My husband & I were camping in the area & decided to check out Nashville,In. We had visited years ago when we still had 3 kids in tow.
This basically started out as an artist's enclave. You can still find some places that sell art work, but most are touristy shops with grossly overpriced merchandise. We saw a lot of people walking around looking. Not many were holding shopping bags.
The shop keepers were very friendly in every shop I went into. There is free parking if you are willing to walk. Most people, if they couldn't find a spot close on the street paid the $4-$5 for parking in a lot. Shades of Gatlinburg!
There is a visitor center & the girl behind the counter DID know where the nearest drugstore was. She was probably the least friendly person we came across in this town (not really unfriendly, but not going out of her way to be friendly if you know what I mean). There are also public bathrooms located around town.
The best deal in town was not there last time we visited. They have a trolley shaped like a train that takes you around town & gives you a tour, complete with the history of the town. We didn't take it, but you can't miss it roaming around town. $5 for adults, which isn't that bad.
There are numerous restaurants & ice cream shops to choose from.

I love Nashville IN. Great place to go for the day or weekend. Can be very crowded in the fall. Shop owners are very nice and friendly. Nashville is a very small Gatlinburg. I hate to compare Nashville to Gatlinburg because Nashville does not have the commercialism that Gatlinburg has. More of one of kind shops.

We had been here several times in the past, but our last visit in June was very disappointing. Our first stop was at the visitor's center. The person there must have been in training because she seemed to know nothing about the town or location of shops. We took off on our own and made the mistake of visiting the public bathrooms - a real disgrace. We stopped in a few shops, but even as tourists, we could see that most items were very overpriced. We did stop at one art gallery which was delightful with reasonably price items for the quality. The shopkeepers seemed to be bored. We had some average ice cream, and decided to leave disappointed.

This is a great little town to go to for relaxation. The shops are wonderful and there are many things to do other than shop. Enjoy taking a ride on the Trolley. Go Zip Lining, Trail Riding, Paint Balling, Canoeing, relax with a massage or so many other things – I did. This town offers something for just about everyone.

Explore Brown County at Valley Branch Retreat has several zip line packages with 9 or 10 different lines. The forested rugged terrain is ideal. Our group ranged in age from 11 to 74 and everyone had a blast. Our guides, Brett and Zach were fun and professional explaining things clearly and making it all fun. Highly recommend this.
