Cheekwood Art & Gardens, Nashville, TN
If you're looking for a fascinating attraction, and you're near Nashville, Tennessee, there's a really fun place to see some amazing botanical gardens, on beautiful grounds. It's called Cheekwood Art & Gardens, and in the middle of an affluent part of Nashville, you can see this and snap some superb photos. Visit the Cheekwood Mansion, too, which is an old plantation house with spectacular architecture (but don't take any photos inside! Hah!). If you're into enjoying a little bit of nature, as I am, this is a wonderful day-trip get-a-way, with plenty of space for little hikes in a romantic, flowery setting. And the wildlife? Birdwatchers, this is a must. I saw several species I'd never seen before. Delightful, and recommended!
