Welcome to Nashville
Proudly dubbed "Music City," Nashville is a world-famous hub for culture, music and cuisine. The city is home to approximately 610,000 residents, who are best known for their Southern hospitality. Nashville experiences a humid subtropical climate that creates short, cool winters and hot summers with fantastically long springs and falls in between. Visitors come to explore the bubbling country music scene and delectable barbecue and home cooking, but they can also find Civil War heritage sites and former homes to the presidents of the U.S such as Andrew Jackson. As the second-biggest city in Tennessee, Nashville is a leader in finance and insurance and has a widely diversified economy that lends itself as a meeting place for business travelers.
To get around the city, many visitors hop on the bus rapid transit, which runs throughout the week. For fewer stops and a faster ride than the local service, board the BRT lite. Or, get around downtown with Music City Circuit, a free bus service that serves key destinations. The service stops at more than 75 locations along three routes, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding a ride.
