I visited Nashville yesterday for the 2nd time in 3 months, and this time, I saw a bit more of Nashville.

In summary, Nashville is booming! Construction everywhere in the gulch, downtown, music row, midtown, and in new growing areas near the capital, 12 South, and the Nashville Yards area.

You hear Nashville referred to often as "NashVegas." So, thought I'd put a poll up comparing the 2 cities, and getting thoughts on the following categories.

Which city has the...

*Better tourist attractions
*Better bars and clubs
*Better restaurant options
*Cost of living
*Better downtown
*Better neighborhoods
*Better economy
*Better climate
*Better potential in next 10 years for positive growth
*Better public transportation

I voted for Vegas, but that said, Nashville seems to be on the right track. They are certainly correct on marketing the area as the Capital of Country. (or whatever the tourist slogan is right now).

The city has a unique ability to cash in on country music, but this is nothing new. The next step is how to increase the tourism/entertainment industry. Vegas has all this down pat, Nashville is still learning. Perhaps, casinos? Don't know if that is logical, but I think the potential is huge.

Better tourist attractions: Nashville
*Better bars and clubs: Nashville for bars, Vegas for Clubs
*Better restaurant options: Vegas
*Cost of living: Vegas
*Better downtown: Nashville
*Better neighborhoods: Nashville
*Better economy: Nashville
*Better climate: Nashville
*Better potential in next 10 years for positive growth: Tough to say. Probably about even
*Better public transportation: Nashville

I prefer Nashville. Overall the better and more well rounded city. Vegas is better than it get's credit for on CD, but it's hard to ignore it's relative lack of true urbanity and the fact that it will always be viewed as "Sin city".

Nashville is another city Id like to visit. I spend a lot of time in Vegas for work and agree that it is nicer than people give it credit for, but Nashville seems like a city with a lot going on.

No, its not. It's a perfectly reasonable comparison.

*Better tourist attractions (Tie Las Vegas has more adult oriented attractions but Nashville has great history and country music culture).
*Better bars and clubs (Las Vegas and I'm not sure how you can argue it's even close?)
*Better restaurant options (Las Vegas seems like culinary overload to me)
*Cost of living (I'm guessing Las Vegas is better priced based on space)
*Better downtown (Nashville)
*Better neighborhoods (Not sure)
*Better economy (Not sure as well)
*Better climate (Las Vegas, I don't like humidity though)
*Better potential in next 10 years for positive growth (Likely Las Vegas)
*Better public transportation (Las Vegas is building Light Rail, don't believe Nashville is)
