    as far as food is concerned from a local:
    burgers: The Pharmacy
    Hot chicken: Hattie B’s
    BBQ: Jack’s BBQ (the one that’s not on Broadway)
    Wild card: The Grilled Cheeserie

    I have lived in BNA over 40 years. Our infrastructure is nowhere close to keeping up, especially with the massive influx of people moving here.

    That said, no, we do not walk around in cowboy boots. You nailed that that is a sure sign of a bachelorette party in the wild. Dress comfortably. Go to some of the historical places like Cheekwood and the Hermitage. But if you’re staying downtown you WILL need a car! Arrington is close and worth it as is Nolensville and Franklin.

    Hit up Hattie B’s for hot chicken, Gabby’s for a burger, Husk for a fab experience, Kanye Prime for a high end (high $$$$) experience, The Southern for an incredible anytime menu, and Etch for chef table seating.

    Nashville is not the same. The mayor has ruined Nashville just to make his pockets bigger. There are shootings every night.

  4. Daytime Frank on June 22, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Here visiting Nashville now. Having lots of fun and yes, plenty of drunk people downtown. Went to the Opry and enjoyed the show even though I’m not a big county music fan.

  5. Diane Scalf on June 22, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    I was born here, that’s why I now live in Kingston Springs. Too many transplants. Not the Nashville I care for anymore, too many bars and alcoholics.

  6. Glenn Harless on June 22, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Don’t eat at Darfon’s…less for more !!

  7. Tanille Cramer on June 22, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    Just visited a few weeks ago!!! DONT expect to find cheap parking!!!! Ridiculous

  8. Tim Price on June 22, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    I live about 75 miles away from Nashville and went here 3 or 4 times a week when I was younger. I worked in Nashville when I was younger, I will not go to Nashville now. Too many liberals and criminals which are basically the same thing. I will drive around Nashville rather than going thru Nashville. Too many murders and robberies now! I feel sorry for any decent people that are stuck living in Nashville!

  9. Markone on June 22, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Hattie B’s

  10. Joe Johnston on June 22, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    The Yankee invasion….go Home

  11. zplexone on June 22, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    This one is easy, no need for a 14 minute video. There’s really only one "don’t." Just don’t visit Nashville. It’s hot, crowded, and has incredibly high violent crime rates. Really I would just stay out of Tennessee all together. The state of Tennessee as a whole has higher violent crime rates than Seattle or Portland.

  12. Michael Clinard on June 22, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    You want some good hot chicken from Nashville it’s called pepper fire but be warned it will send you to the hospital if you’re not careful they have to wear hazmat suits to make it

  13. Rose the Cockapoo!! on June 22, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    1. only tourists wear cowboy boots.
    2. don’t say “ye-haw” or “howdy.”
    3. don’t say “you all” or “you guys;” it’s Y’ALL!
    4. please please please don’t move to nashville (or surrounding areas like brentwood, franklin, nolensville, etc.) it’s too crowded here!!

  14. Theodore Cossitt on June 22, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Grand Ol’ Opry, Tuesday and Saturday, live shows with numerous artists, both old and new. Broadcast on SeriusXM Willie’s Roadhouse (I think it’s channel 59)

  15. John Brown on June 22, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    Also, DO NOT bother the celebrities if you see them. It’s considered bad form in Nashville. The locals might call you out for it. They live here BECAUSE they aren’t bothered.

  16. Jeff Crafton on June 22, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    NO SHOUT OUT TO nashville palace ?

  17. True Trizzy on June 22, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    party foul is good also i live in Nashville my whole life

  18. Kristina and the German on June 22, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    Forgot to mention awesome, local breweries and the Nash Trash bus……

  19. Michael V on June 22, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    Lived here for 4 years. I miss good food.

  20. Theodore Cossitt on June 22, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    I live in Hermitage….Andrew Jackson’s Home is considered to be one of the best done and most accurate setup of a historic home.

  21. John Brown on June 22, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    There is no better place to see a concert than the Ryman. Its magic. It’s one of those special places that just feels thick with history.

  22. Tom Fortner on June 22, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Prince’s is the original hot chicken and is excellent. Hattie B’s came a little later and is also fantastic, but edged out Prince’s as far as operating and marketing a restaurant goes. Hattie B’s is definitely my go to though.

  23. Tunya Au on June 22, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    Do not get drunk and get on eScooter and then ride it on sidewalk. That is just waiting for a collision with cars. Be respectful and remember persons with disabilities will have trouble navigating the sidewalks that are littered with abandoned eScooters

  24. Gavin Damron on June 22, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    I miss the old Nashville when printers alley was a place you didn’t go, especially after dark.

  25. Michael Polson on June 22, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    From the Nashville healthcare folks: Don’t underestimate the heat. Alcohol + unrelenting sun + walking = dehydration or worse. Drink lots of water or you may get a very expensive unplanned tour of a local emergency department.

  26. Provost on June 22, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    Nashville is overrun by Yankees now. They are killing the city

  27. Bill Clay on June 22, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    You will meet alot of born bred Nashvillians if you leave Broadway. LOL We dont go downtown, so if you go to East Nash, well east nash cause implants took over that. But if you go further out then you will meet some natives but downtown. Nope. Not even the people who work the bars are locals. A few maybe but not many.

  28. Morgan Stoltz on June 22, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    From Montana, want to move to Nashville but I feel bad contributing to the influx because this has happened to Montana too, our infrastructure can’t handle the cars on the road or build enough apartments to keep up with living demands but I loved Tennessee, drove through the whole state and had plenty of good experiences there! 🥰

  29. Milly Watson on June 22, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    Going there next week and also to Memphis

  30. Paul Turner on June 22, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    Never been to Tennessee and never will. Lost a $#!+ load of money on a 1031 like kind exchange in Nashville. Even after the commercial property was sold, Tennessee kept coming back for more and more exit taxes. Seems that Tennessee was running a deficit and figured that out of state investors were an easy target.

  31. Gavin Damron on June 22, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    Is Nashboro still a thing or did the mayor tear that down too?

  32. Michael Hagans on June 22, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    Hattie B 🎉

  33. Vibewithcee Lynn on June 22, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    The best hot chicken for me is prince’s hot chicken . I’ve wen my whole life

  34. SwiftKickIt615 on June 22, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    Best place to eat hot chicken is in the hood. But visitors aren’t allowed. SORRY!!

  35. Gin Ichimaru on June 22, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    I-40 is hell on weekdays around 9am to 11am, and 3pm to 6pm.
    Lower Broad has really bad traffic at night and weekends. You’ve been warned.

  36. Chris K on June 22, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    Forget Hattie B’s and Princes. Go to big shakes in Franklin!

  37. Gene Wilkerson on June 22, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    We don’t call it Crashville for nothing.

  38. Andreeas on June 22, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    Stop the progressives from moving here

  39. K Halli on June 22, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    #1 Ok, Only those that are not from here call our roads Pike, Ie Gallatin rd (pike) Dickerson Rd (Pike) if you say Pike we know yer not from here. #2 Prince’s is who invented Hot Chicken all others may taste ok but Prince’s started it. #3 … most Nashvillians do not go Downtown. #4 It is legal to carry as long as your not drinking or a felon. #5 Try our Fishing Guides when you have the time, our River looks green but is well fed by deep mountain reservoirs. # 6 drive the Natchez Trace for a country ride. It goes all the way to Miss., take a picnic basket with you. #7 We are full, NO you cannot move here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. Vickie Riggan on June 22, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    I grew up there. Still love my town. I’ll move back when all y’all transplants leave.

  41. Sol Lelis on June 22, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Lugar lindo❣ Amei❣

    Meu sonho de consumo é Nashville… parabéns pelo vídeo❣🌹😘

  42. Citlali Guerrero on June 22, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    When is it a good time to go to Nashville?

  43. Reece Stratton on June 22, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    Born and raised in Nashville, but don’t live there any more. When I do get back home, my go-to Hot Chicken faves are Hattie B’s and Party Fowl (Party Fowl puts some creative spins on hot chicken- check the menu). Have fun visitors!

  44. Lucas Sokolowski on June 22, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    City is super ugly ! But the live music in bars on Broadway is fantastic !

  45. Miller Tring on June 22, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    Do: visit Nashville
    DO NOT: move to Nashville (especially Franklin)

  46. Joe Johnston on June 22, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    The Yankee invasion….go Home

  47. Rose Heart on June 22, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    All these. unwanted transplants who have just moved into Nashville and all of a sudden are experts in Nashville.

  48. James Bokesch on June 22, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    The big Gaylord Opry Hotel and convention center is also a destination. Botanical gardens and such! BRING MONEY 🤡🤡🤡

  49. Debbie Custard on June 22, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    How about the Bell Meade Plantation and winery

  50. Larry Dicus on June 22, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    The actual Nashvillians can’t stand the tourists. Just letting you know
