Nashville, Day 1: Downtown

After the science museum, we braved the drizzle and headed downtown. The hubby & I are big country music fans, so our first stop was a peek inside the Ryman Auditorium.
Of course it wouldn't be a trip with the Shearer's if we didn't hit up at least one hockey rink, (we hit three in this trip, but that was the whole reason for the drive to Nashville...a tournament!). The home rink of the Nashville Predators was right downtown so we popped in there as well and got the kids a little souvenier from the pro shop. The boys LOVED this huge sign on the side of the arena. Noah & Jonah referred to the city as Smashville for the rest of the weekend.
And there were some popular buildings to photograph too.
My favorite was Union Station, which is now a hotel. Awesome!
