Introducing our all new Dixie Discovery – a unique blend of modern day Nashville Tennessee and the little area in North Alabama hailed as the Hit Recording Capital of the World – Muscle Shoals! We know that people LOVE free time, so Dixie Discovery combines four full days of sightseeing in Nashville at your own pace with three days of escorted touring in Muscle Shoals Alabama – Offering the best of both worlds and making sure you don’t miss a thing!


Music City USA is of course the ever evolving home of all things country music, from the very beginnings of the genre to the crossover hits of today’s newest Country trailblazers. The young music fans of today love to party ’til dawn all weekend in the newest bars and venues on Broadway which we know can make Downtown Nashville seem a little overwhelming to some visitors. So, here at Travelling Time we have produced this brand new itinerary to ensure that our guests see the best of Nashville & Muscle Shoals at a pace and time to suit them.

Muscle Shoals

Made up of Florence, Sheffield, Tuscumbia and Muscle Shoals, these four sleepy little towns in North Alabama, are just a short drive South of Nashville. Renowned studios like FAME and Muscle Shoals Sound recorded some of the world’s greatest musicians from Percy Sledge, Aretha Franklin, Rod Stewart to Cher, Hank Williams Jnr and many more… During the course of your weekend tour, we’ve included everything you need to get the most out of the experience. With visits to the studios that put Muscle Shoals on the world stage, local attractions, great Southern Cooking & Hospitality and best of all – you’ll be singing along and dancing to fantastic music each evening in some truly awesome locations!

Dixie Discovery starts in Music City on a Sunday, so you’ll avoid the weekend “party” crowds, and visiting on weekdays means that Nashville is far less crowded and the great country music is more traditional. All of the bars and attractions are open, but the lines are much shorter. On Broadway, Honky Tonks like Tootsies and Roberts serve up great music and reasonably priced food and drinks and a Tuesday night show at the Grand Ole Opry is not to be missed!

Then on Thursday the second part of your music filled vacation begins with a short escorted transfer to Muscle Shoals Alabama for an easy going weekend, with visits to some of the worlds most famous recording studios, sight seeing and enjoying live music in unique venues and locations.

If you want to experience the very best of Southern Music and Hospitality, enjoy Nashville at your own pace and make friends and memories that will last a lifetime – this is the trip for you, relaxed and easy – just like the South!
