A Segway ride through the heart of downtown Nashville is the perfect way to get the lay of the land or just experience the thrill of gliding along on a human transporter. Your one-hour session begins with a thorough lesson on riding before venturing out into the streets to the entertainment district. You’ll see Schermerhorn Symphony Center, Country Music Hall of Fame, the Ryman Auditorium, and much more. The tranquil beauty of Andrew Jackson's Hermitage is steeped in history from room to room, to the gardens and grounds, and on into the slave quarters. The rooms offer a portal into the daily lives of Jackson and his family. Considered to be the best-preserved early U.S. presidential home, today it's a combination of Federal and Greek Revival styles. Reserve your package online today with City Sightseeing!

    Description

    If you have never ridden a Segway, here's a great opportunity to take a half hour lesson before breezing through the entertainment district of Nashville. You'll feel like a pro before you set out, and your excursion takes you past the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Ryman Auditorium, Schermerhorn Symphony Center, Bridgestone Arena, and Ascend Amphitheater. You'll see more of Nashville in less time by hopping on this novel transportation device.

    Andrew Jackson, the 7th President of the U.S., was a lawyer, landowner, war hero, senator, family man, and controversial villain all rolled into one person. Today the tranquil grounds of his family home, the Hermitage, is open to the public and offers a peak into the past in a way that is seldom seen elsewhere. Originally built in the Federal style, it was renovated to include Greek Revival as well, and you can walk into each room to admire the architecture and imagine the family gathered around. The gardens and grounds are especially beautiful.

    The Hermitage of today recognises that slavery was the source of Jackson's wealth. With their stories untold for so many years, archaeologists began in the 1970’s to unearth fragments of their lives and today more than 800,000 artifacts have been discovered and catalogued, enriching our understanding of the role of slavery in U.S. history.
