The ride on the river was pleasant viewing the rural lands outside of the city. Captain Jim was very nice and attentive to his guests including several children who were aboard.

From Our Editors

A captain licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard, Jim Steele’s more than 25 years of boating⎯including time spent at the helm of Opryland’s water taxis⎯comes in handy as he coaxes The Blue Heron, a specially built 40-foot pontoon, about the Cheatham Wildlife Management Area on daily tours. Out on the water amid soothing birdsongs and the burbles of river critters, Captain Jim can be found behind the wheel of the craft, exercising his chops as an entertainer as he regales his passengers with chuckle-inducing anecdotes and factoids about local flora and fauna. With the comfort and safety of his guests always in mind, Captain Jim equipped the Heron with a restroom and keeps the vessel stocked with a comprehensive library of life jackets to fit adults, children, and pet iguanas of all ages and sizes. Hitting an average cruising speed of 5 to 10 miles per hour, the Heron affords its passengers leisurely looks at area wildlife as it embarks upon all manner of tours, from gold-tinged sunset cruises to kids' adventures punctuated by the gleeful laughter of curious youngsters.

Nashville Guide

Nashville is known for being the country music capital of the world, but music isn’t the only thing that the city has to offer. With this Nashville guide, residents and visitors can discover some of the greatest attractions and restaurants that the city has to offer.

People looking for Nashville things to do involving nature and wildlife can find an abundance of walking trails for sights and destinations that are off the beaten path. Radnor Lake State Park is just a few miles from downtown Nashville, but the quiet atmosphere makes it seem like a world away. Visitors of the park will see deer and other wildlife roaming freely through the forest, and can walk out on the water to see fish and other aquatic animals in the lake below. Those who don’t wish to travel far from the city can visit Centennial Park which is right in the heart of downtown. The small lake has paddle boat rentals and a surrounding grassy area that is great for picnics.

There isn’t a shortage of dining options or things to do in Nashville after the sun goes down. The General Jackson Showboat provides an alternative to a regular sit-down restaurant and theater. The 300-foot boat has four decks and a two-story Victorian Theater right in the center. Midday and evening cruises with live entertainment and down home cuisine are offered throughout the year. People who are looking for comfort food in Nashville can find it in the middle of the city at Puckett’s Downtown. There is no need to leave the big city to enjoy the laid-back and comfortable feel of a hometown atmosphere. With Nashville deals like Happy Hour, two-for-one lunch specials, and appetizer discounts, diners can enjoy a nice home-cooked meal without breaking the bank. A guide to Nashville can only begin to show people how amazing this music capital really is.
