Is Visiting Nashville Worth It? | What To Do In Downtown Nashville, Tennessee

I went to Nashville when I was 21 and when I went back it didn’t quite live up to the hype and how I remembered. In the video I compare it to similar cities and give my final assessment.

Before we begin to talk about Nashville I’m going to highlight 3 cities that I have been to recently to give a reference for when I talk about Nashville later. These cities are similar size since I didn’t want to compare Nashville to places like New York or Washington DC because those are Very different.

First we’ll talk about Milwaukee, Wisconsin, then Charleston, South Carolina and finally Kansas City.

Getting Around:

Nashville is the capital and most populous city in state of Tennessee and
real estate investing platform said that Nashville is among the 10 fastest growing metros in the United States.

But despite the rapid gather there is not an easy to use public transportation system to get around the city. The city is relatively spread out as well which doesn’t make it very walkable.

If you are staying downtown you can easily get anywhere you need on Broadway and you can can even get to the midtown area which about a mile and half away so it was a 30 minute walk or a quick uber ride away.

When it comes to food, the city is known for Nashville Hot Chicken which is slowly spreading across the country and being home to the Goo Goo Cluster. Never heard of it? I hadn’t either but it was invented in 1912 and the first combination candy bar.

The food, coffee, and drinks were all pretty good. Some places stood out like Hattie B’s, Patterson House, and Legendairy but for the most part nothing felt unique. This is also someone who lives in a large city in the United States and has access to very similar food right down the street.

Things To Do:
Nashville is a major center for the music industry, especially country music and christian music and is home to the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, the Johnny Cash Museum but also a bunch of live music, which I’m sure you’ve heard about

Potential singers and song writers flock to Nashville for a chance to make it big and you’ll find live music at all times of the day! You can find live music simply by walking up and down Broadway or if you are looking for live music in a more intimate setting with song writers you may know or who have written songs on the radio you’ll want to check out places like Listening Room Cafe, Puckett’s, the Ryman, The Grand Ole Opry, or the Blue Bird.

But that isn’t all the city is also home to a replica of the Greek Parthenon. You know, like the one in Athens.

While in Nashville there is quite a bit to do but it is all generally targeted to the bar and music scene.

There are parks to go to or you can rent a car and try to go hiking in the mountains or walk in the woods but a lot of the city is centered around Broadway. Which isn’t a bad thing but at times it just felt we were going from bar to bar catching the next live performer looking for something to do.

Final Assessment:
If you disagree with me I totally understand and will be looking forward for your input.
