Nashville is famous for its Southern culture and country music. It has also become one of the favorite locations in the United States for bachelor and bachelorette parties. There are countless bars and live music seemingly on just about every corner. Stag & Hen ranks Nashville as the second destination for bachelorette party destinations - behind only Las Vegas and ahead of places like Miami and Mexico.
Nashville also has plenty of great hotels to stay at - although here we will only discuss some great party ideas. For those looking for day activities in Nashville (and especially if it's one's first time there), consider taking some of the top tours in Nashville.

Nashville has plenty of opportunities for bar-hopping, shopping, superb foot, and lots of cool activities. It has become a dream destination for stag and hen parties alike, with its endless for those looking for a final fling.
A great bachelorette weekend in Nashville may go like starting with shopping and drinks in the 12 South Neighborhood and then heading over to Pinewood Social for bowling and games. The next day could have a visit to Arrington Vineyards for live music and wine-tasting. After a rest, start the evening with a private party on the HonkyTonk Express for barhopping on Lower Broadway, ending the night with a show at Skull's Rainbow Room.
Nashville is not only famous for being the capital of country music, but it has also become the Vegas of the South (and has earned itself the nickname Nashvegas). Even if there are members in the group under 21, most bars do permit everyone of all ages to stay until at least 6.00 pm.
