About the area:
Nicknamed "Music City, U.S.A.", Nashville is the home of the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and many major record labels. Nashville is also a major hub for the health care and publishing industries.
Because of its abundance of educational institutions and classical architecture, Nashville has been styled as the "Athens of the South." In the twentieth century no building has contributed more to the aptness of this description than Nashville's Parthenon, the world's only full-scale replica of the ancient Greek temple.
Other attractions include the Loretta Lynn Ranch, Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art, The Hermitage - Home of President Andrew Jackson.
