the planning process, complete with Nashville bachelorette party tips,
recommendations and resources to make your event memorable. Tips include:
Getting Around Nashville If you are flying into Nashville and staying downtown, why not take the MTA Airport Shuttle and save over $20. www.nashvillemta.org
If you are staying downtown or in Midtown or East Nashville, you will
not need, nor will you want, a car. (See map below) Downtown hotels
charge up to $25/day for parking.
Best way to get around during your stay is with Uber, Lyft or the Music City Circuit It's more affordable than taxis and drivers are usually locals, so they can share their knowledge of Nashville during your ride. The Music City Circuit is a free shuttle that goes from downtown Riverfront to the Gulch area, every 15 minutes. For the schedule, click here.
Lay of the Land: All the major honkytonks, along with the business district, are located in lower Broadway area of downtown, also referred to as "LoBro". 4th Ave. at Broadway is probably the center of that area. The new Music Center Convention Center is about two blocks east od Broadway, as is the Country Music Hall of Fame. 2nd Ave crosses Broadway and is one block from our Riverfront Park. There are only 1-2 bars (and an outstanding hostel) on 1st Ave. Most of the action is on 2nd Ave and Broadway. 2nd Ave is the historic area of downtown. The buildings are well over 200 years old. Very close to LoBro is the Gulch area which is new and trendy. You can access the Gulch from LoBro by foot, but it's a difficult walk. You can also use the Music City Green Circuit, which is a free shuttle that runs continuously from Riverfront to the Gulch.
The next leading bustle area is "Midtown" which includes the Vanderbilt area, Music Row and West End. There are lots of hotels, restaurants and bars in this area. It's only 1-2 miles from downtown and can be walked on a pretty day. You will see less tourists in Midtown and most of the bars have live music, as well, but not as extensive as the touristy downtown area.
East Nashville, 12th Ave, and Germantown are other pockets of trendy bars and restaurants that are within 3-4 miles of downtown. There are no hotels in these communities, but lots of AirBNB and VRBO rentals. The only other large areas for hotels are Opryland Hotel area (8 miles away with zero nightlife) and airport area (8 miles away and zero nightlife), While the Franklin/Brentwood community has lots of hotels, restaurants, shopping and bars, and is lovely for a 1/2 day trip, 25 miles is kind of far from the action of downtown.
