Your typical touristy destinations in Nashville include The Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry, and the Ryman auditorium to name a few. Bless their hearts, it's all so country! Not all of Nashville's treasures are hidden, and the old school gems are not to be missed, but Nashville has become a hipster mecca in recent years attracting record numbers of visitors. It's small enough to escape that big city vibe but large enough to find just about anything your heart desires. If you want an insiders take on a girls weekend in the Music City, do NOT miss these:
Miss Fit Academy
Spin. Strut. Twerk. Swing. Gyrate. Wigglewigglewiggle. If those verbs sound like fun then Miss Fit Academy is the place for you!! MFA hosts pole dancing, exotic chair dance, coyote cabaret, and aerial hoop parties. Be prepared to step to some exciting yet simple dances, laugh a lot, get to know your girls better than you ever thought possible, and maybe even learn something you can take home to your special someone! Regardless of whether you choose to fly, slink, spin or YEEEEHAW with us, this is easily the most fun you could possibly have with your girlfriends!

Take A Tour
Nashville is quickly becoming a hopping tourist destination and guided tours are sprouting up all over to provide for the masses. Our favorites are the Music City PubCrawl- a $15, 2 hour walking tour that frequents some of
downtown Nashville's hippest watering holes, and Nashville Pedal Tavern- a 2.5 hour, people-powered bar on wheels that takes your party on one of several routes around the city. Private tours on the Nashville Pedal Tavern will run you about $300.

Trivia nights are a super popular free activity around our city these days. The games are a great way to use your collective useless knowledge to win prizes. These games are often held in bars and we all know alcohol makes us experts in everything, or at least not care if we get the question wrong! So put away your cell phone, pick your night, and enjoy!
Sundays- Riverfront Tavern- 8:00pm
Kay Bobs- 8:00pm
On Mondays' open mike night, you never know who will get up on stage at the Bluebird Cafe. In a city filled with musicians, you could easily run into anyone from Vince Gill to Jack White to Justin Timberlake (a recent Nashville resident). The Foo Fighters' Dave Ghrol is known to just show up from time-to-time! Nashville is famous for spawning artists such as The Black Keys, Kings of Leon, Paramore, and Megan Trainor so "unsigned night" at The Bluebird is no joke. The Bluebird Cafe has live music every other night and reservations can be made online.
Just all of it. Nashville has some of the best food in the South. From down-home cheese grits to fusion food fit for fancy frivolity. Everybody has to eat, and even if these aren't attractions per se, they still should not be missed.
