If you’re seeking work as a surgical neurophysiologist, then Nashville, Tennessee, is an excellent place to consider finding a job.

But Nashville offers much more than that, and there are a few things you’ll want to know about it before you decide to take a job there.

Nashville Is Growing
Lots of cities are growing, so it may seem odd to mention this fact — but Nashville is not your typical burgeoning metropolis. It’s a small town of a big city, both in culture and atmosphere. It has seen tremendous growth and development over the past decade, but as much as builders have worked to expand it, they simply can’t keep up. Nashville’s commercial centers have spilled out into the many neighborhoods surrounding the metro area. This means that you’ll see busy restaurants right in the middle of residential areas (which are now highly coveted real estate).
You’ll Have Plenty of Places to Explore (and Eat)
Nashville is known as Music City, and it lives up to that name. You’ll find music playing in venues just about everywhere, all the time, from concerts in large arenas to singer-songwriter shows in basements (yes, there is actually a venue called The Basement that was once — you guessed it — someone’s basement). Because music is everywhere, you can go to shows fairly cheaply nearly any night of the week. Broadway, a long street in the center of downtown that is home to neon lights, bars, carriage rides, and pedal taverns, is a common tourist attraction — but you don’t have to go anywhere near there to have fun or eat great food. Each neighborhood around the city has its own unique restaurants for you to visit as well as boutique coffee shops selling novelties such as “coffee soda.” On your days off from the hospital, you can visit the 12 South neighborhood for Five Daughters Donuts and farmer’s market goods; take a trip to East Nashville for a phosphate at The Pharmacy; or hit Germantown for a Chicago-style pie at 321 Pizza Company. And wherever you go, make sure to sample Jeni’s ice cream (where you can taste as many flavors for free as you want). If you’re an art buff, check out the Frist Art Museum in downtown — and while you’ll have music aplenty, you can never go wrong by attending a concert at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
It’s a Hipster Haven
If Portland has grunge hipsters and Austin has weird hipsters, Nashville has polished hipsters. The hipster culture in this city has true artisanal flair, from fedora hats and curled mustaches to velvet suits, statement eyewear, suspenders, and jeans with carefully rolled-up cuffs. If you want to move to Nashville, prepare to embrace the unique, highly curated style that you’ll quickly notice as you explore the city. Hipster culture in Nashville thrives on everything fair-trade, natural, organic, and charitable, so you will easily find ways to eat healthy, save the environment, and give back to your fellow man.
