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. While known for traditional meat-and-three joints and hot chicken, Nashville has also become a creative incubator for many award-winning culinary white coats.
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. The minor league baseball team Nashville Sounds also call the area home.
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.

I grew up in the Philadelphia area so I can speak volumes about why you should live here. Philadelphia is tso hours from New York, Baltimore, the Chesapeake Bay and Washington, D.C. It’s two hours to the shore, what we call the beaches in Jersey. You’re two hours to fishing, skiing, and hiking in the Pocono Mountains.
There are cheesesteak and hoagies stores on nearly every corner. It’s a cottage industry around here. And of course, there’s WaWa, ask a local about that.
Sports team? The Eagles, the Phillies, the 76ers, the Flyers, and the Union.
Restaurants abound in the city and in the suburbs.
History? If you have to ask, maybe this isn’t for you.
Art, theater, music, and culture? Let me put it this way, you don’t have enough time to sample it all.
Outdoor? Parks, trails, woodlands, lakes, rivers, whether you’re in the city proper or in the suburbs, you can take your pick.
Look, you’ll be working at the NBC-owned station — once you get here, you’ll never want to live anywhere else. Got questions about living here? Call me. I know what I’m talking about.
