Things to Do
More than a one-hit wonder
Nashville, also known as Music City, is the home of country music, but this vibrant city has entertainment and sightseeing activities for everybody. Some of our favorite activities and sights include the following:
Nashville Entertainment District
The District is the pulse of downtown Nashville. Beginning on First Avenue, which sits along the Cumberland River, the District is made up of Lower Broadway, Printer’s Alley, and Second Avenue. The restaurants, clubs, honky-tonks, and the music that vibrates through the District have a way of attracting people of all ages and musical preferences. From the Wild Horse Saloon to the Old Ryman Auditorium, the District is a step back in time.
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
In the heart of downtown Nashville’s vibrant entertainment district, the 130,000-square-foot museum offers breathtaking views of the city. Inside, the museum presents the crown jewels of its vast collection to illustrate country music's story. It is a true treasure trove that includes historic country video clips and recorded music, dynamic exhibits and state-of-the-art design, live performances and public programs, a museum store, on-site dining, and fabulous public spaces.
