Greater Downtown Nashville
It may be nicknamed “Music City,” but Nashville is so much more than just country music. It’s a city of culture and history, haute cuisine, pro sports, outstanding academics, natural beauty and pure Southern charm.
Recently, Forbes ranked Nashville as the third best-positioned city “to grow and prosper in the coming decade”, No. 6 on its list of the Best Places for Businesses and Careers and as the No. 4 “Brain Magnet” for gains in people with college educations. Nashville’s current momentum is based, in part, on the plethora of attractive cultural and entertainment options, including:
- Conde Nast Traveler listed Nashville as one of “5 best places to go in 2013″

- Successful and well-respected NFL and NHL franchises

- Over 12,000 acres of parks and 12 golf courses
- Nashville has live music of multiple genres being performed every night. With more than 180 recording studios, and 5,000 working musicians, Nashville is clearly “Music City.” Music is the reason that many people come to Nashville, but our two major sports teams, extensive park system, and endless arts and cultural opportunities offer people plenty of reasons to stay.
Residential areas around Nashville cater to different lifestyles. Neighborhoods such as Midtown and West End offer the best convenience, due to its central location. Here, shopping centers, convenience stores, restaurants, bars and entertainment venues are all within reach.
Sylvan Park, Hillsboro Village, and Germantown meanwhile, are the best places to raise a family, due to the high volume of single-family homes and the friendly neighborhood atmosphere.
If you’re looking for more upscale and trendy locations, areas such as The Gulch, Demonbreun, and Downtown Nashville will take you closer to the action, offering easy access to the bars, music venues, and other entertainment joints scattered around the area. Properties here consist mostly of high-rise condos and apartment buildings, and are better suited for young adults rather than families.
