Travel to Nashville and see this iconic city’s gorgeous classical architecture. Its culinary scene—which extends far beyond fried food—is making waves not just on a national level, but globally, too. And Nashville boasts some of the best—if not the best—music you will find anywhere. You will need to shine up your boots, loosen your pants, and get ready to eat, drink, and listen to your way through this rapidly growing cultural metropolis in the heart of the South.
The real strength of Nashville is “the character, the personality” of the city. The Cumberland River slicing right through its epicenter provides ample opportunity for water outings—not to mention stunning skyline views, best glimpsed from the pedestrian bridge—as does the nearby Percy Priest Lake. Downtown’s famed “Honky Tonky Row,” which runs down Broadway to the riverfront with additional live music venues spilling over onto Second Avenue, is where the bulk of the tourists congregate, but there’s much more to Nashville than the bright lights of Lower Broad. Nashville is proud of this heritage and its nickname “Music City”.
