From the early 1930s into the 60s and 70s, downtown Nashville was the place to be for shopping, accommodations and entertainment. With curious attractions like Harvey’s Department Store, the veritable who’s who of patrons to the historic Maxwell House Hotel, and the always-hopping Printer’s Alley nightlife, downtown played host to many unique and authentic Nashville experiences.
The Ryman is known around the globe as one of the best performance halls in the world. When you walk through the doors of the historic Ryman Auditorium, one thing becomes clear right away: this isn’t just another nightly music venue, and it’s so much more than a daytime tourist stop. This place is hallowed ground. This is the exact spot where bluegrass was born—where Johnny Cash met June Carter, where souls were saved and a slice of history was nearly lost.
Unlike any traditional museum you’ve ever visited, the Frist Art Museum has become a magnet for Nashville’s rapidly expanding visual arts scene.
