Hello lovely reader. Thanks for stopping by.
If you’re interested in traveling to Nashville, and looking for fun things to do, this post is for you. Nashville *aka Music City* *aka NashVegas* is one of the fastest growing cities in the US, with 80-100 people moving there each day. (Not to mention one of the top destinations for Bachelor and Bachelorette parties…) I love the city for its Southern charm, friendly people, community of creatives and artists, unique neighborhoods, and a kind of nightlife many other cities do not offer. As far as the music scene, Nashville was primarily known for country music for many years, however the scene has shifted to other genres such as alternative and indie music, among others.
I honestly wish I had the ability to travel more. I love the sense of shifted perspective travel creates, meeting new people, trying new foods, and observing fashion trends in different cities. Travel creates an awareness of the world, including insights on culture, other beliefs, and ways of life.
I’ve noticed that the more I travel, I’ve developed an interesting dichotomy of insights. Particularly during my travels within different regions of the US, I’ve noticed that there is a particular “type” of person you meet in a certain city. While there are so many different kinds of people in Nashville, it is an eclectic city with many creatives (and dare I say it- hipsters come with the territory… )
