1. Enjoy some free music
Nashville is also known as the Music City. So maybe you want to listen to some free music while you are in the city. If you do, then go to the Nashville Symphony's free community concert series. Every summer you can listen here to both classicial as well as popular music.
2. Do a free walking tour
When you want to learn about the city with a local guide, do a free walking tour! A tour which I would recommend is the one by Free Nashville Walking Tours. They offer a 2-hour walking tour once per week during which your guide will tell you all about downtown Nashville! However, be sure to reserve your spot beforehand!

To learn more about the history of the state of Tennessee, go to the Tennessee State Museum. You find here all kinds of historical objects, such as art, furniture, photographs, textiles, and many other things.

At the Nashville Shakespeare Festival you can see all kinds of live Shakespeare performances, with a different one each year. Performances are in summer at Centennial Park and in winter at Troutt Theater.
5. Stroll through Centennial Park
For a relaxing stroll through the park head to Centennial Park. It is a park with a great history. As it was originally farmland, later used as an exposition site, and now for more than 100 years used as a park. While you are in Centennial Park you should definitely also look at the Parthenon, which is a replica of the Parthenon in Athens! It was built in 1897 during the Tennessee Centennial Exposition and looks really impressive.

At the Vanderbilt Blair School of Music and Belmont School of Music you can enjoy hundreds of free concerts every year.
