What Bert Has To Say About Nashville-Davidson--Murfreesboro--Franklin Metro Area


Nashville is the capital and second largest city in Tennessee. Known worldwide as the center of country music, it has long been a destination for music-related tourism. The city has been working for some time to renovate its downtown area and attract first-class amenities. Areas of downtown, notably the District, have stylish older buildings repurposed into shopping and nightlife areas. Nashville is a big sports town: The Tennessee Titans are the state’s first NFL team and there are minor-league or secondary league teams in just about every sport. Vanderbilt University, Fisk University and an assortment of smaller colleges add a higher education dimension with the expected amenities.
