Nashville is all about experiencing the music though, so take your pick of the many bars and clubs around.
A visit to the Country Music Hall Of Fame is a must for any Nashville visitor. It has a fantastic array of costumes, guitars and memorabilia belonging to the top country stars! The Grand Ole Opry is an American institution, it’s where Elvis once wowed the crowds and Dolly Parton first strutted her stuff and still to this day, hosts live performances.
Downtown is where the party starts. Head for 2nd Avenue if you’re a country music lover and fancy some good ole traditional Southern cooking. Broadway is home to some of Nashville’s most popular restaurants, traditional juke joints (music, dancing & gambling establishments typical of the South), Honky Tonk music clubs and a variety of shops. If you’re looking for some finer dining and an upscale atmosphere make for 5th Avenue. Nashville is a place where the past and the future peacefully coexist and a destination that appeals to the interests of every visitor. ##Top Tips
Take a tour of Music Row and visit the historic RCA Studio, the famous recording studio where Elvis recorded over 200 songs, Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton, Chet Atkins and many more. Tours depart daily from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
A Honky Tonk is an establishment that contains at least one rockin' stage, cold beverages and a party that lasts all day everyday! Nashville Honky Tonk Highway, located on Lower Broadway, is a row of these pumping live music into the streets from 10am to 3am and no cover charge.
For a unique Southern experience spend the evening aboard the General Jackson Showboat, styled in the tradition of the grand paddlewheel riverboats that cruised the Southern waterways back in the 1800’s, enjoy a meal or dance the night away.
