Music is the universal language, and it all comes together in Nashville where the music is written, recorded and performed. Home to more than 180 live music venues, from the historic Ryman Auditorium and the Grand Ole Opry to independent venues such as The Bluebird Cafe and EXIT/IN, there is a unique experience for everyone in Music City.

With more music museums than anywhere in the world, visitors can experience the rich history of music from any genre at the National Museum of African American Music or the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Just west of downtown, visitors can hear the legendary sound recordings of Dolly Parton and Elvis Presley at Historic RCA Studio B, located on Music Row.

In recent years, there has been an evolution in both the quality of hotel rooms and quantity of rooms—from boutique to 5-star properties such as the Four Seasons Nashville, the Conrad Nashville and the 1 Hotel—which has broadened Nashville’s appeal and the visitor’s experience.

The culinary scene is also hotter than ever with award-winning chefs putting their mark in Music City and making Nashville a premier culinary destination with over 300 new restaurants opening in the past three years. Nashville has also become a hot bed for breweries and distilleries while southern staples such as Hot Chicken, meat-and-three, and Tennessee pork barbeque remain deeply embedded in the city’s food culture.

Nashville is a year-round sports destination with four professional teams. In the fall, the excitement starts on Sundays with the city’s NFL team the Tennessee Titans who are set to move into a new stadium in 2027 on the East Bank. The action continues downtown at Bridgestone Arena, home to the NHL’s Nashville Predators. Nashville is also home to the largest soccer specific stadium—GEODIS Park—in the United States and Canada, and claims the Nashville Sounds, a MiLB team that recorded the highest total attendance of any team in the MiLB this past year.

Growing at a sensational pace, there’s something new to experience at every corner in Music City.
