Things to Do and See While in Nashville

The Vanderbilt campus is located just over a mile from Downtown Nashville and there are several things to do and see while in town. Many downtown hot spots are walking distance from campus; others can be reached via a short cab ride. Both Uber and Lyft also offer transportation services in Nashville.


  • The Frist Center for the Visual Arts is located just down the street from the Vanderbilt Campus and features the work of internationally renowned artists. In late March, the Frist will be featuring “Telling Tales: Stories and Legends in 19th Century American Art” which examines American cultural aspirations and everyday life through painting and sculpture.

  • Robert’s Western World. Located on lower Broadway and across from the famous Ryman Auditorium, Robert’s Western World is one of the most popular honky-tonks in town.  Honky-tonks are are bars where live country music is played and going “honky-tonking” is a Southern experience that is not to be missed!  Roberts fills up fast, so it is best to go early if you want to get a table.

  • The Nashville Palace. Located by the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center, The Nashville Palace also offers live country music but with a more laid back atmosphere than is typically found at the honky-tonks on Broadway.  The Palace is also famous for its Sunday night spaghetti and meatball special!

Spring comes early to the mid-south, so by late March the day time temperatures will typically be in the mid-60’s with plenty of sunshine.  However, the temperature can (and does) drop at night, so be sure to bring a jacket!
