“Nashville downtown!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

If you love country music and plenty of country music history, you will love Nashville! It's one of my favorite places! Good food up and down the street with plenty of drink too. Wonderful Entertainment in every eating establishment and on the street. So much to see and do!

“Great way to experience good music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

A very busy street full of bars and restaurants with at least one band playing in each joint. Similar to Bourbon Street in NOLA, but the music is honkey-Tonk and rock rather than blues and jazz.

Another big difference is that drinks aren't pushed here and there is not excessive drinking (at least when we spent the evening there). You can sit a whole evening in one bar with a beer or two and not feel awkward.
Great place to hear the local musicians play their hearts out for tips.

“A fun time to enjoy country music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

There are very many bars, restaurants and stores. Most have live Country Music being performed. And they really do just work for tips! Nobody in Nashville gets paid. There is so much talent that they are happy just to get the exposure-so be sure to tip.

“Great little area!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Great little old downtown area, with lots of fun tourist shopping! Lots of bars and restaurant, candy stores and ice cream shops.

I've never been to Nashville before but I would say this is a must go to place for "tourist"

Don't go there expecting a nice clean area, that is NOT!
