First GQ, then Conde Naste Traveler, soon after the New York Times hopped on board! Nashville is no stranger to receiving glowing reviews in big time publications. Just last week, another major publication jumped aboard, raving about Nashville.
Popular online news source The Huffington Post included Nashville in its article, ‘20 Awesome U.S. Cities You Need To Visit In Your 20s.’ The list, they explained, was their round-up of must-visit destinations for “the cash-strapped, adventure-seeking, microbrewed-beer loving, locavore millennial…perfect locations for an urban vacation or worthy spots along a road trip.”
Nashville was listed as their first choice, with the online news site touting,
“The capital of Tennessee pretty much has it all — gorgeous green space (the Metro Board of Parks and Recreation manages 10,200 acres of land, including 99 parks), urban culture, collegians, and great food. Nashville was named the best city for live music by the Atlantic Cities, making it worthy of its nickname, “Music City”. Beyond just being home to the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame, the city is known for its jazz scene, music clubs and record stores along Music Row. East Nashville has become a hot spot for the trendy — dare we say “hipster” — set.”
Included with Music City in their must-visit city list were Asheville, N.C.; Portland, Ore.; Denver, Colo.; Kansas City, Miss.; Seattle, Wash.; New Orleans, La.; Austin, Texas; Missoula, Mont.; Burlington, Vt.; Eureka, Calif.; Eugene, Ore.; Minneapolis, Minn.; Omaha, Neb.; Bisbee, Ariz.; Anchorage, Alakas; Ocean City, Md.; Honolulu, Hawaii, Albuquerque, N.M. and Savannah, Ga.
