Fly your party to country music heaven in the rolling hills of Tennessee.
Nashville, Tennessee, affectionately known as “Music City,” is widely hailed as the birthplace of country music. Nashville is indeed home to an extraordinary history and a wealth of talent, and many people visit solely for the music scene.
But did you also know that Nashville is the bachelorette party capital of the United States? More on that in a moment…
Music fans visiting Nashville won’t need much of an itinerary. Just amble along the Honky Tonk Highway (also known as Lower Broadway Avenue) and enjoy the three Bs: bars, beer, and bands. There are more than 40 bars in a five-block stretch, each featuring live music every day and night. You’ll find it here whether you’re a fan of old-school country, new country, blues, or just good old rock and roll.
The inside secret behind all this wonderful music? It’s simple: some of the most talented musicians in the world live in Nashville. When they’re not busy making records or touring, many meet at their favorite local bars to play music together. At the right bar, on the right night, you might be regaled by some of country music’s most famous stars. Music lovers would be hard-pressed to find more musical talent packed into any other city in the world.
If you’re visiting Nashville for the first time, begin your venture with the Old Town Trolley tour. This is a hop-on and hop-off tour, with trolley cars arriving every few minutes. Your ticket grants you access to the trolley system for the entire day, so if you see something that catches your eye, don’t be afraid to hop off and explore it. When you’re ready for more, you can hop back on the next trolley car and continue on your way.
The narrated Old Town Trolley tour will show you many of Nashville’s highlights, from the Ryman Auditorium (home of the Grand Ole Opry) to the city’s life-size recreation of the ancient Greek Parthenon.
It also offers many opportunities to stop for a bite, peruse the local shops, or stroll through some of the city’s beautiful parks and pedestrian walkways. It’s a great way to get to know Nashville before setting out on a walking tour of its many bars, restaurants, and music venues later in the evening.
Discover Something New
The Honky Tonk Highway isn’t Nashville’s only musical offering. It’s impossible to go anywhere downtown without hearing music wafting from every open door. Drop in for happy hour at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, where legends like Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, and Loretta Lynn got their start, or explore the side streets and discover some of the lesser-known music spots for yourself.
If you’re lucky enough to get tickets, you can take in a show at the Bluebird Café, where a young Taylor Swift famously played her first Nashville performances. Other artists who began their careers in the Bluebird Café include Keith Urban, Garth Brooks, and many more. Not surprisingly, tickets sell out quickly, so plan ahead, and you might see country music’s next rising star.
Private Jet to Nashville
It’s probably clear by now why Nashville has become America’s favorite destination for bachelorette parties. There’s no better place in the country for brides-to-be and their entourage to celebrate in a fun, safe environment filled with music and revelry. Some bachelorettes like to plan their getaways, while others leave the arrangements to one of Nashville’s local agencies specializing in bachelorette parties. Either way, Nashville is the perfect destination. Pull on your cowboy boots, hand out some pink cowboy hats to your party, and head out for a night you’ll never forget.
