9 a.m.

Begin your downtown adventure at Steadfast Commons in the Encore building. Sister property of Steadfast Germantown, the Commons are known for their cocktail and coffee creations. Since it’s early, try the brûléed latte and savory porridge for a sweet-and-savory start to your day. Latte in hand, stroll the Broadway strip before the real heat and crowds arrive. Pop into a store, like the Ernest Tubb Record Shop if you’re into vinyl, or simply enjoy the calm before the storm.

Field Guide: Downtown Nashville

It wasn’t so long ago that downtown Nashville boasted a few honky-tonks and a barbeque joint, reminiscent of a dusty saloon town in an Old Western film. To anyone who still thinks of downtown that way, it’s time to fast-forward. Broadway and its sister streets now house as many modern and edgy establishments as classic Southern ones. A day in the neighborhood will please everyone from food lovers to CMA Fest fans—and even pleasantly surprise locals who might need to be reminded of the true magic of Nashville.
