When you think of the south, you can’t help but think of Nashville, Tennessee. The “Music City” is bustling with unique culture, cuisine and history. Not only is Nashville the country music capital, but it is also the host city for Carestream Dental’s 2019 Global Oral Health Summit. From distillery visits to discovering Nashville’s famous hot chicken, there are many exciting things to do, but here are five reasons Nashville is the place to be:
Beautiful Location and Hotel
Nashville is best known for having music-centric attractions and activities, but its beautiful scenery is just as captivating. The fascinating architecture and vibrant cityscape all create a landscape unique to Nashville. The State Capitol Building, Cumberland River, and Centennial Park are just a few destinations that provide great photo ops and breathtaking views. You can visit all of these locations—day or night— conveniently on the Old Town Trolley Tour.
In addition to the beautiful parks and rivers, the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center is Nashville’s premier, luxurious hotel. Not only can guests indulge in four acres of indoor and outdoor water attractions, but they can easily catch a show at the world-renown Grand Ole Opry and Ryman Auditorium.

Endless Live Music
There’s a reason why Nashville is called the Music City. There are music venues for pop, country, rock, hip-hop, or just about any genre you can think of located all around town; however, country music and “honky-tonks” are what define Nashville’s culture. If you’re wondering what a honky-tonk is, at its core, it’s a country bar with live music. Country music and honky-tonks are an essential part of Nashville. You’ll be sure to find many of them around.
One of the best places to find the top honky-tonks and juke joints would be in Nashville’s Broadway District. Lower Broadway includes an extensive stretch of bars, clubs, and restaurants that all serve as the epicenter of Nashville. No matter the time of day, you can find live music venues with the best atmosphere all along the strip.
Aside from the live music opportunities, Nashville offers other performing arts entertainment opportunities including the Nashville Symphony and Nashville Ballet. The Third Coast Comedy Club is home to many sketches, improv, and stand up-shows throughout the week, and the non-profit film center, Belcourt Theatre, is known for showing independent, documentary and classic films. Another great, innovative place to visit is OZ Arts Nashville. This relatively new destination is an innovative, contemporary performing arts center that offers diverse visual arts events for audiences of all ages.
