As a native and local Nashvillian, let me be the first to welcome you if you're makingthe trip here for CMA Fest this week! It's an event I try to avoid year after year, but thisyear I've decided to embrace the chaos. As much as I complain about the amount of people downtown, it's a fun week and truly shows Nashville at it's finest. Dress for hot hot weather and don't be afraid to wear cowboy boots, though I would leave the cowboy hat at home. They're an instant give-away that you're a tourist.
If you're looking for things to do, I love this Guide to Nashville. It hassome great tips for making the most of your trip here.
