Things to do in Nashville

We decided that we were going to make a holiday out of Nashville and we went for 10 days. So we did lots before and after Beachbody Summit and I wanted to share with you! Many of you may find some of this useful for next year since Summit will be in Nashville again!

Bars/restaurants 
The Silver Dollar – This small bar has live music and is just a half a block of Broadway.
The Tin Roof – This bar is HAPPENING! Every night it was packed and had people standing outside on the sidewalk to listen to the Live bands.
Tootsies – One of the most popular bars in Nashville. It is 3 levels and has a rooftop deck overlooking Broadway and Bridgestone Arena. Located on Downtown Broadway. And you guessed it…live music!
The Listening Room – this is about 3 blocks off of Broadway. Although it is small and doesn’t hold that many people, it was very packed when we were there. There is also a patio outside. There were great appetizers and the entertainment was fantastic. There are 2 shows a night and each show featured 4 artists singing in turn and sometimes together. A very relaxed place with great atmosphere and entertainment.
The Wildhorse Saloon – This restraint/bar is HUGE and has a very large dance floor. They sometimes have live entertainment and they also teach line dancing. The food was also great u here. There is a cover charge after 6:00.
Pucketts – This restaurant was fantastic! It is more of a contemporary, authentic Southern restaurant with a great atmoshphere and food.
Things to do in Nashville:
Country Music Hall of Fame–This is a great place to visit for Country Music Fans! There is a ton of History and old artifacts, clothing and memorabilia from famous music artists. There is even one of Elvis’s old cars! It was around $25 a person to do the self guided tour.

Ryman Auditorium-The Ryman Auditorium is in the heart of downtown Nashville and is where the Grand Ole Opry used to be located. They outgrew in and moved to the new building about 20 minutes away from downtown Nashville. The Ryman has lots of history and you can even pay $20 to record a song in the recording studio there, which was a very neat experience!

Grand Ole Opry-Even if you aren’t a country music fan, the Grand Ole Opry is a neat please to go to get a real feel of what Nashville is all about. Some of the younger artists that we saw there were really great! We were also lucky enough to see Terri Clark and Vince Gill. The line-up is different each night, so be sure to check out their website. I also did a backstGe “Behind the Curtain” tour before the show started. We went in all the dressing rooms and got to see backstage. We even ran into one of the young singers that was performing that night! This tour was thanks to my coach and her husband for making Diamond rank and it was a great surprise!
After the show our team did a backstage tour. It was similar to the tour I did before the show but with a lot more people. We didn’t get to go in the dressing rooms on this tour, just walk by and look in them. It was still a great tour and experience.

General Jackson River Cruise (Showboat)
-There is a lunch or a Dinner cruise. We went on the lunch cruise. We payed at extra $8/person once we were there to go with the captain for a tour of the control room. They took the first 25 people who were interested. The buffet food was really good, and the Show was fantastic. All of the musicians and singers in the band were so good, and they looked like they were having so much fun! After the show we got to go around on the boat and sit up on the top deck where 2 of the performers tool requests and played some songs. Overall it was a great atmosphere and I would recommend it!

Segway in Downtown Nashville
Segway tours are always a lot of fun. Our tour guide, Sharon was really great. It was a 2.5 hour tour around Nashville. If you have never tried Segways, I would definitely recommend giving them a try. It is a great way to see the city.
Outlet Mall – Large mall and food court. We didn’t find it to have really cheap deals, but it isn’t as expensive as the regular stores.
How to get around:
The best options for getting around are Uber and Lyft. Download the app and watch for promos. As first time users we each got $100 in free rides from Lyft! Both Uber and Lyft are great options and much cheaper than a cab.
There is also a free bus that takes you around Nashville.
Hotels to stay at Downtown:
Hilton
Omni
Renaissance
Home Suites
You can also rent condos or lofts using VRBO or Airbnb.
I hope that you have a great time when you go to Nashville! It is a really fun place with lots to do and great entertainment everywhere you go! There are so many things to do in Nashville!
