Historic, colorful, artistic Nashville is filled with great scenic ops. Catch the lovely skyline reflected on the Cumberland River at twilight from super-view vantage points. Capture architectural details of iconic historic buildings. Take in the splendid color of scenic landscapes. Urban cityscapes are scenic when they are in the form of colorful neon signs and, most unique of all, Nashville’s newest creative signature – murals painted on public spaces.
Christmas in Nashville is a magical journey through nostalgia, make-believe, and joy. With dazzling lights, holiday happenings, musical performances, and historic homes decked out in holiday finery, Music City goes all out to celebrate the season.
There are two sides of Nashville and two ways to experience its history. One is the country music roots of “Music City,” the epicenter of the uniquely American cultural phenomenon. The other is through the places highlighting the rich heritage of the city, the state, and its people.
Mention Nashville to anyone and one thing comes to mind: country music. Nashville is not only the epicenter of this uniquely American cultural phenomenon, but it’s where music across genres is written, recorded and performed. Live music, heard everywhere, year-round, gives the city great energy. It attracts creative, interesting people and has a young, trendy vibe. Nashville has another side too – a rich cultural and historical heritage, lovely countryside, historic antebellum homes, a visual arts scene and, true to Tennessee’s folkloric moonshine history, fine whiskey distilleries, craft beer breweries and wineries. You can have a great time hitting the highlights in two days with this itinerary.
