In Nashville, it's all about the music!  From the airport, to the hotel, to dinner, the Opry and Broadway, music accompanies every step of your journey here and it’s quite fun. It is a city that reminds you to make joy and be merry, to dance plenty and indulge in delicious treats and plenty of spirited libations. Nashville is one of those cities that you don’t know you already love until you visit and it’s a true joy to discover the natural cadence and rhythm of this very special place.

Things to do in Nashville, Tennessee

Musical Journey to Nashville, Tennessee - Things to do

Before arriving in Nashville and when there, tune into the melody of the city. While Nashville is known for its music, the murals around the city add to its artistic vibe. Keep an eye out! Listen to Nashville's aspiring artists while wandering in and out of Broadway's Honky Tonks. Think: Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Luke's 32 and Florida Georgia Line (across from the Johnny Cash Museum). Don’t feel like walking? Take a trip around town on the Nashville Pedal Tavern and enjoy a musical journey on wheels. 

For the evening, get tickets to see a show at the 130 year old Ryman Theater, where day tours are also available. You can also get a backstage tour of The Grand Ole Opry House and learn all the secrets of country music history. 

For the history buff, remember the country's greatest at the Country Music Hall of Fame, one of America's greatest landmarks. And don’t forget the one and only Johnny Cash Museum. Remember to take a selfie with the legend. 

And for some final shopping, head on over to the Gulch neighborhood. Fan favorite boutiques include Kittenish, Blush Boutiques and Frye Boots. You’ll be wanting to rock your country gear back home!

Eat & drink in Nashville, Tennessee

Musical Journey to Nashville, Tennessee - Eat & drink

Luke’s 32 Bridge: Live music, good drinks and appetizers like Kettle Chips, which I’d describe as southern pulled pork nachos. 

Pancake Pantry: Nashville’s pancake heaven. Order the sweet potato pancakes!

Moto Enoteca: In the mood for Italian? Order the Tagliatelle Bolognese here for a truly remarkable culinary experience!

Sambuca:  Like being at an intimate concert venue while having a fine dining experience. The filet served with gorgonzola walnut butter and port wine bordelaise is a must try!

Deacons New South: A modern steakhouse with traditional southern hospitality. 

Biscuit Love: A southern type of brunch with plenty of biscuits and gravy to go around. 

Milk & Honey: A lovely brunch destination with scrumptious eggs and biscuits dishes as well as healthy bowl options. 

Hattie B's: Hot chicken restaurant perfect for take-away when you just want to lay in bed and eat your chicken.
