This gateway to the South has hit its stride, and 2017 looks to be a banner year. The iconic Ryman Auditorium celebrates its 125th anniversary with a full calendar of fêtes, while the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum celebrates 50 years and the Bluebird Cafe turns 35. The city is brimming with new and upcoming eateries: Maneet Chauhan's The Mockingbird, John Besh's Marsh House, and Henrietta Red from Per Sea-trained chef Julia Sullivan. And there are plenty of places to stay, thanks to a hotel boom - the Westin and Thompson recently debuted, with a Kimpton and 21c slated to open this year.
As you can see, Nashville is the place to be! And with all the free fun you can have in Music City, including free music all day every day, Nashville is the best all around. Start planning your trip now.
