Hear and Taste Nashville with RCI

Nashville is hot—and we’re not just talking about the city’s signature dish, hot chicken. Tennessee’s biggest city has a growing reputation as a culinary and cultural destination, evidenced by its appearance on recent top 10 lists from Lonely Planet, Travel + Leisure and The New York Times.

Even with everything else the city has to offer, Nashville visitors should know it’s called Music City for a reason. A trip to Lower Broadway, aka the Honky-Tonk Highway, is a must: Music streams from bars along this stretch day and night, just as cold beer streams from their taps (“honky-tonkin’” is Nashville lingo for barhopping). Sample the establishments, pick your favorite and settle in for the night. True music lovers can cruise Music Row (the heart of the city’s recording industry), the Country Music Hall of Fame—and, of course, the legendary Grand Ole Opry.

To partake in the art and culinary offerings that have raised Nashville’s profile, soak up some culture in the galleries of the Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood, or check out edgier galleries in East Nashville. You’ll find the city’s gastronomical specialties all over. Look for hot chicken (spicy fried chicken on white bread—Prince’s Hot Chicken invented it, and it’s still considered one of the city’s best), meat-and-three (a meat entrée plus three Southern sides of your choice, like creamed corn, mac and cheese, and black-eyed peas) and fluffy biscuits. Top it off with a tall glass of sweet tea, and enjoy the epicenter of country-urban living.
