How to Spend 2 Days in Nashville

How to Spend 2 Days in Nashville

With two days in Nashville, hit the musts while you delve into the city’s creative heart, from local restaurants to country stars. Dabble in energetic nightlife, follow in the footsteps of Johnny Cash and Loretta Lynn, then slow down for a leisurely barbecue dinner with all the fixings. Here’s how to maximize 48 hours in Nashville.

 

Day 1: Country Classic

**Morning:**Get your bearings on a tour that explores the heart of the city—it’s a great way to discover places to visit later on. A hop-on hop-off tour offers flexibility, while guided tours of Nashville music spots, history, and landmarks provide more insight and context.

**Afternoon:**Visit the places where country greats made music history: tickets to the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, and RCA’s Studio B offer peeks into the places behind your favorite country songs. For lunch, choose between the city’s two classic eats: a barbecue feast or Nashville’s fiery hot chicken.

 

**Night:**Dance your way into vacation mode on a tour that explores Nashville nightlife, from honky-tonk bars to wild party buses. If you’re looking for a quieter evening, catch your music on the Cumberland River, where dinner cruises feature live entertainment and barbecue buffets.

 

Day 2: Culture and Cuisine

**Morning:**Enter a world of rhinestones and hairspray on a tour of Nashville’s celebrity homes; you’ll peer past the gates and get some insider gossip about top local stars. If you’re determined to see inside, opt for the over-the-top Fontanel Mansion, which is packed with Barbara Mandell’s country memorabilia.

**Afternoon:**Skip a full lunch in favor of a food-themed tour so you can taste a little bit of everything while exploring some of Nashville’s most energetic neighborhoods. Sip local whiskey, learn what sets Tennessee barbecue apart, and check out the vibrant craft beer scene.

**Night:**Having taken in Nashville’s nightlife last night, experience a different side of the city after dark tonight. Evening city tours take in glittering views from the waterfront, and by booking you can secure tickets to see the Nashville Symphony at their magnificent, open-air amphitheater.
