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.

Nashville Public Party Bus Experience with Bartender and DJ
This was the most amazing experience in Nashville. I was celebrating my 21st birthday and I could not think of a better way to do it. Key was our bartender and he really helped keep the party lively and was great at interacting with us. Five stars doesn’t even do this experience justice ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

When to Get There

To get a feel for Downtown Nashville, plan to visit during the day to take in the cultural attractions and again at night to experience the famous nightlife. There’s live music pretty much every night of the week, but it’s a good idea to take a look at who’s playing beforehand and get tickets, if necessary.
