ACCESSIBLE ATTRACTIONS: Nashville, Tennessee
Our ratings are...
Fully Accessible - You can access all of the attraction, with no problem, in any type of wheelchair.
Mostly Accessible - You can access most of the attraction, and all of the important parts of it, with your wheelchair.
Partially Accessible - You can access a good deal of the attraction but some parts are inaccessible and some important parts you'll miss.
Inaccessible - Kind of speaks for itself, avoid if you're in a wheelchair.
Here's Nashville, Tennessee...
Ryman Auditorium - Fully Accessible. There are wheelchair spots on the bottom level and in the balcony. The Grand Ole Opry broadcasts from here in fall and winter. It is a show not to be missed. Several parking lots are nearby with handicapped parking. If you park on Broadway or south of Broadway, know that you will be walking uphill to the Ryman and parking is expensive in downtown Nashville.
Country Music Hall of Fame - Fully Accessible. More of a staid museum attraction than other musically inclined venues here.
RCA Studio "B" Tour (included in an upgrade to the Hall of Fame admission) - Fully Accessible. Lift-equipped buses take you across town to Music Row to visit this wonderful and historic recording studio.
Ernest Tubbs Record Shop - Mostly Accessible. An extensive collection of CDs leads to a small stage in the back of the store where Nashville veterans sometimes play.
Gaylord Opryland - Fully Accessible. This immense hotel hides a large lagoon and atrium inside...several in fact...under acres of glass. It's a tourist attraction all in itself.
Loveless Cafe - Fully Accessible. Decent but not great food at this hugely popular cafe on the western outskirts of town. The biscuits are the big draw as are the weekly concerts out back on Wednesday nights.
