Start out right with breakfast within the hotel at Omni’s own Kitchen Notes
. In addition to a breakfast buffet, diners can enjoy Southern-inspired starters, like a variety of breakfast sandwiches on buttermilk biscuits, pancakes, waffles or egg dishes like the Honky Tonk Omelet or the egg white frittata.
For a comfort food breakfast off-property, head to The Southern, a steak and oyster restaurant by night that serves up breakfast or brunch each morning. Enjoy a variety of specialty dishes, like the T for Texas, which combines smoked brisket with jalapeno cheddar grits and fried eggs, or the Highway, where fried chicken is drizzled in maple syrup and served atop a waffle.
Get oriented with an introduction to the city via horse-drawn carriage. Leaving from Broadway Street in downtown Nashville, various groups host narrated tours that include famous landmarks or casual rides to simply take in the sights.
Another way to gain perspective of the city as a whole is with a relaxing walk across the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge, a truss bridge that crosses the Cumberland River and connects the west to the residential areas to the east and offers views of downtown as you go.
If you prefer to head indoors, the Tennessee State Museum is less than a mile from the hotel, and it offers a glimpse into the city’s past, spanning 15,000 years. Especially interesting is the museum’s display of Civil War artifacts like weapons, uniforms and flags.
