Downtown area, the best area to stay in Nashville

The downtown area is by far and away the most happening district in the city and is the hub of the entertainment, which gives the city its identity. This area is one of the closest to the Nashville International Airport and there are shuttle buses that can be arranged with the majority of hotels and there is also airport/downtown bus, which runs every hour and is incredibly inexpensive. Nashville is one of the more dangerous cities in the USA but this area is heavily policed and only petty crimes happen like stealing happen, so it is best to just use some common sense when out and about. The district is well served by public transport too, which means you can easily reach other parts of Nashville without much hassle.

 

There are a whole host of things to do in the downtown area, which appeal to a wide audience, whether you like music, history, modern architecture, general museums, night time entertainment, bars and restaurants. Probably the first thing you will notice is the tallest building in the state, which is the AT&T Building or more commonly known as “The Batman Building due to the 2 tall spires that sit on top of it. Another structure that is very noticeable is the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge, which was built in the early 20th century and is vehicle free, so that you can enjoy the fantastic views of the riverfront and downtown. Another excellent man made structure is the Tennessee State Capitol, which is neoclassical masterpiece of architecture and was created in the mid 19th century and holds various exhibits. There are hundreds of brilliant museums and galleries to check out and some of our favourites include the First Centre for Visual Arts, which has artists art work that come from the city as well as ones that are internationally known, The State Museum, which has permanent exhibitions to do with the history of the state and the Musicians Hall of Fame has many interesting displays of musicians that have come from the city.

 

The majority of the shops can be found along Broadway and 5th Avenue with both having great ranges of shops and malls that sell about everything you could think of. You are spoilt for options in terms of nightlife entertainment with famous plays at the Performing Arts Centre, international music acts at the Bridgestone Arena and the legendary Ryman Auditorium, which hosts famous country acts. The best streets for hotels, restaurants, bars and nightclubs are US Highway 70 or Printer’s Alley as there are plenty of hotels, restaurants, bars and nightclubs to pick from.
