But in addition to being the hometown of country music singers, recording labels and producers, Nashville also boasts a thriving economy including state government, publishing, health care, transportation, banking and multiple universities and colleges. Nashville is a popular tourism destination for guests from across the country and the world. Saturated with music, culture, nightlife, sports, outdoor recreation and history, the city continues to attract thousands of visitors annually.

Known most prominently as "Music City USA," Nashville is one of the best places to visit if you're looking to experience a great nightlife filled with performances both large and small by talented musicians, singers and songwriters. Music venues, coffee shops, and cafes around almost every corner of the city host a variety of musical styles every night of the week, and you never know when you might end up seeing the next big country music star playing his or her heart out at a local open mic night. EscapeWizard.com recommends leaving room in your evening schedule to frequent a few of these famous songwriter venues, including the Blue Bird Cafe, the Commodore Grille, Picks Nashville, and the Listening Room, among many others.

Nashville's reputation as the home of country music is one of its largest tourism draws. When visiting, EscapeWizard.com suggests making a stop at the Grand Ole Opry, the world's longest running live radio show. Then, make your way to the Country Music Hall of Fame, where you can enjoy meandering among historical country music videos, recorded music, other important artifacts and watch one of many live performances and public education programs offered through the museum. Both of these must-see Nashville attractions will bring the magic of Music City to life.

Another great side to Nashville is the sports scene, as fans of all ages will love watching the wide variety of sports games they can attend while in town. The city is home to pro teams includeing the Tennessee Titans (football), the Nashville Predators (hockey); minor league teams including the Nashville Sounds (baseball); and collegiate sports at Vanderbilt, Tennessee State, Belmont and Lipscomb Universities. EscapeWizard.com suggests buying a hot dog, an order of cheese fries and a drink, and heading out to root for a local Nashville team. And, if you feel like working up a sweat yourself, head to one of Nashville's beautiful city parks to play a rousing game of catch. Or, for a more relaxing afternoon, grab a blanket and some great picnic food and enjoy views of the cityscape at sunset.

Before leaving town, EscapeWizard.com highly recommends visiting a few of the important historical venues and monuments throughout the city. Nashville is steeped in Civil War and Southern history. Visit sites from the Battle of Nashville, the Battle of Franklin and the Battle of Stones River to gain a peak into their historical significance during the Civil War. Then take a step back in time by also visiting some of the city's historical antebellum plantation homes.

Overall, Nashville is the perfect vacation destination if you are looking to take in some amazing country music and good old fashioned Southern hospitality. Just click on the above link to book with EscapeWizard.com.
