We decided to stay an extra day in Nashville area to avoid bad weather up north. Found Belle Meade through reviews on TripAdvisor. It exceeded our expectations! Wonderful property that appeared to be fully restored, though we understand they are still working on it. The costumed guides did a great job explaining the history of the place, and we could see they are making an effort to tell the stories not only of the white Plantation owning families, but also of their enslaved African American workers. Lots of horse racing history as well. The restaurant food was great, and there was also a small shop that sells ice cream and chocolates. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend Belle Meade!
