Nashville is increasingly easy to navigate these days, with unique neighborhoods taking shape all over town and offering entertainment, shopping, and dining all within a few blocks. You can easily get around using any combination of ride-sharing, cabs, motorized scooters, public transportation, rented bicycles, and your feet; however, if you aren’t comfortable with those modes of transportation, a car will be helpful. Downtown and many other areas are relatively compact, making it easy to hit several high points and get a feel for a part of town without too much traveling.
The first rule: Let your interests dictate what you choose to do. Not much for history? Skip the Hermitage. Don’t like spicy foods? There are tons of things to eat that aren’t hot chicken. Don’t like country music? Not a big deal. (Yes, really.) You shouldn’t let Keith Urban shame you into wasting time somewhere you don’t want to be—and you shouldn’t take advice from anyone with that haircut anyway. The important thing is to know what you like and decide what to do based on that. The itineraries here can be experienced year-round and focus primarily on country music, history, culture, and entertainment.
