Things to Do in Nashville Besides Music


Since one of the purposes of my trip was to test out the new Chevrolet Equinox, I was able to explore the outskirts of Nashville a little — and I’m so glad I did! If you have access to a car and would like to take a short road trip outside the city (about 45 minutes from downtown), drive over to the quaint town of Leiper’s Fork. You’ll be greeted by replicas of The General Lee from The Dukes of Hazard and Barney Fife’s police car from The Andy Griffith Show. I happened to be in town during The Hunt, the annual antiques fair in Leiper’s Fork, but there are other antique stores in the area if you’re looking for a hidden treasure any other time of year. Get some yummy, no-frills grub at Country Boy — and come hungry! To start, we shared the fried green tomatoes and fried pickles. Both were perfectly battered and deep-friend with a juicy, crunchy texture. I asked the locals what to get off the menu, and they said the deep-fried bologna sandwich with shredded cheese. I don’t regret a thing.
