Nashville is famous for the Grand Ole Opry and twangy honky-tonks, but music is just a byproduct of the larger city culture. Food is also a really big deal.

Residents also have a fair share of blue in their wardrobe as swarms of Tennessee Titans (NFL) and Nashville Predators (NHL) fans periodically take over the town on game days. There are a lot of activities for families too. Centennial Park, the Adventure Science Center and the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere are often packed with strollers on weekends.
