A highlight of any visit to Nashville is attending a performance at the Ryman Auditorium. At the very least, sign up for a self-guided tour. Few sights compare to the crescent-shaped wooden pews overlooking the stage where countless legendary artists have performed for over 125 years. Along the parameter are displays of costumes and other memorabilia during the heyday of the Grand Ole Opry. The iconic Ryman is justifiably recognized by the National Register of Historic Places and as a National Historic Landmark.
