AIRBNB EXPERIENCES

Unique things to do in Nashville

Book unforgettable activities hosted by locals on Airbnb.

Travel like a local

Locals describe Nashville as a “big city that feels like a small town,” and to experience that feeling for yourself, take a break from Lower Broadway’s honky-tonks to find more unique things to do in Nashville. Head to a recording studio for your own session near the Gulch, or into North Nashville where you can paint to hip hop beats. Moral of the story: Don’t stick to just one neighborhood. Take time for tours and activities that go beyond the famous sights — and sounds — with Airbnb Experiences.

Write & Take Home a Song from Nashville
You don't have to be a musician/songwriter to enjoy this experience: it's for everyone! The goal is to write something meaningful to you, that tells a piece of your own story and that you'll be able to take a recording of it home. I am fully Pfizer vaccinated. I have had 5 year olds that want to write about mermaids, to 90 year olds who want to write a song for their grandkids to everyone in between. Now, about our Experience: first, we'll meet in my recording studio in historic East Nashville. I always enjoy getting to know about your life and help you to find your inspiration/reason to write our song that day, if you don't already have a topic or lyrics. We will then begin our writing and recording process, and let the therapy begin! I want you to feel completely comfortable and to be open about your important life experiences, so we can hone in on your desired subject matter. I would love to know your favorite styles of music and artists so we can draw from inspiration resonating with you, personally. In the end, you’ll leave this experience with a recorded demo of the song we wrote together with vocals, violins, guitars galore. Other things to note: If you don't feel inspired that day, don't worry about it. You can just let me bring the creative flow and point out your favorite parts.

Your guide to Nashville

Where do the locals hang out in Nashville?

The people who know this city best love sharing their delicious food, warm weather, and multifaceted music scene with brides-to-be and music lovers, but you’ll be hard pressed to find them in downtown Nashville (with exceptions like catching a show at Ryman Auditorium).

Each neighborhood or district has its own personality (keep an eye out for the city’s colorful murals to prove it). Places like North Nashville showcase the thriving Buchanan Arts District; meanwhile across the Cumberland River in East Nashville (or “East Nasty”) you’ll find trendy coffee shops, restaurants, and boutiques. For a family-friendly vibe, head over to Sylvan Park or Germantown to explore beautiful historic homes, lush parks, and more shopping and dining.


What do locals eat in Nashville?

At its heart, Nashville is all about the down-home cooking, but it’s not all barbecue, meat-and-threes, biscuits, hot chicken, and Tennessee whiskey (but yes, those are all delicious too). It’s also a multicultural city, with immigrants from around the globe elevating the Music City dining scene with European, Asian, and African influences around every corner.

For the real Southern classics, check out the Nations neighborhood for regional favorites like a slugburger (it’s tastier than it sounds), barbecue, pizza, and brews. For global cuisine, head over to Nolensville Road for Turkish and Latin American menus in stylish restaurants and laid-back taquerias. Back in 2014, President Obama even made a stop along this stretch to visit a beloved family-owned and -operated Mexican restaurant known for its homemade tortillas.

And for those staying closer to downtown, head over to 12 South or the Gulch District. While it is definitely still a busy part of town for visitors and college students, there are more than just barbecue and bars here: think vegetarian options, dumplings, and artisanal coffee spots.


What are unique things to do in Nashville?

Find live music with history. What you hear, and where you hear it, is part of the adventure here in Nashville that is world famous for places like the Grand Ole Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame, and Music Row. And there’s plenty to appreciate when it comes to Nashville’s music scene.

Catch a live performance of the Fisk Jubilee Singers

This a cappella group first formed in 1871. In 1892, they would go on to play for Queen Victoria at Jubilee Hall in London. Upon hearing the group perform, as the story goes, the queen remarked that they must be from the “Music City.”

While we’ll never know if the Queen really said that (the city’s nickname didn’t catch on until the 1950s), there is no doubt that for more than 150 years, the Fisk Jubilee Singers have represented the importance of preserving musical traditions of the American South.
