Best Hotels in Nashville for Memorial Day Weekend

Updated: Sep 21, 2023

Celebrate the traditional kickoff of summer—and take the time to honor the service members at the heart of the holiday—with a Memorial Day getaway in Downtown Nashville and accommodations here at The Countrypolitan!

Positioned right in the heart of Music City at the corner of Union Street and Printers Alley, this newly reimagined Nashville destination occupies a wonderful historic building dating from the turn of the last century— the perfect home base for enjoying the holiday weekend.

Memorial Day Music & Theater in Nashville

Rest assured you’ll have plenty in the realm of live music and other onstage entertainment over Memorial Day Weekend: This is Nashville we’re talking about, after all!

Along with a whole slew of honkytonks, music clubs, and other nearby establishments—and our own live music calendar here at The Countrypolitan—there are numerous large-scale concerts on the roster.

For example, the Beach Boys will be teaming up with the Nashville Symphony at Schermerhorn Symphony Center from Thursday, May 25th through Saturday, May 27th. Over at the Ryman, meanwhile—mere blocks away from The Countrypolitan Nashville—shows around the holiday weekend include the Backstreet Lovers on May 25th, Emily King on May 26th, and It’s Time on May 27th.

Dave Matthews Band will be taking the stage at the Bridgestone Arena on May 26th, while City Winery Nashville hosts the Southern Entertainment Awards on May 28th.

And among multiple shows presented through the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, Into the Woods—the Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine—is bringing its Broadway cast to Andrew Jackson Hall from May 23rd through the 26th.

Reflect on the Holiday

Among multiple places rife for mulling the deeper meanings of Memorial Day, consider a visit to Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, where you can stroll through time along the Pathway of History and pay your respects at the Tennessee World War II Memorial.

Close by, the Tennessee State Museum is another excellent Memorial Day Weekend destination. While its Military Branch is currently closed for renovation, the main museum still has much to offer relevant to the occasion, not least the exhibition Remembrance: Military Representation Through Public Art at the State Capitol.

Getting Outdoors

Besides the loveliness of Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, you’ve got just about endless opportunities to soak up some start-of-summer warmth and sunshine on a Memorial Day stay at The Countrypolitan Nashville.

The Cumberland River just a stone’s throw away tempts with Riverfront and Cumberland parks, and meanwhile you can weave together any number of such parklands as well as numerous Nashville neighborhoods by foot or bicycle on close to 100 miles of official Greenways. You also aren’t hurting in the golf-course department, either…
