Ah, Nashville. The place known as, “Music City,” or “The Athens of the South.” Where country dreamers come and music executives grow. Where kids come to college and Tennesseans from the outskirts visit the big city. It’s a city we know and love, but you know – in the end? It’s a city. And with every city comes a couple of risks. We’ve found a couple that trip off the tongue…let us know if YOU know of any!
10. Beware the drivers!
Yeah, yeah - there are bad drivers everywhere. But with the influx of transplants (sorry...) and a lack of efficiency in city infrastructure, it makes for a rough go in the mornings.
9. And the weather.
If you don't like the Nashville weather, wait 24-hours. No one knows what's going on - ever.
8. Be prepared to burn your tongue on HOT chicken.
It's be best kind of burn, though!
7. Finding affordable housing.
Maybe going with the governor's mansion isn't the best decision...? But hey. Rent is high and real estate is higher, so we all know the bite.
6. Watch your allergies…
Tennessee is known as one of the most irritating places for those prone to allergies.
5. You're gonna gain a few pounds.
It's a city for foodies, and we take pride in the beauty of a high calorie, southern dish. Take this french toast from Husk, for example.
4. You'll be positively KILLED with kindness.
Some of the nicest folk in the country, y'all.
3. Church traffic. It's very, very real.
When you need police to direct church traffic? You have some dedicated folk.
2. Be ready for a let down if you're looking for the show, "Nashville."
People just aren't like that, folks. Plus we're a heck of a lot nicer, if you ask us...
1. Don't wear anything but orange on game day.
If you value your life.
