Renter's Guide to Nashville
Welcome to Music City U.S.A, y’all!
Most people know Nashville as the home of country music, but this metropolitan city is much more than cowboy boots and line dancing. It’s the second largest city in Tennessee, as well as its capital. It's also the 5th biggest city in the Southeast.
Travel + Leisure magazine recently named Nashville the 5th Best City in the U.S., based on its food, culture, shopping, and value.
With 208 sunny days per year and seasonable temperatures, like an average of 46°F in January, and 89°F in July, it’s easy to see why Nashville is so popular. Even snow lovers get about 10 inches per year to play in.
Settled in the northern part of Tennessee, the city is five times the size of nearby Franklin, which is just 22 miles away. You can also take a day trip to Memphis, just 212 miles away, or to Chattanooga, which is 133 miles from Nashville.
