Downtown Nashville is a place to visit. There are plenty on restaurants to experience and places to shop. Whether is be eating at Jacks BBQ or shopping for those cowboy/girl boots, they have something for everything. I went into a tattoo shop to not get ink done but to go upstairs to a boutique. I bought a one of a kind purse there and got nothing but compliments when I got home. When I went back next year, of course I bought another purse. They have a place where you can buy 2 pairs of boots and get a 3rd free. The boots are expensive, but when in Nashville....parking is free at the meters after 9pm. There is a lot of character in downtown Nashville. So many nice people. It is amazing to look down broadway at night and see all the signs lit up and the life of the city

Very interesting because of all the old stores and the history of Nashville. A lo lot walking but well worth it. There are so many interesting things to do and see there.

It is exactly what you would expect. A music venue every where you look PLUS more boot stores and souvenir shops than ANY economy could support. If you look past the "kitsch," you will find music to enjoy from 10 AM until 2 AM. Gentle reminder - bands do not get paid much if anything at all so those Tip Jars mean the world to your entertainers. Make sure you have some $1s, $5s and $10s with you to show your appreciation ofr their talent and to help them earn their livelihood.

Besides music, there are museums a-plenty and many restaurants - some good and some not so good. Like any touristy area, do you research in advance and don't be afraid to want OFF OF Lower Broadway.

A few highlights include visiting the Goo Goo Shop - home of the Nashville-created Goo Goo Cluster candy bar. Across the street from the Goo Goo Shop is the Johnny Cash Museum - very well done and well worth a visit. The Ryman, The Tennessee State Museum (which is FREE but they welcome donations!) and so many other attractions throughout a large but definitely walkable/bikeable downtown area - a bit hilly but very doable. Enjoy a stroll on the pedestrian bridge over the Cumberland River. You will always find something new to explore in downtown Nashville.

There is so much to do Downtown, great selection of Restaurants, Shops and Live Music to choose from, most don't charge admission and don't have a cover charge either, you need to have I.D. and be over 21 in most Bars too
