Tennessee’s capital is located in the north central part of the state, not far from the Kentucky state line. It is a sprawling, green city with its downtown core surrounded by tree-lined neighborhoods.

Some of the city’s biggest attractions, hotels and restaurants overlook the meandering Cumberland River, Broadway and 2nd Avenue serve as the entertainment district, and north of Broadway you’ll find the business district, Capitol Hill and the Tennessee Bicentennial Mall. In Music Row, Midtown and 12 South is Vanderbilt University, boutique shopping and live music venues. East Nashville is a hip gentrified area with stylish vintage boutiques, tasty restaurants and offbeat eateries. In Music Valley you’ll find The Grand Ole Opry is located in Music Valley, while and many touristy options, while in South Nashville, there are several art galleries, a zoo, and options for international cuisine.
