5 Best Hotels near Downtown Nashville

Nashville was founded in the late 18th century near the settlement of Fort Nashborough, which was named after a decorated Revolutionary War hero. The city's valuable location made it an important strategic point for both the North and the South during the Civil War; it stayed in Union hands during much of the struggle. After the war, the city discovered great prosperity, remnants of which can still be found in the buildings of the downtown area. During the Great Depression, the area got an economic boost from the construction and energy produced by the Tennessee Valley Authority. Since then, Nashville has experienced tremendous economic growth and prosperity. The city took advantage of the 1990's boom by increasing construction and restoring old landmarks.

Like the rest of the Southeast U.S., Nashville experiences a subtropical climate with moderately cold winters and hot humid summers. Temperatures during the peak summer months hover in the high 80's. Tourists are attracted to the city from spring to fall for the extensive music scene, Civil War history, and rich cultural tradition.

Attractions

Country Music Hall of Fame and Music Review
Nashville is synonymous with country music, so it's practically obligatory that you visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Music Review when you're in town. Featuring tributes to country's brightest stars like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Dolly Parton, the expansive museum will take you at least a few hours to get through. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Music Review also sponsors rotating film events and live performances throughout the year.

The Wild Horse Saloon
Part tavern, part restaurant, the Wild Horse Saloon is the stuff of Nashville legends, boasting repeat visits from many of Nashville's musical elite.

If you find yourself in the mood for a cocktail or a nip of that classic Tennessee whiskey, the Wild Horse is the place to go.

Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Museum of Art
Nashville isn't all about country music. In fact, the music city has a world-class art scene as well. At the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Museum of Art, you can get a glimpse at the region's indigenous plant life in all of its well-maintained glory, complete with outdoor sculptures from some of the world's greatest artists.
