Why It’s Great for Techies:

Nashville may be best known for music, but its tech scene is fast becoming a hit of its own. With many co-working spaces to choose from, techies can build a home for their own businesses in the city. Even better, Nashville-based tech startups have been raking in VC money lately, showing that investors are starting to see Music City as a formidable tech hub.

What Sets It Apart:

It’s no secret that Nashville has a lot to offer on the music front, with attractions like the Grand Ole Opry providing plenty of entertainment to fans. It’s also a major player in the healthcare industry and is home to Vanderbilt University.
