If you have not taken the time to explore this town in Tennessee, I hope you will start planning your visit today. If you are traveling south on I-24 to Florida, Nashville makes a great stopover town. I’m going to show you things that you need to do when visiting Music City, USA.

Where To Stay In Nashville, Tennessee

Downtown Nashville is where I recommend staying when you want to be in the heart of Music City. With several distinguished hotels Downtown and throughout the city, you will find a property that meets your needs. I personally have loved the 21C Museum, which is located at 221 2nd Avenue North in Nashville. Nissan Stadium is a 5-minute walk and the Ryman Auditorium is 3 minutes away. Most importantly, when you stay at the 21C, be sure make note of the teal penguins that show up randomly throughout the property. Another favorite place to stay in Nashville is the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, and it is located at 2800 Opryland Drive in Nashville. A free area shuttle is available and the Grand Ole Opry Museum is a 9-minute walk.

Explore Music Row In Nashville

When you visit Nashville, Tennessee, it’s fitting that you explore Music Row. This 20-block area of the downtown area includes the Wildhorse Saloon, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, and one of my favorites, Paradise Park Trailer Resort. The beauty of exploring Music Row is that you will find all genres of music.

Most people think of only country music when they hear of the town Nashville, Tennessee. In fact, you will find all types of music along Music Row in Nashville. The Wildhorse Saloon offers more than 60,000 square feet of space on three floors, and they claim to have the largest dance floor in the world. Tootsie’s is one of those classic bars, that you just have to visit when you go to Music City. And then there’s Paradise Park Trailer Resort. Every time I visit Nashville, I stumble onto a band playing rock or pop music that I love in this themed trailer park bar.

Visit The Johnny Cash Museum & Cafe

Take a short 4-minute walk from Ryman Auditorium and take in the world’s largest collection of Johnny Cash artifacts and memorabilia. If you love Johnny Cash, you will fall in love with his music all over again. If you are not quite sure about his music, visit this museum and you will have a new appreciation of all that he brought to the world of country music.

Indulge in Goo Goo Clusters

Are you a fan of the world-famous Goo Goo Clusters? If not, visit the Goo Goo Cluster store in Nashville, Tennessee, for the ultimate introduction. When you exit the Johnny Cash Museum, cross the street and indulge in the finest chocolates ever! If you have always been a fan, this is where you can stock up on all sorts of memorabilia and chocolates.

If you fly in or are road tripping along I-24, I-40 or I-65, make time to spend time in Nashville, Tennessee.
