Plan Your Trip: What to do While Visiting Nashville for SDPA Fall 2023


When sessions, late-breaking research, and more conclude at SDPA Fall 2023, there is no shortage of things to do in Nashville.

The 2023 Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (SDPA) Annual Fall Conference begins today and ends on October 29 in bustling, music-filled Nashville, Tennessee. After spending your day networking with dermatology experts and attending informative sessions at SDPA, use the list below as a small guide to just some of the many sights and sounds of Music City.

1. Music, music, and more music

Nashville is dubbed "the Music City" for an abundance of reasons, and there is plenty of live music and odes to famed country musicians within the city. Visit the famed Grand Ole Opry, also known as country music's biggest stage, for a daytime backstage tour or an evening of live music with big-name country stars. Or, if you're a music fan and a history buff, plan a stop at the Country Music Hall of Fame, Johnny Cash Museum, the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum, or the National Museum of African American Music.

2. Authentic Nashville hot chicken (and other eats)

You might be able to grab a bite of "Nashville hot chicken" to eat anywhere, but can you really call it authentic if not from Nashville itself? Dive into one (or more) of the city's finest and most beloved eateries for a taste of classic Nashville. Visit the Food Network's complete list of top places to eat in the Music City here.

3. Gardens, greenery, and parks

If you forgot to pack your passport, never fear. In Nashville, you can visit the Parthenon without a full flight and trip to Greece. Nashville's Centennial Park is equipped with an exact-size replica of one of Ancient Greece's most famed architectural wonders. While you are there, take a stroll through the rest of beautiful Centennial Park. If even after a long day of conference sessions, indoor greenery is more up your alley, visit the Gaylord Opryland Gardens (situated right near the Grand Ole Opry for a 2-for-1 visit), where you can bask in 9 acres of more than 10,000 tropical plants.

4. Historic sites

SDPA's summer conference was held in historic Boston. History buffs, never fear. Nashville is home to plenty of opportunities to learn and delve deep into the city's rich history. Plan visits to the Tennessee State Capitol, Tennessee State Museum, Belmont Mansion, Fort Negley, and more.

5. Broadway

Luckily for attendees of the SDPA conference, Broadway is just a sidewalk away. The conference site is conveniently situated on Nashville's famed Broadway, a thoroughfare running through the heart of the city, packed with restaurants, nightlife, and more.
