Rediscover Nashville

With New Book 100 Things to Do in Nashville Before You Die, 3rd Edition

Whether you’re staying in town this summer and looking to compile your dream summer bucket list, or you need to update your list of favorite go-to spots to give out of town guests an authentic “Nashville experience,” Tom Adkinson’s new book, 100 Things to Do in Nashville Before You Die, 3rd Edition has you covered.

Having been in Music City since his family moved here in the late ‘50s, longtime Nashville resident Adkinson, has had a front row seat to experience how the city has grown and evolved over the years. As a former assistant travel editor at Southern Living and now currently the travel writer at the Knoxville Daily Sun, Adkinson has once again put pen to paper in this third edition of his book to showcase some Nashville favorites.

“I want people to explore and enjoy Nashville,” says Adkinson. “The book is a guide for tourists, newcomers and even natives. I love it when a native Nashvillian says to me, ‘I didn’t know about that place’ or ‘I’ve been meaning to go to that venue, and now I will.’”

Divided into well thought-out sections, this book categorizes some of the best things to see and do in Nashville. Adkinson also includes sections that feature “Activities By Season,” as well as suggested itineraries based on a variety of themes such as “Date Night,” “Right Downtown,” and “Let History Enlighten You.”

With everything from a list of must-try meat-and-three restaurants to some of the best stargazing events, art crawls, and historical landmarks, 100 Things to Do in Nashville Before You Die, 3rd Edition has a little bit of something for everyone. “There are five categories – food and drink, music and entertainment, sports and recreation, culture and history, and shopping,” Adkinson explains. “The book leads you to Nashville’s oldest restaurant, plenty of options for good music (including two places to howl at the moon), places for wilderness hikes while still in the city, the site of the worst train wreck in U.S. history, and great places for Nashville gifts and souvenirs.”

In addition to discovering some spots to explore around the city, readers will learn some history and Nashville fun facts while reading this book, such as the story behind how Nashville’s hockey team got its name.

Whether you’re a Nashville native, new to town, or just visiting Music City, 100 Things to Do in Nashville Before You Die, 3rd Edition is a must-read guide to Nashville fun and culture.
