  • Great selection of books. I can get lost for hours in McKay's! Some book prices are a bit inflated, but some are priced incredibly reasonable. The only reason I can't give 5 stars is because they essentially screw you when you take stuff in for sale/trade. A book that is selling for $40+ used online, they were only willing to give about $2.00 for. That's just one example, and I feel their trade-in prices have seemingly gotten lower over the years. Overall, a great place to get lost for a few hours. They have a pretty extensive collection of vinyl also. Just be leery of trade-in credits...pay attention to your itemized list!
  • Wow ... shelf after shelf of used books ... HUGE store. Lots of non-fiction in every category imaginable, DVDs, games, and music also available. It was a little bit difficult to find what you were looking for, because sometimes you couldn't figure out the genre, and they were not completely alphabetized within categories. Having said all that, we shopped for nearly two hours, and came out with a huge box full of books. The prices were quite good ... many books were $3 or less, with quite a few under $1. Really fun shopping here!
  • I love this place!! Every time we visit Nashville, McKay's is one of our first stops. Great prices, and so many books you could spend hours looking around and not get to half of them. Great media and music sections as well, and our kids love sitting on the floor and reading while we shop. It's also a great place to take your used books, movies, and games for money or store credit. My brother just got almost $100 store credit for stuff taking up space on his shelves. Amazing!!
  • Incredible selection. Incredible prices. Friendly staff. Sometimes I just stop by for the smoothie lady that sets up in the parking lot. And free books out front. Love this store.
  • I had never heard of this place before. We went over lunch and the selection of used books, movies, and games was incredible. The prices were very reasonable. I will definitely be going back.

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.
