Nashville, TN
General Information

A Walk in our Past
- Wear a pair of walking shoes and take a stroll into Nashville's past. Step back in time as you explore the many historical sites the city offers like Belle Meade Plantation and Fort Nashborough. Slated to open in 2006, Fort Negley tells the surreal and fascinating story of freed African-Americans constructing a union fort on a hill overlooking downtown Nashville. The Bicentennial Mall is a stopping point for history buffs. The 19-acre park is designed to complement the Tennessee Capitol Building and give visitors a taste of Tennessee's history and natural wonder, as well as serve as a lasting monument to Tennessee's Bicentennial celebration.

Music Festivals in Music City - What would Nashville be without its deep musical roots? We celebrate those roots at the more than 10 music festivals held annually in Music City. Tin Pan South, named for the famous Tin Pan Alley in New York City, celebrates songwriters and their craft. The CMA Music Festival, previously known as Fan Fair, draws more than 100,000 music fans worldwide to Music City. River Stages rocks Riverfront Park as this 3-day music festival combines artists and genres from many musical backgrounds. Music City Jazz & Heritage Festival combines local and national jazz and blues talent for one spectacular Labor Day weekend.

Music and More - Donning the name, Music City USA, Nashville has become one of the leading music recording cities in the country. Take a drive down Music Row and see where deals are made in the recording industry. Stop at RCA Studio B, where renowned musicians like Elvis Presley and the Everly Brothers made music history. Stop by the famous Bluebird café where songwriters and musicians perform nightly. Artists like Faith Hill and Garth Brooks got their starts at the Bluebird café.

The Soul of the City - Nashville's African American Heritage- Nashville boasts a rich multicultural presence with African Americans now representing more than 27 percent of the Davidson County population. The history and heritage of the African-American in Nashville is represented at many art galleries, plantation homes as well as African-American influences chronicled through food, exhibits, music and culture. On the horizon for 2006, a new African American Heritage Museum rounds out the rich history of the city.

Music is Only Half the Fun - Nashville boasts many cultural attractions such as the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. The Frist Center for the Visual Arts is a nonprofit art-exhibition center, with approximately 24,000 square feet of gallery space, dedicated to presenting the finest visual art from local, state and regional artists, as well as major U.S. and international exhibitions. The Nashville Opera, as well as the Nashville Symphony perform year round and a new world-class concert hall, slated to open in 2006, will feature many musical performances. Nashville's many wonderful restaurants specialize in Southern cuisine with a flare. The city also attracts sports lovers for Titans' football, golf and Predators' hockey.

The Athens of the South - The moniker 'Athens of the South' has helped foster Nashville's reputations as a cultural and learning destination. Over 150 years ago, the first of many colleges in the area raised the bar on education in the south. Today there are more than 16 colleges and universities in the area. Because of the city's dedication to learning, many cultural institutions have made Nashville their home.

Breaking a Record in Music City - If you have ever dreamed of making a record, imagine how it feels breaking a record. When it comes to successful conventions, it's not who you know-it's where you go. For years, meetings held in Nashville have been setting new attendance records, many of which are repeat conventions.

Uniquely Nashville - Nashville offers many unique venues that can call Music City home. They are unique to our city, and they bring visitors worldwide to sneak a peak, but more importantly, they make the perfect backdrop for a function outside your host hotel. Step into the Ryman Auditorium, the Mother Church of Country Music, and have breakfast on the stage where Minnie Pearl once performed. Then step into the Parthenon and dine at the feet of Athena, the Western Hemisphere's largest indoor statue and the world's only full-scale replica of the Athenian Greek temple.

The Family Side of Nashville - Nashville offers something for the whole family. Nashville was recently voted one of the friendliest cities in the country, which makes families feel right at home. The Adventure Science Museum, the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, Art Quest at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts and the Valley Fair Amusement Park are just a few places with family friendly activities.
