The Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau Welcomes You to Music City

Welcome to Music City! We are honored to host the 28th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference, June 18-23, and we hope you enjoy your time experiencing the sights and sounds that make Nashville unique.

Nashville has everything from an electrifying multi-genre music scene, award-winning cuisine and world-class art, to a burgeoning fashion scene, a myriad of attractions, unique shopping, college and professional sports, and more. With all that Nashville has to offer, the city is undoubtedly one for all seasons and styles, but it’s the city’s genuine southern hospitality, friendliness and authenticity that truly resonates with our visitors and guests. The vibe in Nashville is unlike anywhere else, and we can’t wait for you to experience it firsthand.

Nashville is THE “Music City” and 2017 marks major anniversaries for some of Nashville’s most iconic music establishments, several of which are within walking distance of the Music City Center in downtown Nashville.

  • The Ryman Auditorium celebrates 125 years
  • The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum celebrates 50 years
  • The Historic RCA Studio B celebrates 60 years
  • The GRAMMY-award winning Nashville Symphony and the Schermerhorn Symphony Center celebrate 70 years and 10 years, respectively
  • The Music City Walk of Fame celebrates 10 years
  • The Bluebird Cafe celebrates 35 years

Each of these institutions offer a distinctive look into Nashville’s rich music history and is worth a visit while you're in town. The Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum, which honors musicians from all genres of music, and The George Jones, Johnny Cash, and Patsy Cline museums are also located downtown. These museums offer a more in-depth look at some of country music’s legends. And don’t forget to check out Nashville’s world-famous honky tonks lining Lower Broadway!

Take some time to explore a few of Nashville’s unique neighborhoods that help give the city its character: 12South, Germantown, East Nashville or The Gulch. No matter what part of town you are in, you will find great cuisine and one-of–a-kind shops owned by Nashville makers and artisans. We also suggest visiting The Frist Center for the Visual Arts, which has a rotating schedule of impressive exhibitions from local, regional, national and international sources.

Hatch Show Print Store & Gallery, located in the Country Music Hall of Fame building, is another must see. Operating since 1879, Hatch Show Print is the oldest working letter press poster shop and is responsible for some of the most iconic show posters in music history. Guests can visit to see posters roll off the presses and can buy their own to take home.

Nashville’s creative spirit has infiltrated its kitchens, turning them into the chef’s studio. And lucky for you, all types of cuisine that helped put Nashville on the map as a culinary destination can be found right around the corner from the Music City Center. For barbecue, check out Martin’s Bar-B-Que SoBro, Peg Leg Porker or Jack’s Bar-B-Que. For a traditional "meat and three," visit Arnold’s Country Kitchen or Monell’s. For a taste of the Nashville original hot chicken, saunter down to Party Fowl or Hattie B’s Hot Chicken. And to experience a world-class, chef-driven restaurant, try Etch, The Capitol Grille or 5th & Taylor.

However you choose to spend your free time while in Nashville, we hope you have a wonderful time and enjoy all this great city offers. We know this won't be your last trip to Music City, so be sure to visit our website for tips and information for your future trips!
