We loved walking down the streets of Nashville! Sooo many bars to stop in and every one of them had very good live entertainment.

Music in almost every building on broadway. People partying and having a good time. All kinds of music, food, fun. Shops, specialty stuff, music, food, bars, karaoke, more food, more bars, more music. Did I mention food and bars? I don't drink and I had a blast.

Must do bucket list. Honky tonks were more fun and entertaining than I expected. Restaurants are numerous and food is outstanding.
