We love celebrating our birthdays (if there was any doubt to anyone who has followed our birthday adventures over the years). Each year, I go all out with a birthday theme. And I have to admit, I had a lot of fun planning this year’s Tennessee road trip adventure with the theme of “going country” — driving from Memphis to Nashville and Dolly Parton’s theme park Dollywood.

You are watching: How far is nashville from dollywood

Having way too much fun inside the shop at the Country Music Hall of Fame on my previous adventure.


Shocker to no one — we’re not exactly your typical country western guys. But last year, I spent 24 hours in Nashville and I couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed it. Nashville has a thriving music scene, museums and great food. I got such a kick when I saw mac and cheese listed on menus as a vegetable. If there was any doubt that Tennessee would be the next birthday destination?

We recommend flying in the night prior and staying at the historic Peabody Hotel, right in the heart of Memphis. Today covers a lot of ground, and can be scaled back for those not quite as ambitious.

8:45 AM, Depart hotel and drive to the National Civil Rights Museum (open daily at 9 AM; we recommend spending at least 2 hours).This is one of the most important museums in the South — if not the country. The museum is located inside the historic Lorraine Motel, where MLK Jr. was assassinated. Exhibits continue across the road where escaped convict James Earl Ray shot Dr. King.

11:00 – 11:15 AM, Peabody Ducks at Peabody Hotel (11 AM; 5 PM every day).The Peabody’s most famous inhabitants are the ducks who march down from the roof promptly at 11 am each day, swim in the fountains, then return to their perch at 5 PM.We ended up skipping the ducks since we were completely engrossed by the museum.11:15 – 12:30 PM, Walk Beale Street. And see just how times you’ll sing/shout, “Cause I’m Walking in Memphis”? Kevin was ready to stop me after the 1st time singing the chorus!

12:45 PM, depart for Graceland (and join the 1 PM self-guided walking tour).We’re living proof that you don’t need to be a big Elvis fan to enjoy a day at Graceland.We recommend the “Elvis Experience Tour” ($61 per person) that includes an orientation film and an iPad audio tour through the house.And here is a fun fact: Graceland is the second most visited home in America. Only the White House receives more visitors each year. The tour is one trippy time machine — showing how the King lived (and how he changed music history).

Most of today will be spent walking downtown Nashville, and exploring the gigantic Country Music Hall of Fame. Even though we’re not big country music fans, we enjoyed its interactive exhibits and tracing how the music industry has evolved. 

9:30 AM – 12:30 PM, Explore the Country Music Hall of Fame.This monumental museum reflects the near-biblical importance of country music to Nashville’s soul. It’s a must-see whether you’re a country music fan or not.I recommend also signing up for the 10 AM tour of Studio B, where dozens of country and pop stars have made recordings… And even Dolly Parton accidentally drove her car through the wall.

12-1:30 PM, Lunch at Hattie B’s.I’m not sure I could ever eat any other fried hot chicken again after eating at Hattie B’s. Sure, it’s probably the most famous in town — attracting the most out-of-towners — but there is a good reason for that.Be prepared to wait in a line (especially if you’re visiting on a weekend). I ended up waiting in line for over 1 hour (in the blazing sun), while Kevin relaxed and read a book. He’s lucky it’s his birthday, just saying….

5 PM, After a full day at Dollywood, it’s time to head back to Nashville. It’s a 3 hour drive, but I was ready to sit and rest the legs.

7:30-8:30 PM, Before you get back into downtown Nashville, make a quick stop at the Opryland Resort.This hotel holds a special place for me. For YEARS, Kevin has been subjected to stories of our family vacation here — where we got upgraded to the presidential suite.Let’s just say, we earned it — the hotel accidentally gave us rooms with guests already inside. Twice in a row. It might have been traumatizing for everyone involved, but hey, that presidential suite was SO worth it!
