Nashville is like Austin's sister city. Both are very similar. Can't go wrong with either

Default Nashville vs Austin

As I have stated here often I lived in Austin for ten years and am a fan overall. Visiting Nashville right now for a few days so hear are my impressions.:

Nashville is friendlier
Nashvilles downtown seems a little busier on a week night. Lot of tourists , but that means kids and old folks. Keep in mind I'm here for spring break.
I think the reason for that may be spring break and Austin has a few different party districts
Nashville is friendlier and much less diverse.
Every bar I. Nashville seems to have live music and Nashville is very very country. Everyone speaks with a twang
Nashville appears to be more affordable.
Nashville has much less traffic. Much less hipsters
Nashville residents seem to be more conscious about the way they dress, much classier than Austin but also trying a lot harder. Did I mention everyone has a country accent?
Seems like you can smoke in some Nashville bars
Not as tech oriented
While it's whiter, it had more blacks and less Mexicans than Austin
Nashville downtown has better infrastructure. There are times you can't walk on 6th
I think Nashville isn't as hot.
Nashville is so country. It's insane

Want to clarify that while people were friendly, not many tried to chat with me at the bar. And a lot of country music, like that's all I heard. Talented but idk very cliched and corny delivery by most

No way. Nashville is whiter than Austin? Austin is a very white city, Nashville is more diverse (though like you said, austin has more mexicans). I read an article that said Austin is the only major city that has a declining black population. That says alot.

Nashville in 2016 was 57.4% non-Hispanic white, Austin 48.6% non-Hispanic white. Austin is a majority minority city. Nashville does have a significantly larger black population, but smaller Latinx and Asian populations. Austin is the whitest big city in Texas, but Texas as a whole is one of four majority minority states in the U.S. along with HI, CA and NM. Nashville remains a majority white city, Austin is no longer, so yes, Nashville is whiter than Austin. Just the facts.

Austin has a lot more Asianshispanics no probably muslims. Nashville downtown is very white. That's neither good or bad.
