Fodor's Expert Review Cheekwood Estate and Gardens

Greater Nashville Garden/Arboretum
At the center of this sprawling 55-acre botanical garden is a Georgian-style limestone mansion–turned–art gallery, enclosed by clipped lawns, terraced gardens, and an ancient-looking reflection pool. In addition to the collection of paintings and photographs inside the mansion, the Carell Woodland Sculpture Trail takes you down a 0.9-mile path of outdoor art pieces. There are seasonal garden displays, as well—including 150,000 blooming tulip bulbs in the spring and 5,000 chrysanthemums in the fall—so there’s always something new to enjoy no matter what time of year you visit.
