For those who want a look at what living downtown can be like, the 15th annual Downtown Home Tour can provide a lot of answers.
Sponsored by the Nashville Downtown Partnership, the event is scheduled from noon-5 p.m. on April 15. Historic and modern mingle here to deliver a neighborhood like no other. Visitors will find living spaces in historic and rehabbed buildings as well as homes in brand new projects.
Attendees can visit the sites in any order and at their own pace between noon and 5 p.m. Tickets may be purchased online or on the day of the event beginning at 11:45 a.m at the Nashville Downtown Partnership office.
Wrist identification must be presented to enter the properties and to access free shuttle rides.
The Nashville Downtown Partnership’s definition of downtown is an area bounded by the I-40/I-65 Loop on the south and west, the river on the east, and Jefferson Street on the north.
In a 2017 survey of downtown residents—of which the organization says there are 10,000—respondents reported the most positive reasons to live downtown are the convenience of the central location, the urban experience, the proximity to work, and the varied restaurant selection.
