9. Nashville, TN
Why go: Nashville is called Music City for a reason, and never is that more clear than during the fall. There’s the Americana Festival in September, the Breakaway Festival in October, and the CMA Awards in November, with weekly live music events at Centennial Park and plenty of smaller concert series in between.
Where to Stay: The Thompson Nashville shares a block with bluegrass and roots music icon The Station Inn, located downtown in The Gulch neighborhood. The 12-floor hotel is known among locals for its rooftop bar, L.A. Jackson, where you can sip craft cocktails and regional beers while taking in panoramic views of the city.
