Nashville is the perfect destination for those with an appetite for exploration. When you touch down at Nashville International Airport, get ready to be immersed in a vibrant cultural hub, a bustling college town, and the home of the Nashville sound.
While Nashville has recently entered the spotlight as a top destination for bachelor and bachelorette parties, many visiting honky-tonkers may hearken back to the days of the Grand Ole Opry. Whether you’re seeking modern Nashville or classic Nashville, it’s all on the menu during your visit. Speaking of menus, make sure to enjoy some classic Nashville cooking while you’re in town. Nashville hot chicken is a mouthwatering favorite, but visitors with big hunger might prefer a meat and three. A Southern cooking staple, the meat and three is a dish comprised of one protein selection (often fried chicken or a barbequed cut of beef or pork) and three classic sides. While this style of serving is popular in several locales, its roots can be traced to Nashville.
Several styles of country music and many classic and modern country music acts can also trace their roots to this Tennessee town. From honky-tonk bars to the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, chances to take in a live show abound. Grab a pair of cowboy boots and scoot your way to a performance. Country music isn’t the only sound in Music City, though—the area has an oft-overlooked love of jazz, and the Barbershop Harmony Society keeps their headquarters in town.
