Discover Nashville: Get to Know Our New City

Frontdesk welcomes you to our newest city: Nashville, TN! Music City lives up to the name with live music around every corner. However, Nashville is known for so much more than just country music. This lively city has something for everyone! Here are the best places to visit in Nashville, from popular tourist stops, to the best honky tonks, to the top places to eat in the city!

Neighborhoods

Downtown

Downtown Nashville is also referred to as “The District”. This lively part of the city is full of flashing lights and honky tonks. Broadway is known for its electric energy and rooftop bar scene. This is the ideal location to experience all that Nashville is known for.

Gulch

The Gulch is just south of downtown and is more upscale and trendy. This neighborhood is filled with high-end shopping and trendsetting dining.

West End

West End is home to Centennial Park, the largest urban park in Nashville. This part of town is great for those who are active and looking to spend time outdoors. Tucked away just outside of downtown, West End is centrally located to get to other parts of the city in no time.

Things to Do

Visit the Grand Ole Opry

The Grand Ole Opry is the longest-running radio show in the USA. It’s a world-class music venue that has hosted country music legends and new stars. For the majority of the year, the Grand Ole Opry takes place at the Opry House. A few times a year, the show returns to The Ryman Auditorium, the former home of the Grand Ole Opry.

Learn to Line Dance at the Wildhorse Saloon

While in the south, learn how to line dance at the Wildhorse Saloon! Wild Horse Saloon is a three-story saloon and restaurant with free line dancing lessons every day. From line dancing lessons, delicious southern food, and live entertainment, the Wildhorse Saloon will keep you busy for hours!

The Country Music Hall of Fame is one of the most iconic stops in Nashville. It offers a look into country music’s past and present. The museum is home to a collection of over 2 million artifacts ranging from stage costumes to instruments. Each object displayed in the museum tells the story of country music’s global influence.

Marathon Village is a neighborhood born out of the buildings that once housed Marathon Motor Works. The preserved historical space has become a place for affordable work studios, unique retail shops, artists and entertainment, food and drinks, and more!

Bridgestone Arena

The Bridgestone Arena is a multipurpose venue located right in downtown Nashville that hosts various sporting events, shows & concerts, and is home of the Nashville Predators of the NHL. Nashville loves their hockey so if you’re in town during the NHL season, a Predators game is something you won’t want to miss!

Best Restaurants and Bars

Breakfast/Brunch

Brunch options in Nashville are plentiful! We recommend stopping at Biscuit Love in the Gulch for a delicious breakfast or brunch with indoor and outdoor dining options. The restaurant also has locations in Hillsboro Village and Downtown Franklin.

Lunch

It wouldn’t be a trip to Nashville without trying hot chicken and The Stillery has various ways to try it including a hot chicken sandwich, hot chicken pizza, and hot chicken mac and cheese. The menu includes a variety of options to appeal to all pallets and unique cocktails served from mason jars.

Dinner

For a nice dinner, we recommend Husk. Just a mile from downtown Nashville, this restaurant is located inside a historic home. They use locally sourced, farm-fresh ingredients while serving up indulgent Southern dishes.

Bars

If you came to Nashville looking for fun bars, you’re in the right place! The Broadway strip has over 32 bars and you can easily walk from one to another. Many of the bars are multiple stories with different live bands on each level. A few of the bars we recommend are Tootsies, Honky Tonk Central, and The Stage on Broadway. Country singers including Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, and Blake Shelton also own bars on Broadway.

Best Way to Get Around

Downtown Nashville is very walkable and easy to get from place to place. If you’re looking to experience other parts of the city or staying outside of downtown, you will likely need a car. Uber and Lyft are also both active in Nashville and if you’re looking for a healthy, greener way to see the city, you can rent a bicycle or scooter with Nashville BCycle, Bird, or Lime.
