Hipsters and honky tonk, welcome to Nashville

By day, explore Nashville's many historic sights, or go shopping for vintage threads and rare vinyl in hip East Nashville.

For the more active set, book a kayaking tour on the Harpeth River, or venture south of the city and hike around Radnor Lake State Park. After dark, head to the Gulch and sample some of the Deep South's famed barbecue. But whatever you do, don't miss the live music in 1 of the many country music bars and clubs on Broadway.
