Nashville is a fun, up-and-coming city. As a transplant from the North, I am a common commodity. Everyday, Nashville is becoming more and more cosmopolitan. I work with the LEP population in Nashville, and our business has grown exponentially in the past few years. As the city grows, it adds more and more job opportunities. Although Nashville is the epicenter for country music, it is much more than that. Healthcare is Nashville's other booming industry, which saved it from the financial crisis in 2008 and kept Nashville's housing market strong. With the increase in jobs and safe housing, Nashville gives you a bang for your buck with a very favorable cost of living ratio. I couldn't finish a review on Nashville without talking about its nightlife. Nashville has become a nightlife destination. Bachelor/bachelorette parties have been spilling from Broadway into hotspots locals enjoy. Going to the newest bar is every Nashvillians favorite weekend activity. Holler and Swaller!

I visited Nashville to attend the international convention for Phi Theta Kappa and was exposed to a lively, beautiful city. Our convention was held at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center. Every morning as a walked in a passed the overhang, I was reintroduced to the sound of flowing water, the small of thousands of flowers, and the sight of smiling faces both familiar and new. After the sessions, we explored the town and the main strip was lite up like New York City; bars, restaurants, karaoke lounges, and more bars! Country music filled the air and joy filled my body. What an incredible first experience in one of America's greatest cities!
Living in Nashville has been a positive experience. I've been exposed to a lot of new things, including hot chicken, music in every bar, a job in Urban Planning that has helped me understand the growth of the city, and the concept of a "small city". With the restaurants, music scene, and surrounding nature, there is something for everyone! I highly recommend a waterfall tour outside the city followed by a whiskey tasting and bluegrass music in Nashville.
