Belle Of Nashville

Nearly hidden in the suburbs of Nashville is a hidden treasure: The Belle Meade Plantation.

The interiors are beautiful, lit by simulated gaslamps. The interiors feature many rare pieces of history, including a first edition set of Dickens' books in the library. What's most notable, however, is the horses kept here. Bonnie Scotland (1853-1880) is at the top of a bloodline that includes more than half of all thoroughbred race horses, including Seabiscuit and Secretariat.

You could admire those studs and stallions while sitting on the front porch.
