Nashville is an exciting destination, with all of the live music and history there are a ton of fun things to do.

Live Music Downtown

It would be a shame to visit Nashville without checking out all of the live music downtown. 2nd Avenue and Broadway are the well know (and for a really good reason) venues, but you can travel (by foot, car, or trolley) to a number of other streets to find fun and happening honky-tonks. Most downtown Honky-tonks are kid & family friendly until 9 PM because they know everyone enjoys great music & dancing!


Nashville hosts music related museums such as The Country Music Hall of Fame and MuseumThe Ryman (original home of the Grand Ole Opry, and the Antique Archaeology.


Coffee shops, microbreweries, and a range of restaurants are just a short walk from the Scarritt Bennett Center. Pick your favorite kind of food and enjoy a delicious meal.
