Nashville Entertainment, Nashville Nightlife, Dinner Theaters, concerts, live Nashville music, dancing, and more. The excitement of the city, from Downtown Nashville, to Music Valley is inspiring. I'm sure you will love it and want to come back for more.
On your first trip to Nashville, you definitely want to see the Grand Ole Opry. They got their start at the Ryman Auditorium but now they have a new place by Opry Mills Mall. Take a day tour and see behind the scenes just like the stars see it. This will give you a deeper depth of what the Grand Ole Opry is all about.
Be sure you go downtown for lunch. I love to go listen to live entertainment while having a meal. There are several places that have huge windows that open and you get the feel of being outdoors. This is great because when you walk around you can see in and hear the music. This is a great touch for a music experience.
The number one place to visit is along Broadway and along 2nd Avenue. Here you will find the Nashville Bars and Honkytonks. Everyplace has a stage where you can listen to live bands or sing karaoke and most places don't charge to get in.
Second Avenue crosses Broadway and is by the river. It is also a part of the same scene. On Friday and Saturday nights, the streets are full of tourists. There are street musicians entertaining the public mostly along Broadway.
What I like about this area is that several of the bars have windows that swing out of the way and is open to the street. With the street singers, bar music, and laughter from the crowd, it gives an air of excitement.
