Welcome to “Music City” – an apt name for Nashville, the capital of the great state of Tennessee and the heart America’s country music scene.
You’ll hear plenty of honky-tonk on Broadway and classic country gold at the world-famous Grand Old Opry. There is an amazing culinary scene here, not to mention fantastic bourbon tasting rooms and craft breweries. Nashville’s museums and shopping areas ensure you’ll always have a destination in town.
Gaining in popularity during recent years, Nashville has seen its population grow to about 700,000, with its greater metro area inching up towards the 2 million mark. Check out the many historic and forward-looking neighborhoods. Start with Downtown (where the Broadway music scene lies), then move on to the Gulch, Germantown, East Nashville (home to the local NFL franchise) and Belle Meade. If you’re looking for outdoor fun, the Cumberland River meanders through Cumberland Park, while Centennial Park boasts massive green spaces.
