NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Music City has such a fun vibe, and some people are taking it too far.
There are places worth exploring, such as the state capital, and places worth avoiding, such as whatever in the world the drunken debauchery on Broadway is.
Amid the drunken “woos” of bachelorette parties and buzzed hipsters on scooters playing chicken with cars, excellent food, history and random country music superstar hopefuls playing in the hotel lobby abound.
It’s interesting to see how Nashville has changed over the years — the city continues to grow, and new buildings are going up everywhere. It’s a shame to see some old Nashville landmarks, such as the Ernest Tubb Record Shop on Broadway, give way to modern development.
Music City will always be a railroad town to me regardless of the past or future changes. No visit is complete without a visit to Union Station or a ride on the Tennessee Central Railway Museum, an opportunity to take a step back in time and take a detour away from the chaos of Broadway.
