Nashville has always been legendary, but in recent years Music City has exploded in popularity. An influx of new residents and industries has boosted the area’s tourist attractions, so there’s a lot more to see than the Country Music Hall of Fame (though that’s still a can’t miss). But traversing the city to take in all of the sights can be overwhelming.

Enter Sightseeing Pass. This unique program sells two options for tourists to make the most out of their trip, and save money on cool spots. Plus, there’s a hop-on, hop-off bus to get you to and from. Here’s how it works.

What’s Included On The Nashville Sightseeing Pass

Sightseeing Pass is the only program in the area to offer two unique passes. Choose the one that best suits your travel style and budget, and you’ll be on your way to rocking out in the Music City. Read on.

Flex Pass

The flex pass allows you to select the number of attractions you’d like to visit. Purchase a pass for three, four, five, six, or seven attractions, then take up to 30 days to explore and use your visits. You can select as you go from more than 17 top spots. Overall, expect to save big bucks—47% or more.

Day Pass

For the active sightseer, the Day Pass offers unlimited attractions. With this, you pay for the number of days you’d like to use the pass. Purchase a package for one, two, three, or four consecutive calendar days. It is activated at the first attraction and expires at midnight on the last valid day.

Top 5 Nashville Attractions

Sightseeing Pass includes access to more than 17 of the city’s most popular attractions, and the list is ever-expanding. Here are the top five favored by Sightseeing Pass visitors:

  1. African American History Tour
  2. Escape Game Nashville, Downtown
  3. Gray Line Music City Hop-on, Hop-off Bus Tour
  4. Lotz House Cellar Tour
  5. Monster Truck Tour of Nashville (two hours)

Make The Most Of Your Nashville Sightseeing Pass

The best way to get the most bang for your buck is to purchase the pass option that best suits your trip and travel style. If you’ve already been to Nashville or are only in town for a short time, the Flex pass is a great way to save money on a few sights, and enjoy the discounted bus tour (you can use it as one of your options).

For those who have never been and like to see a lot of sights, the Day Pass is a great way to enjoy a large discount. The more things you see, the more you’ll save. But, you have to be an active traveler to get your money’s worth.

With both options, you’ll save the most on big-ticket attractions, like the African American History Tour or a Segue or Monster Truck Tour. More affordable options, like the Lotz House Tour ($10) may cost more on the pass than to purchase your own ticket, unless you have the unlimited option.

Nashville Sightseeing Pass Pros And Cons

If you love sightseeing, both passes are a great option. There are about 17 options to choose from, with leading destinations like the Country Music Hall of Fame and Madame Tussauds Nashville included. With two different pass styles, you can really customize your experience.

There isn’t much in the way of competing sightseeing companies in Nashville. Nashville Music City has a Total Access pass. For $99, you get admission to four attractions of your choice plus two “bonus” tickets for the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame and The Parthenon. If you want to see the former to destinations, they aren’t available on Sightseeing Pass. But if you don’t care to see them, you are locked into those two options with Total Access.

Instead, you could get the five-attraction Flex Pass for the same price, and you’d have more options to choose your destinations. Or, do a one-day Pass for $89 and see as much as you’d like! There are options up to four days, and flex up to seven attractions. So as the name suggest, Sightseeing Pass offers more flexibility.

Sightseeing Pass Insider Tips

The great thing about Sightseeing Pass is you can plan as you go. That said, you’ll want to book high-popularity tours ahead of time. If you want to see the African American History Tour, go on a Segway Tour, or do the Lotz House Cellar Tour, be sure to book in advance to secure your spot. Plus, these can include “Fast Track,” so you can skip the line completely.
