Perks of Living in Nashville, AKA "Music City"!

  • Unbeatable Music Scene: The city was built on its love for songwriting and country music, and it's home to some of the greatest venues in the country with plenty of other genres available.
  • Outdoor Recreation: There are over 10,000 acres of easily accessible public land for outdoor activities such as kayaking, hiking, and camping.
  • Nightlife: Nashville's nightlife is up to par with New Orleans, so whether you're looking to see some live music at a dive bar or prefer a more intimate lounge where you can enjoy a craft cocktail, there's something for everyone. We're talking sports bars, speakeasies, clubs, pubs, breweries, rooftop lounges, and taverns.
  • Vibrant Restaurant Scene: If you love spicy food, barbecue, and southern fare, you'll be in heaven!
  • Great Coffee Shops: Seattle might have the reputation as being the best coffee city in the United States, but Nashville gives them a run for their money. With tons of locally owned cafes and coffeehouses, you won't have to look far to find a good cup of Joe.
  • Multiple Pro Sports Teams: The Nashville Predators made it to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2017, while the Tennessee Titans take the field each season at Nissan Stadium, which is just across the river near the downtown area. MLS just appeared in the city as well, with Nashville Soccer Club celebrating their first season in the top-tier league starting in 2020.
