Nashville

There’s never a shortage of inspiring things to do in Music City. With music, culture, the arts, food, sports and shopping, there is an “only in Nashville” experience waiting just for you!

If music is your passion, then Nashville, where country, bluegrass, rock, pop, Americana, gospel, classical, jazz and blues converge, is the place to indulge. The Nashville nightlife is a non-stop mover-and-shakers paradise. Visit the Honkey Tonk Highway, located on lower Broadway, where music is playing daily from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 a.m. and all the bands play for tips. This row of honkey tonks doesn’t have a cover charge so you can enjoy all the music for free. Many a music legend has gotten their start on those same live stages so you never know who you might see here—they might be the next big thing! 

Pay homage to the music of the past by visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, connected to the Conference key hotel, the Omni Nashville. Choose from several other music-themed attractions, from backstage tours of iconic music venues like the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, or Historic RCA Studio B, or a bus tour where you can be serenaded by a local musician. Don’t miss a stroll down the Music City Walk of Fame while you’re in town!

If the Arts are more your scene, you’ll have no shortage of museums, public art, street art, murals, and performing arts to soak in. Visit the Parthenon in Centennial Park, home to the city’s art collection, the world’s only full-scale reproduction of the famous Greek temple. Frist Art Museum, the heart of the Nashville art-scene, offers a wide variety of exhibitions. With more than 75 other galleries to choose from, you’re sure to find something that speaks to you.

Nashville is a foodie’s paradise with options that span the range from hot dogs, BBQ, and hot chicken to Asian, traditional-to-modern American, authentic Mexican, and quintessentially southern meat & three cuisine. Beer, wine, and spirits connoisseurs won’t be disappointed with a wide selection of breweries, wineries, and distilleries to choose from. 

Nashville is home to four professional sports teams and multiple NCAA Division I universities so make time for a home game. There are plenty of ways to stay healthy and active while you’re away with indoor and outdoor activities galore. Drop-in to a local yoga class, sign up for a running tour, or bike the greenway. Enjoy the beauty of nature at the nearby Cumberland River, go spelunking in Cumberland Caverns, or take a treetop zipline tour.
