We love history and are planning to visit in March. We already plan to check out the Hermitage and Polk's grave. How do you get a tour of the capitol? What are some must see historic locations?

while you are at the capital, be sure and visit the state museum which is really pretty good and has a lot of history in it. Bicentennial Mall is also a nice place to stop by and doesn't take long.

Would definitely recommend a tour of The Hermitage. Great & informative tour!

Also, The Parthenon is fun to tour too & Centennial Park (where the Parthenon is located) is a nice place to explore if the weather is nice.

The historic downtown Franklin area is a really cool place to visit. Franklin is about 30 min drive from Nashville area. Some fun stores in the downtown Franklin to shop at and some historic locations there that I would recommend touring is The Carnton Plantation & The Carter House

Hope you have a fun trip!
