It was so busy here especially on the weekend at night. So much traffic too. For me, I enjoyed it here during the day and hit the side streets and Printers Alley in the evening.

Cute downtown strip. So many cute bars/ restaurants and little country shops. Check it out when in Nashville!

Visiting Nashville includes visiting the local bars in our opinion. This area offers plenty of big name bars and you may even get lucky enough to see a star walk in. We felt that the drinks were a little expensive but that usually happens in...More

It’s all downtown and within walking distance of each other. If you selected a place to stay in the immediate downtown area you would be good to go. Have fun. Nashville is one of the most fun cities to visit.
