Nashville is Music City

Nashville is a city bursting with creativity at every turn. Visitors are encouraged to explore the worldclass exhibits and galleries, the fantastic museums, the music, the food scene, and everything in between. If you’re looking for a night of art, music, dancing, and entertainment, you’ll find no shortage of options. Nashville has something for everyone.

Nashville’s art scene is vibrant and growing by the day. The Tennessee Arts Commission hosts public art events throughout the year and has sponsored many, such as a series of temporary installations at Centennial Park in 2017 that celebrated the city’s bicentennial. The Tennessee State Museum has rotating exhibits of regional and national art, as well as permanent installations of works by Tennessee artists. The Frist Center for Visual Arts has rotating exhibits of modern art from around the world. And don’t miss one of Nashville’s newest additions to the arts scene: The Museum of African American Art (MOAA).

Nashville might be best known for its music scene but it also boasts a vibrant food scene that ranges from Southern comfort food to eclectic international cuisine. There is no shortage of local restaurants to be found in Nashville; here are just a few that are worth checking out: Husk Nashville for Southern cuisine with an upscale twist; The Catbird Seat for upscale Southern cuisine; Lockeland Table for seasonal American fare; Biscuit Love for delicious Southern fare; and Brother Juniper’s Brewery and Grill for a great brewpub experience.
