The capital city of Tennessee encompasses diverse lifestyles and moods across its neighbourhoods – from shopping at upscale boutiques in the affluent Green Hills to walking around historic buildings, art galleries and honky-tonk bars in Downtown Nashville. The Gulch appeals to younger crowds with its artsy vibe and cultural mishmash, while Germantown thrives on its European roots and is home to the iconic Tennessee State Museum.
Music makes its way into every nook and cranny of Nashville, especially at the Grand Ole Opry that sets its stage for weekly country music performances. Some of the other notable venues that you can enjoy a show at include the Tennessee Performing Arts Center and the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. With an array of film, book and art festivals spread out year-round, the city finds a way to keep locals and travellers entertained.
On your trip to Nashville, you can visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, journeying through the glorious history of country music with the help of artefacts, recordings, photographs and vintage videos. Set out on a culinary tour to try classic American dishes or cheer for your favourite team while watching a hockey match at the Bridgestone Arena.
