Things to do if You’re Moving to Nashville

19 September 2015 by

If you’re thinking about moving to Nashville, you’re off to a great city. Nashville is well known for its lively atmosphere and variety of things to do. Much of it goes hand in hand with being the Country Music Mecca of the US.

Ben Cooke, Founder of BCC, LLC says that “there’s a new reason to visit Music City.”

“The Ascend Amphitheater is Nashville’s first inner-city outdoor venue and it is attracting household names to its stage. The city sought out the designers of the famous Hollywood Bowl to create a world class experience for audiences and performers alike,” says Cooke.

So if you’re looking to make the move next year, you may be just in time for these shows.

The amphitheater officially opened in August 2015 and kicks off shows at the end of July with acts like Eric Church, the Counting Crows, Phish, Janet Jackson and more appearing throughout the year according to Cooke.

Need more than music to fall in love with Nashville? Here are a few other things that can be fun for the whole family. But remember– the city has plenty more if none of these strike your fancy.
