Take A Look Around Cooter’s Place In Nashville (Pictorial)

Posted on Updated on

If you love nostalgia and kitschy fun, this place is for you. Part museum, part gift shop and a lot of 70’s tv fun. It’s owned by Ben Jones from the classic Dukes Of Hazzard tv show. From cars to posters and all other kinds of memorabilia you can relax and enjoy some throwback time here. Forget problems. Forget politics. Just enjoy cheesy, kitschy fun.

The day I went, I had multiple content pieces to work at different places plus a muay thai training session to run ( usually set them up with places when I’m going to be in an area). I should have been going quickly but I ended up hanging out here a looong time. Just to easy to get lost in it. Take a look at the pics and just hang out.

 

Definitely stop here and hang out the next time you are in Nashville. With the Opryland Hotel across the road and great food and live music next door at Nashville Palace ( see my posts on those also on the blog) you can’t go wrong. Also follow me on twitter @combatsportlife

Strolling The Canal District In Indianapolis pt1 ( details & tons of pictures)

Posted on

The canal district in Indy is awesome. It can be a romantic walk, a place for a great run or an afternoon of kayaking. Loads of incredible museums, monuments and the gorgeous canal. Connecting to White River State Park, the area is a true gem just wander. A stunning 17ft waterfall, fountains and the awesome architecture of the museums (the Eiteljorg is stunning, but that’s another post). 

    I’m going to eventually make this a 3 or 4 part section of my Indy series as the museums, hotels and architecture need their own. Today is mostly showing you pictures of just walking part of it. OK, with a short stop in the Cole Porter Room at the Indiana Historical Society!  You can rent paddle boats, kayaks or ride a gondola. You can also rent bikes,segways or even a Surrey.  All this sitting at the edge of downtown. It is both serene and urban hip at the same time.  A truly fantastic place for a romantic stroll. Hey I may be a torn old fighter, but I have a beautiful wife to keep happy! I know my romantic strolls. 

During this stroll we had been all over so getting a bit tired, we stopped on the Stardust Terrace at Indiana Historical Society and had something to drink. I love terraces on water and this one is gorgeous. Even if you don’t go in the museum part, stop here and hang out. Definitely go inside to the Cole Porter Room. It looks like the bar in the Waldorf. Pictures and other things but most importantly, someone who sings his songs with an electronic grand piano!!!  The lady when we went was phenomenal.  OK, now for the pictures. Talk more after the jump. 

































 If  The canal district is a must see if you get to Indianapolis. No matter where you live but definitely if you are in the Midwest. Romantic,educational and just fun. Plus it can be very budget friendly for a short trip.
