When I visited Nashville in February 2017, my friend suggested we find the gulch for a very unique work of art. It's a beautiful set of wings that you can take pictures of and place yourself into the center of the wings. There's a tall set and a small set. The detail that went into this wall art is stunning.... More

The neon lights and numerous bars and eateries made Broadway the Country Music Vegas strip, with less girlie shows. There was no lack of live music - and with no cover on most every bar, you could check out dozens of bands and go back and forth to the ones you enjoyed. Don your comfortable cowboy boots (or dancing shoes)... More

So, we are from the Northeast and maybe we haven't traveled around enough, but I am at a loss for words about 'The District'. If you like seeing drunk tourists, go here. If not, you can probably skip the entire scene and still have a blast in Nashville. It sort of felt like spring break for middle-aged drunk people who... More

Much like the French Quarter and Frenchmen's Street in New Orleans the country folk of this great land have Nashville's Broadway and 2nd Avenues. Lively, total fun, just kind of wander in and out of the bars...weeknights there seemed to be absolutely no cover charges but the bands were uniformly good playing typically country-rock standards. Most gift shops stay open... More

I liked the Broadway strip and the side streets as well. The strip has lots of great neon. Its best at night. Lots of music, most of it sounds good. Street performers too. In addition, there's some cool shops, cafe resturants, and a yummy ice cream store, candy store and some other interesting gift spots. Go a night, but I'd... More

It's like the Vegas strip country music themed, but without the casinos. Great live music wherever you go. Nice mix of bars, breweries, and shops. A bit touristy but fun. Pretty good BBQ but I wish they had some better restaurants, and some different food choices, pretty much just BBQ and bar food. Must go while in Nashville.

Music pouring out of every door, neon lights, country cover bands playing anything you request... what could be better? Forget Disneyland, this is the happiest place on earth y'all. Currently planning my 6th trip over from the UK!
