“Lots of things to see downtown but somewhat expensive parking”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We spent 3 days in the Nashville area and there are tons of things to see and do. We spend about 4 hours in the downtown area and there are 15-20 shops that are worth the time to visit, especially if you are a country music fan. Lots of restaurants. We were here about 5 years ago and nothing had changed but we enjoyed doing it again and will do the tour downtown again the next visit. The only problem we had was the cost of parking, there seems to be small parking lots everywhere there was a vacant lot that had self pay parking. The first day you could get 1 1/2 hours for $8.00 but the next day that option was not available at the same parking lot and the shortest period was 4 hours which cost $15.00. These prices kind of put a damper on the visit. We saw several parking decks but all were full. I assumed these were city owned parking lots.

“Amazing musicians!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Love that the downtown area is so small and easy to get around. Love the honky tonks including Tootsie's. For great blues, check out BB Kings. Try one of the bars that have an upstairs for less of a crowd and a great view of the street.

“Friendly, Clean and Fun Downtown Nashville!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Walked in and out of stores and shops on Broadway while enjoying country music from the endless bars, saloons, and honky tonks! This area of Nashville certainly supports the Music City reputation of the town. People are nice, courteous, and helpful in the stores. Lovely, clean atmosphere in more ways than one.

“A friendly fun place”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This city if clean, friendly and fun. It was fun to just walk around the town and experience the food and atmosphere. Its like George St in St John`s Newfoundland and Bar Harbour Maine. Lots of food , entertainment and shopping for Country boots! Live talented performers in every bar that spred out onto the street. Many famous bars that great Country stars have played in and become famous, Great musicians in Music city that played for tips.Attractions to see within walking distance.

“Music City!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

A fun place... so much going on... so many places to see... so many places to eat... We enjoyed walking around downtown very much. Be warned, though, that there are homeless people all around who are asking for money. There was an adequate amount of police presence in the area so we felt fairly safe.
