Last year alone Nashville was ranked #3 by CNN as a "City Where Startups Thrive," and also #3 in Travel + Leisure's "America's Best Cities." The city's friendly locals, good food, affordability, job potential, safety and cleanliness are often cited factors in ranking Nashville on lists such as "Cities Getting Smarter the Fastest" and "Top 10 Budget Destinations for 2013."
We are known as "Music City," yes, and while the music business is a huge economic driver, there are other aspects to Nashville that aren't as widely known.
