Nashville is forever linked to the countless musical legends who have written, recorded and performed there. The city has captured the attention of the world and earned its Music City credentials. However, Nashville is more than just the sounds of its rich musical tradition; the city will awaken all your senses.

The burgeoning culinary scene in Nashville is gaining notoriety as a new spirit of creativity. Lonely Planet ranked Nashville in the top ten cities around the world on its Best in Travel 2016 collection – the only U.S. city to make the list! TripAdvisor rated it the U.S. city gaining the most popularity with international travelers.

“Nashville, Tennessee, used to be just a city of ten-gallon hats and 
the Grand Ole Opry. Now it’s the most electric spot in the South, thanks to a cast of transplanted designers, architects, chefs, and rock ‘n’ rollers.” - GQ

Travel to Nashville is as convenient as it gets. There are 380 daily arrivals and departures at its international airport and three major interstate highways converge near downtown. With many major cities within a day’s drive, 50 percent of the U.S. population is within 600 miles of the city. It’s hard to beat this place for ease of travel.

Nashville has something for everyone.
