Nashville is a fantastic place to visit. They have everything from pro football to hockey to Vanderbilt university. Also Bridgestone arena is a great venue. I've seen 2 concerts there. The bar scene is incredible. Especially the rooftop bars.

Downtown Nashville is Broadway in Nashville and this is far better than Broadway in New York as there are more free music venues with budding stars than anywhere in the world. One could easily spend a week here and not get bored. This is the...More

So many bars - open all the time - with great music playing. You can go from place to place for free (or stop in for a drink). Local bands that are really good. Also, lots of places to eat and shop. Always busy....and fun!

I always enjoy bar hopping on Broadway. The live music is amazing, and there is a great variety. Of course there is more country than anything else, but you can find music for all tastes.

I am not sure what you mean by affordable. the Doubletree is about $159 a night. Staying there would allow you to walk to most everything so you will not need a car. If you have a car, this will allow you more choices... More
