Nashville’s appeal stretches far beyond Tennessee; people flock here from all over the world to experience the appealing blend of urban sophistication (take note of its gleaming skyline) and small-town southern hospitality. Of course, the music is a draw, as you listen to live country music and stroll beneath the neon-lit signs of the honky-tonks lining Broadway. And when you stay at Holston House Nashville, you’ll enjoy a chic and comfortable retreat in the heart of Music City.
A Nashville institution since the early ‘80s. Jack’s serves up its combo of Texas- and Tennessee-style beef brisket and regionally inspired sauces. Its Broadway location faces the historic Ryman Auditorium.
To give you an idea of the serving sizes, steaks are measured by the pound at Old Hickory Steakhouse. The eatery sits inside an antebellum mansion beneath a conservatory-style glass dome; don’t miss the indoor river and waterfall installation, truly a sight to behold.
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is worth a visit for the sheer kitsch factor alone. Among its 2.5-million artifacts are mementos and personal items from notable public figures. From an aerial view, the building forms the shape of a massive bass clef.
