Nashville is a small town big city. Chances are you will know everyone (at least through someone/common connections). We have amazing food, awesome live music almost everywhere, and great universities. We have great hockey and football teams (pro) and amazing college basketball and baseball. We do not have a mass transit system in place yet but traffic conditions are improving. We are experiencing a job and population boom (not to mention super low/nonexistent income tax)so new buildings are popping up everywhere, it isn’t very difficult to get hired right out of college. East Nashville is home to the hipsters, historic homes, and good food. Around west end/21st avenue/Hillsboro village is college town. The gulch is super fun for bar hopping. There are some fun family activities and lakes on the east side of Nashville out in the suburbs. There is always something new to do in here. Our police force is fantastic and our crime rate is very low. Once you visit most don't want to leave!

Nashville is a wonderful city for entrepreneurs, dreamers, and seekers alike. It offers such a wide variety of community, culture, and opportunity. It is an especially unique city that fosters creative growth and allows artists to pursue and establish their dreams. Not only is it an excellent place to be a young professional, it also caters towards families and retired populations.

If there is one thing I would improve about this city, it would be for there to be an increased amount of minorities moving in and feeling welcomed and able to thrive here!
Nashville is a beautiful city, with many things to do. I love that this multicultural gem can offer everything that you could ever want or need. With its delicious food, great music, and good family fun, Nashville is far from ordinary. Unfortunately, traveling to Nashville can be a struggle. With all of it's tourist and locals rooming the city, can leave one sitting in traffic for what seems like an eternity, not to mention the potholed filled roads! However, if potholes, traffic, and an endless search for parking doesn't is not problem, Nashville is your place for a eventful time.
