The Basics

With so many attractions packed in, Downtown Nashville deserves a prominent spot on any itinerary in the city. While the neighborhood is easily explored on foot, you can also hop in a horse and carriage for a tour of attractions like the Johnny Cash Museum and Tennessee State Capitol. Night owls can experience the best of downtown aboard a BYOB open-air party bus as it cruises through Lower Broadway and Downtown Nashville.

The golf cart tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Nashville. Shawn our tour guide was amazing and made it so much fun. This was a great way to really learn about the recording studios and some of the history behind the city. I took someone else’s recommendation and did this tour on our first day in town. I highly recommend this tour and doing it early in your trip
