When you drive into our beautiful city in the early morning hours, you can see the sun gleaming off the distinctive skyline. At this time of morning when people just begin to stir, one might wonder what are these people all about. What are our strengths and weaknesses, where do we play, how strong is our love for our fellow man? Well, wonder no more. It is no secret that we are a people of close bonds, competitiveness and being on the move. We do music, we do theatre, we do night life, we do activity, we do charity, and we do Sunday School.
“Music City” got its name for a reason, there is music everywhere from Lower Broadway to Demonbreun. And of course, there’s Music Row, the street that made Nashville famous. Music Row might not have any live music venues, but the studios and record companies produce a major portion of the world’s country music.
Nashville also has other styles of art that are often combined with music and dance, from opera to community theatre. Music and theatre have had a close relationship for centuries, and our community still carries that torch. Sometimes these productions use humor, others use action or tragedy. Whatever the type of performance, Nashville locals love their theatre.
Nashville’s nightlife is dominated by live music. Performance venues across the city showcase local bands and sometimes rising stars. Locals love their nightlife scene, and we know how to cut loose and let our hair down. From 2nd Avenue to Printers Alley, these are just a couple of the places locals come to play. If you’re more into family-oriented nightlife, Music Valley Drive might be for you. Whatever the case, Nashville loves to get out and have fun. Nashville residents also can enjoy some of the most unique museums, from the popular Frist to the Parthenon. We also have the Adventure Science Center with the Sudekum Planetarium and the Dyer Observatory, which are great ways to spend a Saturday afternoon. Grab the kids and have a great day of fun in Nashville!
Faith in Action
I’ve heard it said that Nashville is the “buckle of the Bible belt,” and you can pretty much find a church on every corner. So, there should be no surprise that Nashville residents are very spiritual. A lot of times when you’re out at local restaurants, you can see folks or families bow their heads to pray. This is at the root of why so many local residents participate in charities and fundraisers. Doing this selfless work in our city makes it even stronger when locals get involved by giving back to charities, and Nashville residents are not afraid to get involved.
What We Do
Nashville has also built greenways all over the city, and local residents are very active—making our city one of the most active in the country. When people’s minds, spirits and bodies portray great health, it is usually from a state of complete physical, mental and social well being. The activities we participate in build closer families, better neighbors, and a strength in our community. Nashville’s lifestyle is more than just a social status. It reflects our spirituality and promotes our economic strength. Nashville is America’s small town city that reflects good vibes. This is what we do.
