Where Memphis is known for its blues music, Nashville is known for it’s popping country influences. Thousands of artists have graced the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, and students get the chance to experience it first hand. There are studios to tour, and a visit to the County Music Hall of Fame is a must for country music lovers. But Nashville is more than just music. Students enjoy lunch in Centennial Park, spend the day at the Tennessee State Museums and tour the Belle Mead Plantation. Nashville’s downtown area is a fast-paced and busy area, packed with amazing restaurants and eclectic shops. But it also offers a more rural and suburban feel; a city oozing with southern hospitality and natural beauty. The locals are warm and welcoming, the tea is sweet, the weather is fickle, and the educational opportunities are endless.
