According to Nashville’s Visitor & Convention Bureau: "A honky tonk is an establishment that contains a least one rockin’ stage, cold beverages, and live music that lasts all day, every day."
As a first-timer, you’ll probably end up deciding where to hang out based on the crowd level, if you like the current music being played, and whether or not you vibe with the overall ambiance.
It’s hard to envision exactly how compact Honky Tonk Highway is, as well as to imagine the various locations in relation to one another. For this reason, we’ve put together the following map that is incredibly helpful if you’re a Nashville first-timer!
Downtown Nashville is fairly compact, so most people choose to walk whenever possible. The best way to get around the city of Nashville when walking isn’t feasible, however, is by ride-share services like Uber or Lyft.
If you want to be close to the action, I totally recommend that you stay in Downtown Nashville, within an easy walk to Honky Tonk Highway. There are Airbnbs and some of the best hotels.
