Nashville is the capital of Tennessee and the 23rd most populous city in the United States. Widely regarded as the cultural center of country music, tourists flock to Nashville to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame, the bars on Broadway and the historic Grand Ole Opry. These experiences are all open and accessible to wheelchair users, who will enjoy the city just as much as their able-bodied friends (I know that I did!).

Although music is a critical part of the city’s DNA, Nashville has a lot more to offer. It’s home to the Tennessee Titans of the NFL and the Nashville Predators of the NHL, with sporting arenas located downtown. The city is at the center of the Tennessee Whiskey Trail, with multiple distilleries in Nashville and many more just a short drive away. The city is an important stop for foodies, with popular dishes including hot chicken, barbecue and “meat and three” served across the city. And, like most cities of its size, Nashville boasts an impressive selection of art, culture and history museums that appeal to many.
