We went to downtown Nashville at 7PM to wander around and see the sights. We wound up on the wrong street somehow, and found 2 crackheads standing in the middle of the road trying to fight. I was very surprised by that and the heavy urine smell, because we were very close to areas outlined in several walking tours I... More

If you are bored walking around downtown Nashville you should go home. If you are not into bars there are lots of restaurants, museums, and historical areas.

Downtown runs from one extreme to the other. From Auditorium in all its glory to the Bridgestone Arena. Concert venues everywhere you turn. Great places to eat and drink and live music all day and night. Downtown continues to grow and cant wait to see whats next

Feel the different beats as you walk down the streets of Nashville. A colorful mix of country and Irish and pop and rock all bleeding out onto the streets as you walk by. You won't use the term eclectic here but you'll feel it everywhere you go. Broadway and second Avenue's country sound pleading hearts to the indie rock beats... More

We enjoyed walking up and down Broadway before dinner. The music flowing into the street was entertaining. Many of the establishments were just bars and not really for families. There are several that are restaurants with live music that are suitable for families. As it grew darker, the atmosphere was really geared more for adults.

I chose to visit every possible music venue in the downtown area of Nashville along Broadway and Second, Third, Fourth, and Fifth Avenues where most of the restaurants and bars with music are located. What a great idea it turned out to be! The names have all blended together, so cannot single any one out...(sorry!), but I heard some fabulous... More

Our visit was during the week. We enjoyed some time in downtown during the day and at night. We saw a lot of great bands and enjoyed our visit. I can't wait to return.

My first trip to Downtown Nashville and it was awesome. It's one thing to be in a city or town with a main strip lined with many restaurants and bars and live music, but there's a big difference when the artistry level of the live music is so amazing everywhere you go. We had a great night listening to all... More
