The Segway Posse
Because the best way to see our great city is clearly by taking a segway tour complete with mandatory safety helmets.
The College Touree
She's the teenager here with her overzealous parents who's likely spending the weekend in Nashville in hopes of eventually obtaining an acceptance letter to Vandy, Lipscomb, and/or Belmont. While she's here, she's also checking out all the neighborhoods so she knows which parts of town are "super fun".
These tourists are here for business (and maybe a little pleasure). They’re easily identified by their sleek suits and the large badges that they wear around their neck at all times. Conventioneers stick pretty close to the Music City Center but might wander as far as Lower Broadway so that they can “experience Nashville.”
Super fans of both American Pickers and The Antique Roadshow, these tourists make their way to Nashville in search of antiquated Southern treasures. They will remind you that antiquing is a very serious sport. They'll also remind you that you should have bought that mid-century modern chair for a reasonable $75.
