Art. The Village of Nashville is full of art shops and galleries. Find even more studios and galleries tucked away in the hills of the county—many of which are open as long as the artists are home so give them a call before you head there! Be sure to visit when the Back Roads of Brown County Spring and Fall Driving Tours are going on. Stop by the Visitors Center and grab an Arts Village Brown County map and it will guide your way through the Village, pointing out wineries, breweries, public art, historic sites, entertainment venues, studios and galleries all within walking distance.
