We took the hop on/off trolley on a Sunday, so this stop was needless to see. Everything was closed, except one local bar. Other than the Sun Records Studio, which has to be bundled with the Country Music Hall of Fame for tickets, there was...More

Newbie here/first timer. What area is in walking distance to the main attractions , bars and restaurants. We wont have a car. Hubby has mobility issues. Which would be better for us Vanderbilt/Music Row or Downtown? Thanks for any info.

The downtown core, defined as Charlotte Ave to Korean Veterans Blvd north to south and 1st Ave to 9th Ave east to west is the most convenient area to the main tourist attractions.

Do you need a reservation to go to the Music Row Happy Hour? Does it get really busy?

What's the Music Row Happy Hour? I've never heard of it. Or are you referring generally to the honky tonks with live music during the late afternoon/early evening?

Had a wedding Saturday night in Murfreesboro. Planned to spend Sunday in Nashville without doing much research. Looked on Expedia for hotel prices and headed that way. My Uncle suggested that we stop at Opryland to shop. They wanted $26 to park so we skipped it and headed to Best Western Music Row. I negotiated a rate of $129 with the lady at the front desk and she let us park and check in at 10 am.

Good write up! If you were going to Opry Mills to shop, there's no charge for parking. You were probably at the Opryland Hotel parking lot. If you come back, you can see the Opryland Hotel for free by parking in the Opry Mills mall parking lot and walking about 3 minutes from there to the hotel.
