dolly Parton, and Roy Orbison all laid down tracks; or catch a taping of the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium, also known as the Mother Church of Country Music.

Where to Stay: If the Hermitage Hotel is Nashvilles most iconic accommodations, the Union Station Hotel, a converted railway station, is its most unique. Both are worth the trip.

What to Eat: Nashville hot chicken is, well, hotin both senses of the word. Popping up on menus across the country and deliciously spicy, the original hot chicken is best found at Hattie Bs and Princes Hot Chicken Shack.
