Before I moved to Nashville I lived in Los Angeles and New York. I have to say that for me Nashville wins over the City of Angels and the Big Apple.
Here are just some of the reasons I love Nashville.
1.“Welcome to Music City” is the first thing you read when you get off the plane at Nashville’s International airport. Immediately, you feel happy to be here. Way to go, Nashville!
2.Speaking of music, Nashville lives and breathes it. Music is everywhere; at any time, on any given day. And not just country music.
3.Nashville’s topography is stunning. We have lakes, rolling hills, rivers, tons of trees with gorgeous blossoms, etc.
4.People in Nashville are genuinely kind. They talk to you and they actually care about what you say. I have never seen so many friendly cashiers, waiters, sales people, etc. in one place.
5.Cost of living. How did we ever survive in L.A. and New York? People in Nashville don’t have to be rich to buy a home for their family. I should have moved here years ago.
6.During Christmas time Opryland is so beautiful. There are over one million lights hung all over the property. It’s truly magical.
7.No state tax. Need I say more?
8.Vanderbilt University. I don’t just love it because my daughter goes there but because the campus is pretty and so traditional. It’s fun to just walk around there and soak in the slower pace of life Nashville offers.
9.The Pancake Pantry is a family-run restaurant that makes the best pancakes. Whenever we eat there we feel ten pounds heavier and swear we won’t eat for the next two days. Nope, never happens.
10.YMCA. Yes, you read it here. Nashville has the best YMCA I have ever seen in my life. It’s state-of-the-art, super clean, and of course, run by a bunch of friendly people who greet me by my name.
So there you have it. Ten things I love about Nashville. There are plenty more reasons why I love living in Nashville. Maybe I’ll write about them in my future posts.
