The Basics

With so many attractions packed in, Downtown Nashville deserves a prominent spot on any itinerary in the city. While the neighborhood is easily explored on foot, you can also hop in a horse and carriage for a tour of attractions like the Johnny Cash Museum and Tennessee State Capitol. Night owls can experience the best of downtown aboard a BYOB open-air party bus as it cruises through Lower Broadway and Downtown Nashville.

Discover Nashville City Tour with Entry to Ryman & Country Music Hall of Fame
Our guide was very enthusiastic about Nashville history and we could tell he loved the city. There was however an event that was happing at the Rumania, so we were not able to tour. While it was no one’s fault, no one offered us compensation so we had to ask for it.

Discover Nashville City Tour with Entry to Ryman & Country Music Hall of Fame
Our guide was knowledgeable and full of southern charm. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances we were not able to tour the Ryhmen Auditorium, but had extra time at the Hall of Fame museum. This tour is a perfect opportunity to scope out Nashville for a first time visitor.

We had a great time on our shopping tour. Hunter did a great job. He took us to some good boutiques. I almost need another suitcase to get everything home that I bought. Lol

When to Get There

To get a feel for Downtown Nashville, plan to visit during the day to take in the cultural attractions and again at night to experience the famous nightlife. There’s live music pretty much every night of the week, but it’s a good idea to take a look at who’s playing beforehand and get tickets, if necessary.
