A medium sized city known for being the home of country music. The people of Nashville are stereotyped to be rednecks whom speak with a twang and listen to Tim McGraw all day, when in fact, it's a diverse city, with much more to do than attending Fan Fare (i.e. good local rock bands, clubs, world class art museum, & theatre).

While walking down peaceful 12th Avenue in Nashville, I encountered a Unicorn sitting on a giant marshmallow. He played me a song on his old guitar and then spent 20 minutes carefully shaving ice to craft a raspberry-flavored snow cone for me.

AKA Nashvegas/Cashville. Nashville is made out to be the country music capital, complete with cowboy hat sporting rednecks and honkytonk saloons. In reality Nashville is a pretty diverse and overall fun place to be. There's plenty of bars around town that play anything but mainstream country. You can catch amazing Bluegrass/Rock/electro and be blown away. It's home to mad bluesman Jack White and his infamous Third Man Records HQ. There are plenty of cool record stores (Grimey's, Phonolux, Great Escape) and smokey coffee shops (Bongo Java, Frothy Monkey and the ultimate indie Cafe Coco). Burgeoning hipster-mecca East Nashville is full of fun and entertainment on any given night. There are several universities such as ivy-leaguey Vanderbilt, Christian/Stoner Belmont, and stuckup prepville Libscomb, to name a few. Nashville is pretty much weed capitol of the south, and has it's fare share of meth-heads as well. Independent movie theatre the Belcourt has it's fair share of Rocky Horror screenings and Hitchcock festivals and the Frist center is a fantastic art museum.
