Nashville, Tennessee, USA

The Basics

With so many attractions packed in, Downtown Nashville deserves a prominent spot on any itinerary in the city. While the neighborhood is easily explored on foot, you can also hop in a horse and carriage for a tour of attractions like the Johnny Cash Museum and Tennessee State Capitol. Night owls can experience the best of downtown aboard a BYOB open-air party bus as it cruises through Lower Broadway and Downtown Nashville.

Nashville Combo Tour: Sightseeing, Murals, and Brewery
The Nashville Combo golf cart tour was the highlight of our weekend trip! Our tour guide Jeremiah was the best! He was very knowledgeable and kept us laughing along the way with tidbits of history and fun facts. We were able to see so much of Nashville and were able to spend more/less time in certain areas based on what our group enjoyed. It was a great way to see all the beauty and landmarks the city has to offer. Would definitely recommend this tour and Jeremiah as your guide!!!
