Much like New Orleans, Nashville thrives on its unique music scene. There are plenty of bars, clubs, and dives to sit (or dance) in while you get to hear up-and-coming and would-be music stars. You can also check out the state capital, President James K. Polk's grave, hitch a ride on the Natchez Trace Parkway, visit the Country Music Hall of Fame or travel just a few miles out of town to Lynchburg, TN and check out the Jack Daniel's Distillery!
Way up near the dead center of the top of Alabama is Huntsville. Known as Rocket City, Huntsville features the US Space & Rocket Center, which has a museum and plenty of cool things for you and the family to check out. There's also three, yep, three historic districts to check out that feature architecture that survived the Civil War. If history isn't your thing, you can always hop the border into Tennessee and visit Lynchburg and the Jack Daniel's Distillery.
