I admittedly knew nearly nothing about Andrew Jackson before visiting so choosing to spend my "touristing time" here instead of at the many other places to visit in Nashville was a bit of a leap of faith. I'm glad I chose The Hermitage. The combination...More

We only took the general admission, but the audio machine you can use for a self guided tour was sufficient in my opinion.

They sell beverages at several locations so no need to pack your own. The length of the walk is up to you. For just the house and gardens probably less than 1 1/4 miles. Is tour all of the hounds maybe 3 miles?
