It's always good to see Nashville being recognized by the national media and even better when it's from the the New York Times! The NYT has listed Nashville amongst "52 Places to Go in 2014"
This is a fascinating article and made all the more interesting in that the "pictures" associated with recommended cities and locations are actual little movie clips. This actually has the feel of a "Harry Potter" newspaper :)))
Here is a clip from the article that references Nashville and 51 other places to see in 2014.
"Country music lovers have long made the pilgrimage to Nashville, but now the city has fast gained cachet among rock fans and foodies. The city’s vibrant scene is home to the Black Keys, Kings of Leon, Jeff the Brotherhood and Diarrhea Planet, who all play in town occasionally. And a youthquake is transforming scruffy neighborhoods like 12South and East Nashville into hipster hubs. New hangouts include Pinewood Social, a bar, restaurant, bowling alley and karaoke joint, and the 404, a restaurant and boutique hotel in a former auto garage. Add to that a thriving culinary scene, exemplified by the Music City Eats Festival, back for a second year in September. And Nashville’s old standbys — like the honky-tonk Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge and the venerable Ryman — are as fun as ever."
