Moving to Nashville: A New Homeowner’s Guide to Music City Part One: Why Nashville?

Many people decide to build custom homes in Nashville, Tennessee because it is the home of country music. But there are a plethora of other things that Music City has going for it. Once your local residential builder has built your new home, you can dive into all that Nashville has to offer.

Basic Information

There is a lot going on in Nashville, Tennessee:

  • Growth – Nashville has just under 700,000 residents in the city (according to the census results) and the metropolitan area is booming with almost 1.6 million people.

Lots of Things to Do

When you’re not relaxing in your new custom built home, you can always find things to do in Music City:

It offers a full-size recreation of a statue of Athena and an art museum. There are even walking trails, events throughout the summer, and a small lake. If you are looking for other outdoor activities, you may want to look up the Nashville Parks and Recreation Department to see what activities they have going on.

  • Music – Being in Music City, you are sure to find some live music to enjoy. But while country music is more heavily present, you will also find all genres of music represented.
