“Downtown Nashville”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We were immensely surprised by how much we loved downtown Nashville. Lots of great stores for browsing. Great music in every nook and cranny. Cool historical sites. Everything we wanted to see was "walkable." Our only disappointment was the dining choices. There were plenty of burger joints and a few high end restaurants with menus for refined palates, but we could not find anything in between. We are returning again this weekend for 2 concerts and can't wait!

“You must go downtown at night!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Had a couple of great nights in Nashville bars. The main street was fantastic with fabulous bars, many of them had brilliant bands playing. As most of them didn't have a door charge the bands just come round with a bucket to collect tips - what a cheap night out when you consider the quality of the entertainment. Can't remember much about the second night (woke up with a sore head the day after) but I know I enjoyed it. Are we teenagers? No, we are two retired 'ladies'!

“First class”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

I didn't know what to expect when I came to Nashville, but I totally enjoyed this fantastic city. We came to see the Opry and while we were here we found it had so much more to offer. I would stay downtown and take the trolley around the city. This will give you a good idea of what this place has to offer besides great music. The trolley is the hop on hop off type. The driver explains the history and places to see. Every restaurant, bar had live entertainment we went into. The entertainment starts early and goes through the night. After seeing the amazing talent here I told my wife that when I get home I going to throw my guitar in the fire or start practicing more. The musicians are just amazing and they come from all over the world trying to make it big. We didn't just hear Country but Blues, Rock, Bluegrass we heard it all. The downtown was clean and safe. We had no worries walking around at night. The football stadium is across the river and hockey arena is on broadway, both within walking distance from any hotel downtown. This is a place to see and enjoy everything it has to offer. A place you will want to back to.
