Nashville Travel Guide

Nashville, Tennessee is the country music capital of the world and has become a leader in education. As one of the most vibrant cities in the south, the tourism industry is booming, but it can be so hard to narrow down exactly what to do in this historic city. One of the most popular destinations in Nashville is the area along historic Broadway Avenue and 2nd Avenue North. This area, known as The District, is jam packed with shopping, restaurants and entertainment for people of all ages.

Dining and live music

This is where you want to visit if you enjoy live music because over two dozen bars and clubs host live bands every night of the week, including the Wildhorse Saloon. The Wildhorse Saloon is open for lunch, dinner and beyond. It serves up traditional southern fare and a host of signature cocktails, shots and draft beers. The earlier hours of the day are kid-friendly, so if you are traveling with your family and want to stop in for a filling meal of ribs, BBQ and sides, this is a great choice.

Where to stay

There are several hotel options in this downtown Nashville neighborhood, but Hotel Indigo is central to some of the most popular and exciting attractions Music City has to offer. The hotel is kid-friendly and has parking on site, as well as a restaurant so that you do not have to leave to grab breakfast. There are 97 guestrooms complete with all of the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay.

Things to do

The District has all of the entertainment you need to immerse yourself and your fellow travelers in Nashville culture fully. The Ryman Auditorium is a historical landmark in Nashville and it is where the Grand Ole Opry resided from 1943 until 1974. Now, the Grand Ole Opry is minutes from The District, so you can see both places. This auditorium allows self-guided tours for adults and children, as well as backstage tours and a host of country music acts.

The Country Music Hall of Fame is in the same neighborhood and in addition to checking out the exhibits, there are often special events happening at the museum, such as meet and greets with famous country musicians. The museum has a lunch restaurant inside so you can grab some food while touring or you can also hit the bar that is inside if you have no kids in tow.

The Tennessee State Museum allows you to learn about the history of this great state. The permanent exhibits include First Tennesseans, The Age of Jackson, The Civil War and Reconstruction, Frontier, Antebellum and The New South. All of these bring the history of Tennessee alive and help you to learn how this state formed and grew throughout the years. Across the street from the main building, you will find the Military Branch Museum that looks at major battles, each war and the outcomes of them.

The District in Nashville, TN is centrally located, allowing you to visit other parts of the city easily. Whether you are heading to Nashville alone or going with a group, there is no limit to the fun you can have in Music City.
