Compare Car Hire in Nashville
Nashville, Tennessee's capital city, is just north of the state right on the Cumberland River. Named after Francis Nash in 1779, Nashville is the most populated city in the whole of Tennessee, as well as being a favourite among tourists too.
Lovingly labelled as the ‘music city,’ Nashville is known for its country music legends such as Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn and Vince Gill – just to name a few. Along with these locals, other famous performers have also played here, including Dolly Parton and Hank Williams.
As well as the music scene, Nashville is also known as the Athens of the South – as there are many higher learning institutions and architecture that resemble Athens. As well as this, there is a full-scale replica of The Parthenon in Centennial Park.
Within the city, there are bars, restaurants, and performance venues all over that offer live music, talks and seminars every day of the week. There is a little something for everyone here and we absolutely love this city for its diversity, culture and bustling atmosphere. Nashville truly is a one of a kind place that everyone should see, given the opportunity.

Things To Do in Nashville
Nashville is a unique southern city that has just about everything anyone could want. It has so much to do and see that you won’t want to miss – but where do you start?
The Ryman Auditorium
Right in the heart of Nashville you will find the Ryman Auditorium. This is one of the world’s most iconic music venues of all time. So many stars have played here during its 135 year history – and even to this day people strike to perform here. If you’ve got some time in the state, we recommend booking one of the tours so you can truly see the auditorium in all of its glory. Along with this, it is a great place to start your walk around the area, as there are some incredible music bars local to the auditorium.
Country Music Hall of Fame
Country music is huge in Nashville, and we mean huge. It is no wonder that the Country Music Hall of Fame is situated here with hundreds of people coming to visit it every single day. From the likes of Loretta Lynn to Taylor Swift, you are bound to see someone you recognise and probably didn’t even realise started in the country music scene. When visiting, however, make sure you book tickets before arriving. It is one of Nashville’s most popular attractions, so you are going to want to make sure you can get in when you arrive – so avoid disappointment and book ahead of time!
John Seigenthaler Bridge
If you want epic views of Nashville, walk across the John Seigenthaler Bridge in the late afternoon or at sunset. From here, you’ll be able to see the city in a whole new light (literally) and see the state from above. Not only this, but you’ll also get to walk to Cumberland Park from here and see some more views of the city you may have otherwise missed. If you’re looking to see the sights as much as you can when you’re here, you may also want to consider taking a tourists bus. This bus is a double-decker Nashville city bus that has audio to teach you about places as you pass them. Most of these tours also go over the John Seigenthaler Bridge – so try to get a seat on the top of the bus to really see some exceptional views.
Eating Out in Nashville
Nashville’s culinary scene is on the up and up, with a new thing being invented every day. From fine dining, to sports bars with pub-grub, Nashville is more than just a big city when it comes to food.
Deb Paquette, the award winning chef, is front and centre at this modern restaurant. The unique open kitchen and bar means that you can sit, watch and interact with her as she cooks. This restaurant is ideal for lunch and dinner, especially for those who are fans of seafoods and steaks. We absolutely love how intimate this restaurant is, and you’ll come away with new favourite foods and new local friends.
Situated in a 1892 3-floor building, the Merchants is a bistro offering a variety of different options – depending on what you fancy. The bottom floor is a bistro, offering both cocktails and food. Then upward to the second level you’ll be able to tuck into lunch or dinner, with fine wines offered. If you make your way up to the third floor, you’ll be able to book private dining spaces for business dinners, meetings and events all year round. Both locals and tourists love Merchants, as it offers such a varying array of foods and dinning experiences.
Looking for creative cuisine and unique cocktails? Head on over to Tavern. Tavern is a great space for sports fans to enjoy the vast array of TVs, as well as their foodie friends being entertained by a menu with such variety they won’t know where to start. Tacos, salads, sandwiches, entrees, and fries are all served here – and the weekend brunch and late night dining options are also the perfect way to experience the food in Nashville.
The WeGo Transit is the main public transport system in Nashville. It can be distinguished by the purple buses that cover over 50 routes all over the city. WeGo offers buses that go to and from the Nashville Airport, so you don’t have to worry about how to get to and from the city when you arrive – and it also offers a free parking park and ride service too.
Along with public transport, Taxis, Ubers and Lyfts can also be found all over the city – not to mention the fact that Nashville is also quite easy to navigate by foot.
If you’re visiting for a while, however, and want to get around easily, we would recommend hiring a car as you are then not relying on others timetables to get to and from other places. By hiring a car you’re able to get to other areas in your own timeframe without having to rush or worry – just make sure you understand the rules of driving in America first.
