WELCOME TO MUSIC CITY USA…NASHVILLE!

Now more than ever, Nashville is on the radar. Named one of the “Best Places to Travel” by Travel + Leisure, one of the “Top Places to Go” by The New York Times and one of the “Destinations You Don’t Want to Miss Out On” by Conde Nast Traveler, Nashville offers everything from an electrifying multigenre music scene, award-winning cuisine, historic homes, world-class art, a myriad of attractions, unique shopping, college and professional sports, and more.

Of course, music remains Nashville’s calling card to the world and is the very heart of the city. Long recognized as the world’s capital of country music, Music City’s sounds also include pop, rock, gospel, Americana, bluegrass, jazz, classical, contemporary Christian, blues and soul. With more than 120 live music venues across the city, there is something for everyone. You’ll catch pickers and songwriters all over town, in places like bluegrass venue Station Inn, the rock venue Exit/In, the honky-tonks on Broadway, the song-centered Bluebird Cafe or the legendary Ryman Auditorium.

While Nashville has long been known for its expansive music scene, the talent and creativity of its culinary scene has recently put Nashville on the map. Dubbed “The Coolest, Tastiest City in the South” by Bon Appetit, Nashville’s creative spirit has infiltrated into its kitchens, turning them into the chef’s studios. From Southern fare to haute cuisine to quite literally everything in between, Nashville satisfies all palates. To really get a feel for Nashville’s local side, check out some of Nashville’s unique neighborhoods full of Music City charm. Areas like 12South, Hillsboro Village, East Nashville, and the Gulch offer a good mix of shopping, dining, nightlife and music.

With its charming mix of musical, historical and cultural flavors, Nashville is truly a city for all seasons and styles. Learn more at www.visitmusiccity.com.
