Found the best prices for t-shirts and souvenirs at Cotton Eyed Joe's, on the corner of Broadway and Second Ave. The store could use a good dusting. The staff was helpful, when... read more

Would not recommend, surly staff to begin with and when I went back to exchange an item for a different size was told bluntly that there was a no return policy and this was not negotiable! Beware if you buy anything and then want to exchange.

Don't waste your time or money going in here, unless you like cheap and crappy looking tshirts and souvenirs ! We did buy 2 tshirts from here but everything else was Dollar General style items ! I let myself splurge on tshirts and such at the Opry and other places we went around town !

Great little shopping area with unique stores such as Draper James and lots of restaurants. Unique little boutique shops.

What more can I say other than if you want to really feel the city, you have to walk it! Some of it is tourist oriented, quite a bit is designed for fans of particular musicians. So what? It's NASHVILLE and it's ALL good!

Loved shopping here, on my recent trip to Nashville. Found a cute outfit for my daughter, also cowgirl boots for the two of us. Everyone we met in the stores was super friendly and helpful. Local restaurants and ever-present live music were both appreciated.

This area is kinda touristy, did not get the feel that many locals here. But if you are looking for a drink or just going shopping for all of the friends back home, this is a good place to go. I probably would not spend more than a hour or so here,

Oh wow, could you have all the fun the world here. No matter what music or atmosphere you are into, it's there. It reminded me of Vegas without the casinos. Cannot wait to get myself back to Nashville!

A must visit if you are in Nashville, Lots of restaurants, bars, and souvenir shops. Always fun to just walk around and pop in and out of the shops. My daughter and wife especially enjoyed the candy shop with "old time candy", the stuff you used to get when you were a kid (i'm 42yo) Reminds me of my childhood

Restaurants, Wildhorse Saloon, Hard Rock Cafe, Hooters, Coyote Ugly, Spaghetti Factory etc., etc. Lots of great eateries, hard to choose. Lots of bars if you get thisrty. Boot, and clothing stores, souvenirs of all kinds. If you like to shop the Second Avenue Shopping District is the place. You can find some bargains if you look.
