We were not terribly impressed with downtown. Not very pretty or cleaned up. Unless you like the honky tonk night life, there was little else to do. Definetly not kid/family friendly. Mostly bars with live music. The standard tourist attractions (traps).

Downtown is surprisingly clean. No shortage of music venues or eateries. Friendly people everywhere.

Went around at street Broadway , bought cowboy boots for the girls , got some music shopping there , and some t-shirt stuf etc.
Girls had picering in their ears in the morning at Walmart before we hit Downtown Nashville and we ate lunch at Hooters , well I wanted to go to Hooters had heard so much about it , Husbond thought it was a stripclub, which it isn´t and he said we could go in there with the girls, well we looked inside and to my husbond dissapointment or reliefed choose the one You prefer they where all dressed in there :-) WE got such a good service at the hooters and the girls where so impressed of our waiter there , teenager son was a little bit imberrased, but after that trip into Hooters the girls was hooked on Hooter and wanted to go into all Hooters on our trip lol , well back to Downtown Nashville , we couldn´t really go into any of the bars with the live music since we had under age kids with us, but we got some glimps of it, and we got a good hot day out in Broadway street and we go icecream and nice coffee at a icecream shop there

This was an experience, I loved walking in & out of the Honky Tonk bars and hearing the different bands play. Everyone was so friendly and it was a great experience.

It was our first trip to Nashville and we spent a whole day sightseeing downtown. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the city. People were very personable and friendly. We booked the music city trolley hop-on hop-off tour and rode the bus around the city twice. We booked on-line ahead of time and did not have to wait in line to purchase a ticket. Tickets are also cheaper booked on-line. We had to drive downtown to pick up our ticket and board the trolley at the first stop. Parking downtown is plentiful and very reasonable. We paid $6 for the whole day. The driver was very informative and funny with stories about the city, famous stars, and some of his personal experiences with the stars in the city. It's a good way to see all the neighborhoods.
