4Hi Hannah-you get all types of travellers on here so it's always helpful to have an idea of what you like so you can get the best recs.
Nice food: What is "nice"? If you mean fresh and local, go to the *Nashville Farmer's Market*-there's a small collection of local restaurants in the central pavillion
Also, Lots of upscale options in the Green Hills and Brentwood sections
Beautiful Scenery: Take a boat to the cliffs on Priest Lake and see if you can find Party Cove
Walk the trails at Radnor Lake
Drive the Natchez Trace Parkway a little ways
Float down the Harpeth River
Museums: (surprisingly few in such a big city but there are some) Soak up the sounds of the Country Music Hall of Fame
See the only full size replica of the Parthenon and a small art gallery
Occasionally the Frist will have some good traveling exhibits (there are no permanent exhibits at Nashville's major art museum)
For some major kitsch check out the "museums" in Music Valley, right near the Opry
Music: The Grand ol' Opry and the Broadway Honky Tonks are a must, but they can get crowded with tourists. Besides that, try to catch a show at the Ryman (doesn't matter who's playing!), Bluebird Cafe, Station Inn, and Grimey's Basement. Also, the Symphony Hall is amazing! It reminds me of a classical European symphony hall. Then, after you've done those venues, (if you still have time) pick up a music guide and see what else is around.
Theatre: Not much in town, the major traveling shows go to TPAC in downtown and there are several dinner theaters, but nothing noteworthy.

5The Frist Museum of Visual Arts
Cheekwood museum and botanical garden
are my personal favorites.
Broadway is full of fun places if you like country music. Also the Country Music Hall of Fame.
