Guitar strings and cowboy boots in Downtown Nashville

Downtown Nashville has been rocking to the twang of nickel guitar strings and the bump of honky-tonks for decades. Cowboys and country stars all flocked this way to make their name in the footsteps of Hank Williams and Waylon Jennings. The saloons swayed and the street corners buzzed with songs of railroads and whiskey drinking. That still happens today, but the whole area is also packed with shimmering landmarks like the AT&T Building, while acclaimed institutions like the Musicians Hall of Fame and the Tennessee State Museum also make an appearance all just a stone's throw from Downtown Nashville vacation rentals.

Boogie down in Downtown Nashville

You certainly won't have to stray far along the sidewalks from the door of your Downtown Nashville vacation rentals to discover the beating lifeblood of this city: Music. Gritty country ditties echo in the music bars, the blues clubs twang with Delta tunes, and there's always a street entertainer strumming with stars in their eyes. Chances to taste hickory-smoked Southern BBQ food, or slap down shots of Tennessee bourbon also abound, while picnicking and strolling the bridge-topped parks along the Cumberland River is always a joy.

Downtown Nashville is packed to the brim

There's never a dull moment between the blocks of Downtown Nashville _ especially for music lovers. Hit the totemic Musicians Hall of Fame & Museum to wonder at tom toms struck in Woodstock, piano keys twinkled by Elton John, relics of Michael Jackson, and Glen Campbell's old guitars. Then, it's onto the Johnny Cash Museum, with its nostalgic celebration of the South's iconic Man in Black. You can also unravel tales of the Civil War and the Antebellum period in the Tennessee State Museum, or gawp at glorious neoclassical architecture by the Tennessee State Capitol.

Join the party season in Downtown Nashville

While you're always likely to find rambunctious blues gigs and country singers echoing in the honky-tonk bars of Downtown Nashville, you're better off waiting for the warm summer months to hit the city if you really want to get in the festive Southern spirit. Between May and August each year, ad hoc street players will pepper the blocks, and open-air rock concerts pop up in Riverfront Park, imbuing the district with a style and groove that's difficult not to love. What's more, those dry, warm months are also the perfect time to wander the sights and riverside walks of the city.

Downtown Nashville is for the city slickers

Downtown Nashville vacation rentals are nestled right in the heart of the thrumming Music City of the South. Encased in blocks of urban sprawl, they are perfect for hitting the rambunctious bars and saloons, the famous music museums and capitol buildings. When it comes to tasting the great outdoors, you'll either need to get your fix from the manicured green spaces of Riverfront Park on the bends of the Cumberland River, or head across the bridges to the Shelby Bottoms Nature Center & Greenway _ think dog walking tracks, birding spots, and ecology workshops.
