Nashville, this hip Southern city boasts excellent restaurants, dazzling new hotels (plus a few classics), and enough entertainment and nightlife to fill weeks on end.
Sing your heart out at the famed Ryman Auditorium, which celebrates its 130th anniversary in 2022, or catch a show at the Grand Ole Opry before heading to Corsair Distillery, Nashville’s first since prohibition, for a tasting of their award-winning whiskeys. The distillery, which has two locations in town, also makes excellent pot-distilled gin if the brown stuff isn’t to your liking.
Sample some of the cuisine Nashville is known for. You can’t go wrong with long-standing favorites like Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack. Still, newer eateries, like Lou, a low-key, natural wine bar serving California-inspired cuisine, are turning pre-conceived notions about the Music City on their head.
