The downtown area is very walkable an this street has something for everyone, including food and shopping. They have done a sensitive and tasteful restoration of this street. It's close to the waterfront and the pedestrian bridge as well. I love Nashville!

Would not recommend, surly staff to begin with and when I went back to exchange an item for a different size was told bluntly that there was a no return policy and this was not negotiable! Beware if you buy anything and then want to...More

What more can I say other than if you want to really feel the city, you have to walk it! Some of it is tourist oriented, quite a bit is designed for fans of particular musicians. So what? It's NASHVILLE and it's ALL good!

Found the best prices for t-shirts and souvenirs at Cotton Eyed Joe's, on the corner of Broadway and Second Ave. The store could use a good dusting. The staff was helpful, when asked for assistance.

Loved shopping here, on my recent trip to Nashville. Found a cute outfit for my daughter, also cowgirl boots for the two of us. Everyone we met in the stores was super friendly and helpful. Local restaurants and ever-present live music were both appreciated.

Oh wow, could you have all the fun the world here. No matter what music or atmosphere you are into, it's there. It reminded me of Vegas without the casinos. Cannot wait to get myself back to Nashville!
