Museum Perks

I may have previously mentioned my minor traveling disorder characterized by this overwhelming urge to make whatever city we’re visiting my new Home. It just so happens that Nashville happens to be one of those cities that causes those symptoms. It seems peaceful somehow; perhaps it is the hills which hide the chaos that is apparent in other cities. The climate is mild, comparatively speaking anyway; I mean, it’s not Africa, but it’s not Canada either. And it’s far enough south that you can still order sweet tea at any restaurant, and they won’t look at you like you’re from Neptune. I also really enjoy the city’s attractions—not the country music because I’m not a big fan—but the landmarks like the Opryland. The mall which sits beside the Opryland is great too. In fact, the Opry Mills Mall is far superior to Atlanta’s Mill mall. Their children’s museum too surpasses Atlanta’s.

Speaking of the children's museum, about six months ago, we finally gave in and purchased our first museum membership ever. I chose Atlanta's Imagine-It sight unseen because I'd heard it was good, plus the other children's museum we had been to in Chattanooga was extraordinary. When we finally visited, though, I was not at all impressed. So I began to doubt my choice. Until today.

Today while Mark visited customers, we took on the Discovery Center in Murfreesboro. We had a great time! Two levels of activities to spark the imagination and use up the energy of any young boy or girl, PLUS nature trails surrounding the center. Definitely makes the museum membership worth it!

Apparently I have the disorder too! And Nashville is one of those cities I've been to numerous times and always thought I could live there. And I even like country music. As long as I can still have my 80's rock....
