This was one of the funnest trips we have taken. There are so many bars side by side you can't get bored. We bar hopped and listened to live bands all day every day. After about 3 days.......it's time to go home!

There is just so much to do. Every bar has a live band of some sort, and it's easy to go from bar to bar. Just a great place!

It’s all downtown and within walking distance of each other. If you selected a place to stay in the immediate downtown area you would be good to go. Have fun. Nashville is one of the most fun cities to visit.
