Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art

A privately-owned estate on 55 acres on the western edge of Nashville, Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art was opened to the public in 1960. The former home of the prominent Cheek family, the 30,000 square foot Georgian mansion houses an impressive collection of art, including paintings, drawings, and porcelain objects. Surrounding the mansion are the gardens, which feature flowering trees, annuals, and shrubs. Visitors can enjoy featured exhibits and installations, water features, and floral displays. Every week, Cheekwood offers explorative activities for children, making this attraction fun for the entire family.

The Parthenon in Centennial Park

Did you know Nashville is called the “Athens of the South?” This name comes from the numerous colleges and universities in the city as well as from this tribute to classical Greek architecture. This replica of the original Parthenon in Athens, Greece houses a museum that features art from 19th- and 20th-century American artists alongside Athenian sculptures which were created from direct casts of originals of ancient Greek works. Located within Centennial Park, the Parthenon is a great spot for a picnic on a sunny day.

The Ryman Auditorium

One of the most famous music venues in the country, this National Historic Landmark was built in 1892 by Captain Tom Ryman as the Union Gospel Tabernacle. Best known as the former home of the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium continues to host concerts of every musical genre today in its 2,362-seat room. During the months of November through February each year, country music fans can enjoy performances of the Grand Ole Opry here. Not only does this historic building host musical events, but it is also open daily for both guided and self-guided tours. Highlights from these tours include a photo of yourself on the Ryman stage, a timeline of events, a recording studio, and the Hatch Show Print Gallery, an autographed collection of iconic letterprint posters of artists from Aretha Franklin to the Zac Brown Band.

What You Need to Know About Boat Insurance

Spring has arrived, and warmer temperatures are well on their way. For those who have a boat, warm weather means it is time to go out on the lake and enjoy the sunshine on the water. Although boat insurance is only required by the states of Arkansas and Utah, boat owners should strongly consider shopping for a boat insurance policy. Unfortunately, boating accidents do happen, and having the peace of mind knowing that you, your family, and your friends are protected by a boat insurance policy will allow you to not have to worry about liability and medical incidents. If you own a boat, Elite Insurance Solutions recommends you have a current boat insurance policy in place before you take your boat out on the water this year. Our agents have experience and knowledge to help you find the best coverage available. We would like to share with you some information from DMV.ORG about boat insurance policies.

Can boat insurance be required even if I do not live in Arkansas or Utah?

Yes, a couple of situations could require you to have a boat insurance policy no matter where you live. If you ever must use your boat as a type of collateral for a loan, the bank could require the boat to be insured. Also, certain marinas and harbors can require you to have a boat insurance policy in order to dock your boat at their facilities.

I thought my boat was covered in my home insurance policy. Is this not true?

Although you may receive limited coverage to smaller boats on your property within your home insurance policy, most large items, including boats, that have their own specific type of insurance available can only be covered by that specific insurance.

What are the categories for boat insurance policies?

Like vehicle insurance policies, boat insurance coverage can be customized to suit your needs by choosing specific categories, which include:

Liability

When an accident happens on your boat, you can be held financially responsible for certain costs related with that accident. With boat liability coverage, the insurance will cover any costs associated with bodily injury and property damage suffered by others in a boating accident that is your fault.

Uninsured

Since our area does not require boat insurance, you run the risk of being in a boating accident caused by an uninsured boater. Uninsured boat coverage will help you cover costs related from an incident caused by a boater with no insurance.

Boat Repair

To help you pay for any repairs needed to your boat, you can choose from different types of boat coverage. Collision coverage can financially assist with any repairs to your boat if it is damaged in a collision. Comprehensive coverage can help pay for boat repairs that are not caused by a collision. Another option is towing coverage.

Medical

This type of coverage assists with any medical bills you may have if you are injured on your boat. Your health insurance may already cover this situation, and our agents can find out if you need to add medical insurance to your boat policy.

Need to purchase or renew your boat insurance policy? Contact Elite Insurance Solutions to consult with our agents on what is best for you and your boat this summer.
