Nashville Vacations & Travel Packages!
The capital city of the US state of Tennessee, Nashville is located almost in the heart of the state on the Cumberland River. Boasting a number of universities and colleges and a superb reproduction of the Parthenon, this city often called the "Athens of the South." Nashville is perhaps best known as the capital of country music. This culture of music can be explored by tourists on Nashville vacation at the attractions such as the Country Music Hall of Fame and the city's famous Music Row district. The city is an apt jumping-off point to visit the rest of the state. Surrounding areas of Nashville offer several historical and recreational attractions. Weather-wise, the best time to visit Nashville is from April through October, when the weather is warm and brings this music city to life. December is also charming with Christmas decorations, yet the winter is low season in terms of tourism in Nashville. If visiting the city during the best time, visitors must book their Nashville travel packages in advance as the flight fares and hotel prices tend to rise.
