Downtown Nashville is guaranteed to keep you entertained, whatever your mood. Whether you're looking for a party, or a place to contemplate the finer things, Nashville has it all waiting for you downtown.
Along Broadway and 2nd Avenue you'll find the rows of famous honky-tonks, clubs and restaurants that give this city the name "Nash Vegas". Be prepared to see some famous musicians here, whether on-stage performing or grabbing a bite to eat at one of the many unique eateries.
Or take in one of the many historic sites, museums, or galleries that downtown Nashville has to offer. For example, the Capitol buildings and Legislative Plaza both host statues and parks commemorating historic events and figures in Tennessee history.
Both government buildings, along with numerous other examples in the downtown area, epitomize the neoclassical architectural style that has contributed to Nashville gaining yet another nickname: "Athens of the South".
South of Broadway, the "SoBro" area of downtown Nashville is a walkable network of some of the city's greatest attractions, including:
- Nashville Music City Center
- Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
- Bridgestone Arena
- Schermerhorn Symphony Center
- Ascend Amphitheater
And just outside of SoBro, you can visit the Johnny Cash Museum and Cafe, Frist Art Museum, and The Gulch - downtown's trendiest area, home to the storied Station Inn music venue.
