If—and that’s a big if—you have any energy left when you’re done at Synergy for the day, you absolutely cannot miss experiencing at least a little of what Nashville has to offer. Take a look at our top picks for things to do around town, and hurry up and book your hotel already! Space and discounted pricing are limited.
Hitch a Ride on Honky Tonk Highway
Head to lower Broadway—a.k.a. Honky Tonk Highway—where live music pours out of just about every bar and restaurant all day, every day. The best part? No cover charges. Come and go as you please to see why Nashville is the one and only home of country music.
Visit the Country Music Hall of Fame
You can’t visit Music City without dropping in to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Housing more than 2.5 million artifacts—everything from rare recordings to Mother Maybelle Carter’s 1928 Gibson L-5 guitar—this museum is the definitive home of American music.
Go Back Stage
Book a back-stage tour of the legendary Grand Ole Opry, just a 5-minute walk from the event venue. Peek into artists’ dressing rooms, enjoy an immersive theater experience and stand on the grand ole stage itself.
Seek Some Thrills
And team build while you’re at it! If you’re looking for a little adventure, book a zipline tour through the breathtaking Fontanel forests. Just 15 minutes from downtown Nashville, this is the perfect destination for a little thrill-seeking fun with your Kynect Family.
Step Back in Time
History buffs will appreciate a hassle-free tour package that includes visits to both the historical Belle Meade Plantation (complete with a free wine tasting) and Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage. Transportation is included with convenient pickup stops all over downtown Nashville.
Foodies rejoice, because there’s no shortage of delicious eats in Nashville. Hot chicken does find its origins here, but decades of Southern cooking traditions have mingled beautifully with immigrant influence, resulting in a truly impressive and diverse food scene. No way we could narrow it down to a few picks, so take this Eater guide and go nuts!
Music City on a Budget
If you’re traveling on a budget, don’t fret. There’s loads to do and see around town for free. Civil War monuments and forts, peaceful parks, a thriving art scene and more are waiting to be found if you’ve got time to look.
