It always being a destination for attractions and events, like the museums, concerts, the Arts Festival/Regatta, and restaurants. Plus, I bought my latest violin there.
Thanks, Ruby. I am really surprised to hear about the Grand Ole Opry show. You would think that would be such a special occasion that people wouldn’t fall asleep…
