Moving to Nashville? Here’s What You Need to Know
With a population larger than Atlanta, a rich history and any amenity you can imagine, it doesn’t take much to entice someone into enjoying Tennessee’s capital city. All of the city’s charming options can prove slightly intimidating, so here are some ideas to keep in mind as you make your mark in Music City.
History…and Not Just Their Own
While Nashville has its fair share of Civil War monuments, such as Stones River, the Battles of Hartsville, Nashville and Franklin, their arguably most intriguing piece of history comes in the form of two exact replicas.
Featuring a 42-foot tall statue of Athena, Nashville built a to-scale copy of Greece’s Parthenon inside their already-outstanding Centennial Park. The homage to Athens also showcases several art installations and can serve as a great place to bring visitors or spend a day.
All the Beautiful Noise
Though it received the ‘Music City’ moniker back in the 1950s, Nashville’s reputation for a variety of music dates well prior. Country and gospel artists have always sought out Nashville as a place to break out into the mainstream, but Music City has just as much credibility as a blues and rock city.
The Grand Ole Opry and Ryman Auditorium hold rightful places as legendary stages, but newfound havens such as the Bluebird Cafe and Station Inn have emerged as excellent places to see (and jam with!) a wide variety of musicians.
A ‘Smash’ing Good Sports Town
Prior to the late 1990s, Nashville did not host a major league sports team. When the NFL’s Titans relocated to Nashville in 1997, fans flocked to Nissan Stadium and were treated to Super Bowl-caliber play in 2000. Meanwhile, the National Hockey League’s Nashville Predators earned their first-ever Stanley Cup Final appearance in 2017, earning a reputation for extremely loud fans and physical play. During that season, the town was loving referred to as ‘Smashville’.
Sports will continue to become more popular in the near future, as Nashville Soccer Club will make their United Soccer League debut in 2018.
Already Great and Only Getting Better
State capitals can sometimes prove to be extremely expensive to live in, but thanks to Davidson County’s size and numerous rural areas, Nashville was ranked as having a cheaper cost of living than numerous southern cities, such as Atlanta, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Dallas, and New Orleans.
However, Nashville shares a similar trait to bustling cities like Austin, Texas: it’s growing…rapidly. This means infrastructure will be expanding, as well, meaning various jobs will always be in supply.
A fantastic city with several fun options and immense potential, Nashville features something for all interests.
