I think Nashville is good for a certain demographic but you couldn't convince me to go back to a southern city in the bible belt. The QOL is subjective, but I will agree that the general QOL is higher than in Las Vegas.
Thanks for your perspective. I didn't mean the thread was unfair, just the characterization of minimizing Las Vegas as just the strip.

What in the world were you doing? Were you actually going around asking people for their passports? You ought to be embarrassed implying something so asinine that Nashville doesn't get international tourists. It's absolute nonsense.

On top of that what makes an international tourist any better than a national tourist? The answer is nothing.

That's another unenlightened statement.

What towers has downtown Las Vegas been developing?

Are you implying that Nashville just began having conventions and tourism? If so that's more absurdity.

What is this "higher prior year base number to spring board from" statement? What does that even mean? The statement doesn't make any sense.

*Better tourist attractions
Vegas
There is so much more to see as a tourist. The average tourist could spend 4 days here easily but they would spend a lot of money being entertained. Nashville doesn't have the diversity or the number of attractions to hold most peoples attention that long.

Then why are Nashville hotels consistently booking rooms for 4-day weekends?

I am not a clubber or a bar person but I would guess Vegas. People from all over the place come to Vegas to party. I still don't see that happening in Nashville outside of country music.
Then why are so many people who are not country music fans coming to Nashville?

The country music meme has played out. Nobody outside of city forum dorks takes the bait on that.

Hurt much? Read the comment I was responding to, then it might make sense. If it still doesn't then sorry I can't help you.

Looks like I offended the wrong guy? Bro, I have never lived or ever want to live in either of those cities. Interestingly, I've been going to Nashville at least once a year for the past 4 years and I frequent Vegas as well for both work and pleasure. I was just stating my observation, which stands corrected, but please relax on your efforts to prop up Nashville.

Every 2-3 weeks there's an announcement of a new tower in Nashville.

Every day of the week there are at least three concerts, at least one comedy show, and at least one theatrical in Nashville.

Cities are going head to head with Nashville sports teams and events and have lost.

Cities have gone head to head against Nashville for corporate relocations and have lost.


People can't handle it because it violates their made up hierarchy. But so what.

Nashville is box office.

I’ve only been to Nashville once in late September, maybe early October, back in 2013 I believe for a Chargers/Titans game. A group of us would go to an away game every year and Nashville, against my wishes, got the draw. I will say don’t judge a book by its cover, I was pleasantly surprised by it. I found it to be more enjoyable than most cities in that part of the country, including Atlanta. In fairness I haven’t spent much time in that region.

With that said Nashville and Las Vegas aren’t even in the same league. Just the entertianment and dining options alone puts Vegas on a level most cities in this world can’t compete with. I’m not saying I want to live there, but there is much more to the city than the strip. I have friends that grew up there and I’ve been to their friends and families houses. It just like most cities with strip malls, neighborhoods, and parks, but with all the world class amenities within close reach.

Let’s not forget Las Vegas is a very cheap 1 hour flight, or 4-5 hour car ride to the beaches of Southern California, and cities of Los Angeles and San Diego. I’m biased, but that alone would give it my vote. I will say it again that Nashville is a great city though.
