Ten Things To See In Nashville, Tennessee


We’re already getting excited about our trip to Nashville for AdvisorCon 2019! With a thriving nightlife and a myriad of specialty museums, Nashville is an exciting American destination city. Because there’s so much to see and do, we made a list of our favorites; most of which are near the Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites, our official conference hotel. With the weather looking to be a high of 72 and a low of 52, we can’t wait!


1. Hear the famous “Nashville sound” at the Country Music Hall of Fame

1.1 mi from the hotel – 6 min drive or 20 min walk
Admission: $25-$30 

Nashville, aka Music City, USA, is the heart of American country music history, with one of the largest museums in the world dedicated to this American art. The Country Music Hall of Fame is also home to the Historic RCA Studio B, where artists such as Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton and Waylon Jennings once recorded their most signature songs. Often referred to as the “Smithsonian of country music”, it boasts two floors housing over 2 million artifacts.


2. Iconic Music Venue: Station Inn

0.3 mi from the hotel – 6 min walk
Admission: $12-$15 

If you want a real, untouched “spirit of Nashville” venue, look no further than the Station Inn. This is an intimate space to experience live bluegrass, blues, roots and Americana music. Word on the street is to be sure to get dinner first, as this venue is a bar, not a dinner spot. For only a $12-$15 cover, you can expect one of the best nights of your Nashville experience.  


3. Catch a show at the Grand Ole Opry

9.5 mi from the hotel – 20 min drive
 Admission: $55 

This is Nashville’s #1 attraction! You’ve heard of this historic concert hall where many stars began their careers.  Catching a show here is an opportunity to experience the live-radio show that made country music popular. Shows happen almost every night and feature a variety of eight or more artists. If you’re a big country fan, stay through Saturday, May 18th and catch Old Medicine Crow headlining that night’s show!
