3 Nights Atlanta - 4 Nights Nashville
Virgin Holidays' view
Satisfy your appetite for culture with a trip to Coca-Cola HQ, home to the world famous fizzy drink. Absorb Atlanta's charming neighbourhoods before singing your way down to the city that music calls home Nashville. From the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry where Elvis wooed his audiences to the honky tonks and neon lights of Lower Broadway, there’s no better place to explore the musical history of the USA.
Stop 1: Atlanta
Arrive in Atlanta and you’ll soon be swept up in its sea of civil war and civil rights movement reminders. But, beyond them, you’ll find attractions like 3,200 acre Stone Mountain Park, where adventure and nature team up to create the SkyHike® treetop adventure course, Summit Skyride cable car, and Geyser Towers® maze of bridges and tunnels.

Stop 2: Nashville
More than 150 live music venues line (and often spill onto) the streets of this self-proclaimed ‘Music City’. The heart of it all is Honky Tonk Highway, where sounds burst from bars day and night: the music’s free, but tips are welcomed. For more free music and sights, hit Lower Broadway, 2nd Avenue, Demonbreun Street, SoBro, and The Gulch.
Day 4-8: Experience Nashville
Nashville’s live music venues and old-music museums vie for that chart-topping slot. Before your music bar crawls, try landmark crawls of Music City Walk of Fame Park, Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum, Johnny Cash Museum, Grand Ole Opry House, and Music Row’s RCA Studio B, where Elvis laid down 230 tracks.
