Nashville, Tennessee, USA

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.

Discover Nashville City Tour with Entry to Ryman & Country Music Hall of Fame
We had Lee as our guide could not have been more perfect for our excursion he has actually been in the business for many years and shared some of those experiences with us. Would have liked a few more minutes at each stop always felt like the timer was running against us. Maybe 10 minutes or so at each stop. Otherwise quite nice
