We live about 30 minutes from Nashville. We go downtown quite often. If you go spend some time on the riverfront. Beautiful area. Also walk around second av and Demonbreun. There are tons of wonderful restaurants. Go in some of the little shops and restaurants you are not really sure about. Especially if you hear music!! You may just be... More

Great friendly city with a constant back drop of music playing. We were lucky enough to see a free concert on the banks of the river Cumberland, excellent event. Using the free tourist buses are great and keep you out of the heat. However check the timetable we were waiting for a blue line after they had stopped running.

We tried the free transit, it was great, 3 different routes take you around the downtown area, then we tried the regular transit to go to the Coloseum, with help from the Welcome Centre, we found it and paid $1.70 each way and it worked out fine. Cheap way to get around. There is a lot of history in Nashville.... More

we really like the downtown nashville food and club scene...the musicians are very talented and each bar has a stage. there are plenty of places to eat, and lots of funky gift shops, but make no mistake, music is the number one product they are selling, and its top notch.. the entertainment district seems pretty safe and there is a...

If you go to Nashville you have to go downtown. Excellent music just about every where you pop in. Some of the honky tones are more expensive than others, but the history and present mix together in an incredible experience.

the downtown area is as interesting as as any area. the souvenir shops are good and the staff is friendly. two of the better stops are Jacks BBQ and Mike's homemade ice cream. both are worth a visit.

visited for a couple of days after the 4th of July. Broadway street has at least 40 bars and honky tonks and most of them have bands and it is a haven for county music lovers. The good is the live music the bad is that it is really difficult to get into them since they are packed wall to... More

There was a Taylor Swift concert the evening we were in downtown Nashville. It was very crowded. We ate at Hard Rock Cafe because the Saloon was charging a cover charge just to dine. I would take a guided tour at the beginning to hear of all the sights to see.
