Why We Love It
Nashville was born with music running through its veins and it’s got a history of musicians pouring their hearts and souls out for over 200 years.
And there’s no doubt that the city’s creative energy touches every aspect of what makes Nashville such a vibrant place—including its shopping. Hunt down records, eclectic musical instruments, local makers and score some major finds from Nashville’s up-and-coming fashion scene.
Nashville’s best shopping is spread throughout the city so you can explore, listen to some great tunes, and shop to your heart’s content.
Listen to a steady flow of (free!) music on Honky Tonk Highway as you pop in and out of local shops, bars, and boutiques.
Cross the Cumberland River to East Nashville for its eclectic and diverse vibe and its too-hard-to-pass-up vintage shops. Dive deeper into East Nashville’s Fatherland District for some funky antiques and even more local apparel shops.
The beauty of Music City is that it’s the perfect site for a little bit of history and a whole lot of shopping. And you’ve got tons of live music to keep your spirits up and your creative juices flowing. That’s just Nashville for you.
