Nashville, or “Music City”, is one of the most popular tourist cities in the south, and for good reason! The city is built around live music, and as the “home of country music,” you are likely to catch more than one show on your trip as music is everywhere. The popular downtown strip, known as “Music Row”, is home to lots of touristy attractions, bars, nightclubs, live music venues, and shopping. The more major live music venues in town are the Ryman Auditorium and the Grand Ol Opry who both have a full calendar of events to choose from. Nashville is a party all year long, and you won’t have any trouble finding a good time in this friendly southern city.
Nashville is more than just a music city though. The Nashville food scene is quickly evolving the town into a must-visit foodie destination. For traditional Nashville food, go to Hattie B’s or Princes to sample the famous hot chicken, just beware of the “local hot” if you’re not a fan of spicy food! The city also is home to many cafes, restaurants offering southern comfort food classics, barbeque, sweet treats, sweet iced tea and many other delicious options for any palate.
Nashville also has a great selection of historical landmarks, museums, art galleries and festivals throughout the year to keep you occupied during your stay. Just a quick drive outside the city puts you in the beautiful Tennessee countryside. Hills, forests, streams lakes and more offer lots of opportunities to explore.
