Things They Don’t Tell You About Nashville Before You Move Here
After four months in Nashville, it’s clear that my move here was a great idea.
Beyond the stuff I can say about my work, Nashville has surprised me in more ways than I can count. The only thing that I really wish I could have had before I moved here was a little more information about adjusting to life here in Music City, USA.
In an attempt to rectify that, I have tried my hand at listing out a few:
- Before you get the inclination to go shopping, realize that only tourists wear cowboy hats on Broadway.
- At most bars, if you order anything else other than a beer or a vodka/whiskey/rum cocktail you’ve probably already given away where you’re from.
- The weather is completely ADD…one day its warm, the next you are chipping ice-sickles off your truck. Pack accordingly.
- Parking downtown will cost you an arm and a leg so take cabs if you can.
- Don’t worry about re-discovering your southern roots, in a town like this they’ll find you when they’re good and ready.
I could go on for some time but you get the idea. Anyone care to add anything?
