1st timer taking all advise!

Instead of asking a million separate questions...please tell me any advise/suggestions or good to knows about Nashville. We are staying at Home 2 Suites by Hilton for 3 nights early September. I would like to make the most of our time. Food, honkey tonks, shows, tours, museums, anything that you would put at the top of your list. I appreciate any feedback and look forward to looking up your ideas. Thank you

Make sure you bring plenty of dollar bills. They pass the buckets around in the bars where live music is playing. That's how the entertainers get paid. There is so much live music in Nashville. My favorite place is The Stage. I'll be in Nashville this coming week for 5 days. There are golf carts that you can ride for short distance trips. Just tip the driver what you feel like giving. Have fun.

A roll of $1s and $5s is good advice.

I'd add that you should read through the "Top Questions" list on the right side of this page. It covers many of the most common questions and is full of great information that we DEs have categorized as best we can for ease of use.

When we travel somewhere we know we're going to be doling out a lot of small tips, we order a strap (100 bills) of $2 bills from our bank. The $2 notes are unique, so the recipient is almost always enamored when they receive them and it's just a little bit more to show that we appreciate what the provider has done.

BTW, the bands are not only playing for tips, they do get paid by the establishments where they're playing, but as in the case of most workers who rely on tips, they rely on the tips to make it worthwhile.
