Thanks to very deliberate conservation efforts, Nashville’s downtown district continues to be one of the most authentically Nashvillian neighborhoods. Even with the swarth of new development rising all around, the preservation of some of the most recognizable structures includes the famed Ryman Auditorium, Hume Fogg High School, The Union Station Hotel, and the Trolly Barns to name a few. Both of the city’s professional teams, the Predators and Titans, play downtown. New investment has allowed the city to fund incredible riverfront and urban parks, pedestrian bridges, and the Music City Center, which is one of the top-grossing civic centers in the country.
