Ranked by Travel & Leisure as the Friendliest City in America, Music City keeps rolling in the awards, including 5 consecutive years as a top destination in the world. Known as the birthplace of country music, Nashville is more than honky-tonks and line dancing. From the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Ryman Auditorium, and Historic RCA Studio B where Elvis and countless other music legends recorded their hits, there’s a piece of music history around every corner. Beyond the neon lights of Broadway street downtown, each Nashville neighborhood offers a unique experience. Listen to songwriter rounds in an intimate setting at the Bluebird Café in Green Hills, grab a donut at Five Daughters Bakery and shop specialty boutiques in 12 South, hit up happy hour in one of the city’s newly renovated neighborhoods The Gulch, and end your day with a live show and a late night eat in East Nashville. Grab your boots and plan your escape today.
