    Fort Negley is essentially the ruins of a civil war Fort. I can see why they built a fort here- it is quite possibly the highest point in the city. There are great views of the downtown area. It is a ...  more »

    This was an interesting place to explore. I went about 7pm and it very quiet, not busy at all. Was a good spot to see the sunset too. I appreciated the signs with the information and history.  more »

    We went on a really cold day, so we weren't able to look around much, but the grounds were still pretty and very informative.

    Fantastic place to start a Civil War tour of Tennessee and the South. A massive fort with a beautiful view of the city. Be sure and check the hours of operation before you plan your trip if you want to include the visitor center.

    Great information and a wonderful movie. This can be a quick hour stop that is well worth the visit. Staff is super knowledgeable and helpful. They have more information on local events and other sites than most other locations. They also sponsor wonderful Civil War talks. Love this place! The fort itself needs restoration help.

Where to stay in Nashville

Stay in downtown, midtown, the west end, or near Vanderbilt to be at the center of it all in Nashville. You'll find plenty of boutique hotels and major chains in all of these areas, which give you great access to the downtown music scene and beyond. While you can find a bit of everything in downtown Nashville, from larger hotels to apartment rentals, keep in mind that more affordable, and often quainter, options are located further from Broadway. Travelers looking to spend most of their time at the Grand Ole Opry should consider accommodations in the Opryland or Music Valley area near the airport.
