  • Very well maintained capitol building for Tennessee. Great views of the city and friendly staff!
  • cool place to walk around if visiting. not sure if there is a tour or not.
  • Located on a hill above downtown Nashville, the Tennessee State Capitol is one of the smaller state capitol buildings. Still, its very beautiful both inside and out. Also, make sure to visit the tomb of President James K. Polk on the grounds outside.
  • It's a historic building. If you have never seen State Government in action you need to go watch the Government in action.
  • Beautiful historic building. On a funny note I had no idea 'Davey' Crockett was a politician.

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.
