Best Things to Do

Discover the attractions of Music City.

Many people who come to Nashville as visitors wind up never leaving. The city’s creative energy makes it irresistible. Sure, you can't flick a guitar pick without hitting a musician here, but many recently relocated Nashvillians channel their artistic sensibilities into new restaurants and businesses. There's much more to the city than music. Nashville is an every-man's destination, with something to offer families, hipsters, history buffs and singles to newlyweds.

When visiting Nashville, you’ll want to rent a car. Bus service is good, but it can take a long time, especially if you’re taking a cross-town route. The city also has a robust bike culture, with Nashville B-cycle rental stations at various outposts across the city. And there are several shops where you can rent a cruiser for a couple of days. During the summer the General Jackson paddle wheeler runs on the Cumberland River between Riverfront Park downtown and Opryland.

To ensure you don't overlook any of the city's hot spots, GAYOT has compiled this Nashville city guide to show you the best attractions, as well as hotel and dining suggestions.
