Wow...it has been years since I have been to Nashville. Or at least, downtown. My wife and I visited for a hockey game and absolutely loved the downtown area. We could have stayed another night or two!

I found the main drag along Nashville to be fun. Great live music, plenty of people enjoying life and having a good time, What I found to be even better town planning is that on one end of Broadway there is an Ice Hockey stadium for the NHL team the Nashville Predators and on the other side is the big...

A must see and do. Don't bring your kids or animals. Downtown Nashville is for music lovers, country mostly but there are some rockers thrown in too. Loved the night atmosphere bar hopping. Stop at Sun Diner for an egg amd sausage breakfast burger on a donut before going back to your hotel and maybe a big black coffee too!!

The District is essentially the old part of nashville that is being revitalised. It is an area with a great deal of character and history and it retains its old feel and its character although some of the businesses could be regarded as a little tacky. Definitely a must see in Nashville and be sure just to walk around the... More

Just a few blocks of walking on both sides of Broadway in downtown Nashville -- "The District" -- will take you happily into a rollicking honky tonk (one is a triple-decker; another has a roof garden) where boot-kicking live country/pop/rock music sometimes starts in the morning, or a western-wear store with nice duds beyond the very cool boots and hats,...

The District is kind of like the main central street down inner Downtown Nashville. All of the best Honky Tonk bars and shops are here, definitely a tourist friendly location. Bridgestone Arena is also right in this general area, so if you're visiting, I highly recommend checking out a Predators game! Lots of good restaurants, fun novelty shops and a... More

If you're up for loud honky tonk, you'll enjoy the gulch with lots of bars and music. Places for romantic or family dining - forget it. There are the usual young rowdy crowds and some sad street people scattered around.

This place is just humming with a new band in a new bar every 20 paces and brides to be galore. It really is something to behold...go at night for the best experience.
