Go South for the Summer!

Summer will be in full swing before you know it, and many of us have one thing on the mind – finding the ultimate summer getaway.

Where should you head? The beach like always? Or maybe something different? Instead of choosing a typical Martha’s Vineyard or Miami destination, head south to some of the country’s best inland cities!

Think the south can't be luxurious? Think again! For instance, the best swimming pools Nashville has to offer are just as luxurious as private estates in Cape Cod, or swanky Hawaii poolside resorts. There is much more to love about Nashville and the other beautiful cities in the South. Forget about the “usual suspects” of vacation hot spots that are overdone. Try something new this summer!

Nashville is also home to many exciting entertainment options. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and Grand Ole Opry highlight Nashville’s strong country music presence. The Ryman Auditorium and Schermerhorn Symphony Center are premium concert venues in country and classical music. Belle Meade Plantation, Radnor Lake State Park, Lane Motor Museum, Cheekwood Botanical Gardens & Museum of Art and much more gives Nashville its proper status as a diverse cultural city that will surely impress you.
