The sounds of Nashville are calling. With more than 13.5 million visitors in 2016, they’ll tell you exactly why Nashville is Music City.

If you’re a music lover, get ready to experience the best in music history. Nashville is home to the Ryman Auditorium where some of best singers in country music have graced the stage, from Minnie Pearl to the legendary Johnny Cash. Today, it plays host to a new generation of aspiring and established music makers.

Of course, no visit is complete without a stop at the Grand Ole Opry, the world’s longest-running radio show and stage show. See where legends like Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette have performed and where current chart toppers like Lady Antebellum and Carrie Underwood continue to pack the house. Don’t forget about the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum where you can learn how the city took centre stage as the place where music is created and played.

There are also a few surprises to be found in Nashville. Sports fans can watch the NHL’s Nashville Predators take to the ice in the fall, winter and spring or see the NFL’s Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium, a 69,000-seat venue. If you’re looking for fun and fitness for yourself, check out Nashville Shores, perfect for the whole family. Hailed as the city’s number one family attraction, the waterpark offers a 25,000-square-foot wave pool that generates five different wave patterns – some with waves as high as four feet. The park also features slides, beachside swimming and a great children’s play area. There’s also a 30,000-square-foot lounge and food deck, perfect for making your visit a full-day adventure.

A great way to experience the heart of Nashville is through the Music City Circuit, with blue, green and purple buses transporting guests through downtown’s best retail and restaurant areas. Best of all, it’s free of charge and operates each day until 11 p.m.

Nashville is also home to the best in Southern hospitality, with its warm and friendly people. You can even taste it in the abundance of great local cuisine – and some of the best fried chicken you’ll find in the world. Dig in!
