Spent 4th of July visiting music row and the local sites. Had a great time except for the scam that is their public parking. I strongly recommend avoiding the Metroplis parking lots. There is no rate posted other than on their web app that says a max of $50 per day. We parked for 3 1/2 hours and were charged $50! I should have used a covered lot that had a day price of $25 posted.

We enjoyed downtown Nashville, and we’re in our sixties! Yes it was heaving, hot and loud, but in a totally different way to Bourbon or Beale Streets in NO or run-down Memphis. Here, the beautiful people strut around in cowboy boots and stetsons, and deal in music and laughter rather than tack and weed. We weren’t bothered once by anyone for money, and everyone seemed to be there for one reason - to enjoy themselves and ensure that everyone else had a good time too. We are here at the time of the CMA awards, so there were several places off limits to riff raff like us (eg the Riverside…) but nonetheless those places we could get to, we really liked.

This was my first trip to Nashville, and my daughter and I were in downtown Nashville both during the day and at night. I found that the moment you stepped in the vicinity, you couldn't help but feel the atmosphere change to one of excitement. I found I had a smile on my face almost the entire time, and there is so much to just look at, much less do. Every type of restaurant or bar you could think about, music playing everywhere, shopping, etc. It was such a cool environment!

Such a great city, music, BBQ, fun too bad it is getting overrun with homeless. I paid 40.00 to park and I didn’t even finish putting my parking ticket in my car and there was a homeless man right up my back asking for money. Went to spend some time listening to music and have some fun however there are people begging every where. One corner was not even passable because on the sidewalk there was a homeless man sleeping on a ten by ten tarp and three others were sitting across from him, there was a men carrying a sign that said Smile if you masturbate REALLY? They are everywhere you walk. Couldn’t even stand and listen to music without someone begging or getting really in your personal space. Now the most disturbing thing that happened was a homeless man went up to the Elvis statue outside of a store and started licking the mouth of the statue, this same statue that people were taking pictures with... I don’t know but the city should be doing something to protect people who visit the city and help the homeless. Clean up Broadway!

Would leave zero stars if I could. This place is never quiet - the streets are crowded and there are competing bands playing all the time. It would be fine if they were inside the restaurant/bar whatever but no, they're on the roof so everyone can hear them. Would not visit downtown Nashville again by choice.

The latest we stayed was 7 PM, but saw it in all hours of the day. Bars were crowded in July. It is a fun street. Walk around, pick you kind of busy, band and atmosphere.

What I didn't like was the constant begging for cash by the bands. I wish there was a cover instead. The drinks are crazy expensive (like 12 $ a beer) and then you have the singer come to you with a bucket asking to support the band. I found that annoying and I didn't know how much to pay, mostly when I had been there for 5 minutes only.

Cleanliness both on the street and in the toilets of bar is not good, and often, there is no paper. Bring supplies with you.

Otherwise, we liked the bands, the neons and the experience overall.

Visited during the first week of July during the day, which was probably not the typical experience. Most clubs on lower Broadway had just been closed by the mayor due to the covid and there were not many tourists. Like most larger cities, there were a number of homeless mostly sprawled on the ground, especially in the park that hosts the country music walk of fame. We didn't exactly feel unsafe, but they definitely made us feel uncomfortable enough not to linger outside in that area. In addition, we saw recent damage from the riots everywhere (boarded up businesses, graffiti, and a statue removed to vandalism) We had to skip the Capitol building and the surrounding areas since we didn't want to get into a confrontation with demonstrators staging a sit-in, which was disappointing. It was fun to see some of the historic locations and snap a picture, but it certainly wasn't the "vibe" we were looking for. In addition, parking was ridiculously expensive in the surface parking lots. 10-15 dollars AN HOUR? I would recommend parking in the public library parking garage, which was a more reasonable 3 dollars an hour.

So nashville is very dirty and has a foul stench to it. There are a lot of homeless/mentally ill people..many of them have emaciated animals with them to try to get money. It really bummed me out the entire time, if your an animal lover beware of this. It's heartbreaking and may ruin your day to see that at every corner. Starving dogs and cats while the owner holds a sign saying they need money to feed them :( the foul odor of urine is on every corner...on the plus side, it is a great place for a young bunch to have a Bachelorette party. They have really cool party busses and I noticed the young people in the 20s had a blast! So if anything I'd recommend it for that age category. Total party city! Music is fantastic, restaurants were good. Drinks about 12.00 a piece (beer slightly cheaper). Traffic is awful, parking runs about 20 bucks If your lucky enough to find a garage. If your young and party I'd say you'll have a blast with your friends...if you are not (and I am not) I'd say steer clear.

Not party city like fun, Party City like where you get your Halloween costumes, which is where half the women must have gotten their “cow boy” outfits.
Littered with belligerent homeless, sweaty smelly drunk men and women, and quite a few “ladies” and I use the term loosely that are a little desperate for attention.
That said Jason Aldean’s place was slappin
and we had a good table.
There was vomit on the sidewalk. There was also an 80 year old woman walking around in a string bikini with her proud husband.
Hope I gave you an idea of what to expect. I like to have fun but classy fun not the sloppy kind.

Ticket division Officer Taylor gave me a ticket and had my vehicle towed from a legal parked space cost me 50.00 for ticket and 218.70 to get my car out of impound. After a nice evening downtown. Sad that they issue tickets to out of state visitors who were parked legally. I double checked sign over and over. See picture below of where I was parked which had new cars in the parking spot my vehicle was towed from. I believe it is a scam, Office and Millers towing are in this together. And to fight the ticket I would have to drive back for a court date get a hotel room and drive home. So they got you knowing you can’t fight this ticket. I will never return to Nashville again. Will go to Las Vegas strip before I return to this city or state. Put a bad taste in my mouth. Called the court office. Clerk said there is nothing I can do except request a date to have ticket looked at by judge. 10 hour drive down can’t do it. Just warning others who go to Nashville to use parking garage where at least you know your vehicle is safe. Funny thing is I was so excited to find these three spots on 2 nd and Broadway. A gentleman in a car said those spots are legal not many people know about them. I was happy I scored a free spot since day before parking was 30.00 in garage. There is a sign there NO Parking from here to corner. And there was a sign No parking here to driveway. Well I was in one of the three spots in the middle. Marked in the ground with white markings on each spot. See pics below. Be careful in Nashville.
