Nashville

Welcome to Nashville

Music City is an electric community brimming with creativity and a white-hot real estate market

 

Vibrant, bustling Nashville has a little bit of everything — from honkytonks on Broadway to five-star eateries to award-winning universities and healthcare. Nashville’s charm makes it one of the top-rated places to live year after year and is continuously receiving high ranks in various categories including Fastest-Growing Places and Best Places to Retire. 

 

Trendy and walkable, many of the neighborhoods are dotted with cafes and shops and the atmosphere is emblematic and consistent with the Nashville way of life —one that offers a relaxed vibe coupled with top-tier amenities. The city’s culture is propelled by its creative energy, and it’s not surprising to find a connection to music and the arts at nearly every turn.

 

 

What to Love

  • The lights, music, and good eats on Broadway
  • Relaxing on the lawn at Centennial Park
  • World-class dining and shopping with down-south hospitality


Local Lifestyle

Also known for its innovation, the metro area is characterized by a blossoming jobs market and a booming entertainment scene creating fertile ground for innovation and entrepreneurial endeavors. In recent years, Nashville has also become an incubator for gastronomical adventures, and you’ll find global inspiration on the menu — as well as must-try Nashville hot chicken. 

 

 

Dining, Shopping & Entertainment

Whatever you’re looking for, Nashville has it. Browse for your next favorite read at the Ann Patchett-owned Parnassus Books in Green Hills or grab a coffee from Frothy Monkey before vintage shopping in 12 South. End your night on Broadway at iconic bars like Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge or Nudie’s Honky Tonk, or enjoy an upscale dinner on the patio at Sixty Vines, overlooking the strip. 

 

 

Things to Do

A playground for its residents, there’s never a shortage of fun, outdoor activities in Nashville. Sports fans take heed of the number of Nashville’s sports teams including Tennessee Titans, Nashville Predators, Nashville Sounds, and Nashville SC. If you're not a sports enthusiast, consider all the great activities for families including visits to Centennial Park, the Adventure Science Center, and the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere among many more. Enjoy a live music performance at the historic Ryman Auditorium or participate in living history by attending a show at the Grand Ole Opry
