Head to the Music City, home of country music and beautiful lush landscapes for you to explore. Nashville offers a fantastic atmosphere for live music and you will find musicians strumming their tunes or singing the blues in one of the many ‘Honky Tonks’ in the city.
The famous Country Music Hall of Fame and Music City Center is where all the greats come to perform at the Bridgestone Arena all year through. Broadway Street is the main hub for bars and restaurants, so you’ll find all sorts of music here - rock, pop, country and more. The iconic Ryman Auditorium stages the Grand Ole Opry where many singing legends have been discovered on this stage and self-acclaimed as the show that made country music famous.
In the Greater Nashville area, you will find over 100 parks and plenty of open space to explore. Head to downtown Nashville and see a full-scale replica of the Greek Parthenon including all statues and columns! Inside there’s also an Athena statue standing over 42 feet tall and is noted as the tallest indoor statue in America.
The food here is as expansive as the music. Creativity has spilled from the stages to the kitchens and has brought some great cuisine to the city and it’s the classic Southern food that has put Nashville on the map. Make sure to try the popular meat and threes while you’re there, which is where you pick one meat and three vegetable dishes!
Nashville is a great destination of course for music lovers but makes a great holiday choice for families, couples and solo travellers with lots of outdoor activities to enjoy, lush parklands to explore and a great music atmosphere across the city.
