This is the famous Tootsies Orchid lounge on Broadway. Lots of famous country stars have sung there and hung out in this iconic place. If you come to downtown at night you need to have at least one beer and listen to one set of music before you venture out again.
Looking down Broadway. The Bridgestone Arena(home of the Nashville Predators) on the left and Tootsies is on the right.
Here are a couple of places you need to visit while you are in Nashville. The Frist Museum in the old Post Office Building and the Union Station which are on the left side of the photo.
If you like to visit old churches, then this one is a good one to step inside. A free tour is given on certain days. This is an Episcopal Church known as Christ Church on Broadway. Just on the other side is the Tennessee Art League Building, which if you fancy local artwork, then venture inside.
On Music Row is the controversial statues "Musica" by sculpture, Alan LeQuire. It stands 38 feet tall. They are dancing nude and occasionally such as St. Paddy's day they were found with clothes on the next morning. LeQuire also did the Athena which is located in the Parthenon in Centennial Park.
The kitty justice is I have given yawl a few places to visit when in town.

The Bridgestone arena looked so strange had to check it out....Have visited Nashville but only hit the main attractions.

Thanks for the tour. These are 'inviting' places and your pictures, as usual, are amazingly beautiful!

Maybe these tourist post will make you want to come back and see more of Nashville. When the new convention center is finished the NRA has already booked it for their convention.Peace

Maybe they are so inviting that you might book a vacation here. Peace

Thank you so much for showing downtown Nashville. Places I have heard about forever. Places I probably will never get to. So thank you again. MB
