Why now: Nashville is the largest city wholly within the path of a total solar eclipse that will sweep across the United States on August 21. Meanwhile, the iconic Ryman Auditorium celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2017 while the nearby Country Music Hall of Fame turns 50. Both promise packed calendars and big stars to mark the occasions.
What to see: Beyond all the cowboy boots and neon lights, Nashville is building a name for itself as a millennial mecca with fashionable neighborhoods like The Gulch, 12 South, and East Nashville brimming with brewpubs, wacky ice-cream parlors, and hipster coffeehouses.
