If you love American history as my wife does, you will love this play. You can walk the grounds and tour the mansion while getting a thorough history lesson on the life and times of President Andrew Jackson.

We did both Belle Meade and the Hermitage. If you are a history buff, go with the Hermitage. If you'd just like to see a beautiful estate, go for Belle Meade. Both were fantastic in their own way.
