Nashville: Music City

I’ve been to Nashville several times, each time is better than the last. Much like Austin, Nashville is constantly growing, changing and adding things to the ever so long list of things to do. However, one of the things I love most about Nashville is its consistent spirit- even with their constant adjustments to today’s city and tourism expectations, they never lose sight of whats important: the music and the traditions. It’s truly admirable and charming.Nashville has several neighborhoods, for planning purposes I organized our activities by neighborhood so we weren’t constantly wasting time hopping from one to the other and wasting money on ubers to get back and forth.
