I have liced in Nashville for 10 years and I have never seen the big thrill and appeal of the city to others. It is boring, dirty and old. There are a few cool things but I think people are over excited!
I like going up on weekends to Tariboosh or Bobo's Hookah Bars. Not to mention for Preds. Games and Occasionally a good concert or show. But sometimes It's nice to just go to see Broadway and see a bar band play. Even seeing street musicians. I love listening to the old men who play the fiddles.
I've been to Nashville several times and love it. If you are a country music fan, its the place to be. Be sure to take a ride on the General Jackson up the Cumberland River - take the dinner cruise. Of course the Opry and the Ryman..so much so see and lots of wonderful restaurants.
