About Nashville

Nashville is the capital of the Southern State of Tennessee and is affectionately known as “Music City”. Located on the Cumberland River, from its very beginning Nashville grew from a foundation built on music. From historic venues such at Ryman Auditorium and the Grand Ole Opry to institutions such as the Bluebird CafĂ© music has been the common thread connecting the life and soul of the city and its people. 

Creativity is the heart and soul of Music City and there’s never a shortage of inspiring things to do. From new sounds that fill our speakers to old songs that fill our hearts, Nashville has the musical attractions to honor both past and present. Even Nashville's creative community spills out into an art scene filled with art galleries, theaters, and performance stages. Step back into time to learn about Nashville’s history or explore a Nashville museum to discover artifacts, memorabilia, and more. From music, culture, and the arts to food, sports, and shopping, there is an “only in Nashville” experience waiting for you.
