Travel & Leisure Magazine recently named Nashville “America’s Friendliest City” – Come see why! Attractions cover the spectrum from the Civil War to Faith Hill’s dress to a priceless Picasso and Warhol; there’s something for everyone in Music City. Take a tour of an Antebellum home rich in history, or take in a comedy while enjoying dinner with your date. You like the nightlife? You’ve come to the right place, because the “stars” come out at night. Hear blues, rock, country, gospel, jazz, or contemporary Christian. Only in Nashville can you step into a honky tonk on Broadway, look around and see famous faces. Throughout the city, small dives hidden away from the limelight showcase Nashville’s true legends – songwriters.

Every night the music scene in Nashville is vibrant and contagious. Fans rush to get a seat in the clubs while the latecomers crowd the walls and dance floors. By late evening, the clubs are alive and rocking, and there are still many hours left before the clubs close. Let Chopin and Mozart carry you away as you watch the Nashville Ballet or listen to the Grammy-nominated Nashville Symphony. Take in a performance of the Nashville Opera or enjoy an off-Broadway performance at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Beyond the great sounds is shopping. Posh boutiques, guitar stores filled with instruments, chic clothing and fashionable shops – Nashville’s shopping scene covers the gamut in style and appeal.

When hunger strikes, Nashville’s plate has many unique options to tempt your taste buds. Known for “meat and threes” and zesty barbecue, Nashville also specializes in New Southern and Southern fusion, a blend of down-home cooking and uptown dining. Are you asking yourself what makes Nashville family-friendly? Then think no further. Explore the Adventure Science Center, Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art, Fort Nashborough, Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, or Valley Amusement Park. For the sports fan, Nashville boasts three professional sports teams as well as Busch and Indy series car racing. Nashville is surrounded by lush, rolling hills and sparkling blue lakes. Walk 18 holes on Nashville’s five resort courses or eight public golf courses. Ride amusement park rides or slide down Tennessee’s largest waterslides. Rent a jet ski for the day or just cruise upon the world’s largest showboat. When it’s time to unwind, enjoy a day of pampering and relaxation at one of many great day spas.
