13 Best Things to Do in Nashville

All you need is three chords and this list.

Nashville is a quirky sort of place: It's a big city with a small-town feel—a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll, if you will. That makes for an all encompassing list of things to do. The music here obviously draws both travelers and aspiring song writers, and Honky Tonk Row beckons with ‘round the clock live shows and cheap beer in plastic cups. But don’t forget to venture off of Broadway—way off Broadway. Look around and you'll find a burgeoning art community, eclectic indie boutiques, and a food culture that has grown from its local Southern roots into one of America's most exciting. Tick as many of these as you can off your list to feel the real heart and soul of Music City.
