If you're looking to get to know your new city, you need to know where to start. Here are some of the top must-see attractions for those just relocating to Nashville.
You've probably heard of it since it's a National Historical Landmark, but have you seen the Ryman Auditorium yet? If not, this is a great place to start.
The Ryman Auditorium opened in 1892 as a Gospel Tabernacle. It was later made the place for the Grand Ole Opry broadcasts. While it did close for a while, it reopened in 1994 as a performance venue and museum. It's the place for great concerts, shows and just to visit.
Hit the Malls
While there's not much history behind the Malls of Nashville, getting to know the malls is a great way to get to know your city. There are six great malls found throughout the city including:
- The Mall at Green Hills
- Hill Center Green Hills
- Rivergate Mall
- Opry Mills
- Cool Springs Galleria

You probably don't need to visit all six of these malls, but knowing which one is closest to your new home and what they offer is a good start.
