Where to stay in Nashville if you want to immerse yourself in the musical culture that made this city what it is? In the southwest of the city, we find the Music Row district. Rather modern and kitschy – with its brightly lit buildings housing a jumble of independent labels, recording studios, radio stations and TV channels – it’s recommended for music lovers, who can visit the famous RCA Studio B after strolling the paths of Owen Bradley Park, named in honor of the famous musician. An interesting anecdote to be aware of when looking for accommodation in Nashville’s bustling neighborhood: the streets in the area are named after stars of the music industry and show business.

Downtown is the heart of Nashville! It’s located around the capitol and Broadway. The reason we’re telling you about it is that here, ultra-modern buildings and period buildings stand side by side, forming a heterogeneous, even jarring, architectural whole!

But don’t worry, it’s easy to find an apartment to rent or a hotel room overlooking the Cumberland River or Riverfront Park, where the more athletic can go for a morning jog.

Be sure to visit the Musicians Hall of Fame Museum, plan an outing to the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, the Tennessee Performing Arts or discover the bars and concert cafés lining Union Street or Church Street. The city is yours!
