Nashville is a chart-topping hit! Known everywhere as Music City, it is alive with entertainment, food, and history. Three intersecting interstate highways and a buzzing international airport make it easy to reach. Whether you are a conventioneer, a vacationer, or a new transplant, 100 Things To Do in Nashville Before You Die delivers a trove of adventures, diversions, tasty meals, and top-notch music. Even natives will have unexpected discoveries.
Travel writer Tom Adkinson grew up in Nashville, worked for decades in its entertainment and hospitality industry, and has written about Music City since the 1970s. Throughout 100 Things to Do in Nashville Before You Die, he shows you special places for live music, introduces you to surprising restaurants (including Nashville’s oldest and one that doesn’t open until 10 p.m.), points out that Tennessee’s Capitol also is a crypt, offers quiet places for nature retreats right in the city, and much more. This is no typical guidebook.
