The lower Broadway turns into a honky-tonk central with it blazing nightlife, with the Nashville sounds from the numerous watering joints such as the Tootsies Orchid Lounge. But that is not all this Music city has to offer there are a lot of activities for families such as a visit to the Adventure Science Center and the Nashville Zoo at Grasmere.
