The capital of Tennessee and the Country Music Capital of the World is a regional center of culture and commerce. Founded in 1779, Nashville, like many Southern cities, has experienced periods of economic woes, and prosperity as well, that left the city with a legacy of gracious classical style architecture visible around the downtown area. To every country-music fan the trip to Nashville is almost a pilgrimage.
This city has many attractions to keep you busy during your stay, apart from the well-known Country Music hall of Fame. The history buffs would be delighted with the visit of the Hermitage, the former home of the seventh president Andrew Jackson, now turned into a museum. To all of you wannabe music virtuosos there is the Gibson Bluegrass Showcase where you can watch musical instruments created in front of your eyes. The lovely Nashville will definitely lure to become part of its magic.
