I have always wanted to travel the South of the United States and after a business trip to the US, we decided to finally check out the south of this big country. We flew from New York to Nashville, which takes approximately 2 hours, and rented a car with Budget. We chose Nashville as we were intrigued by this city's reputation as the Music City.
We learned that Nashville was established when the earliest settlers celebrated in the late 1700s with fiddle tunes and buck dancing after safely disembarking on the shores of the Cumberland River in Tennessee.
Since then the city has become the hometown of music drawing in singers, songwriters, and musicians from all over and from all different kinds of musical directions. We got excited and planned our trip there. Finding a hotel was not an easy task as we were staying in Nashville over the weekend. It seems to be the weekend destination for Bachelor Parties and for people who are really into music. After some research, a friend of mine helped us to get an industry rate at the Aloft Nashville Franklin in Cool Springs, which is twenty minutes outside of Nashville towards the South. It is a modern lifestyle hotel with a fair price and good internet as well as free parking, so we decided to go for it. The hotel is located next to the Cool Springs Galleria, a large Shopping Mall and perfect for everyone in need of some retail therapy.
