Get to know Nashville, Tennessee.
city population: 691,243
Did you know Nashville ranks fifth in the nation for growth? It's not just economic growth either - between 2000 and 2008, Nashville had the fastest immigrant population growth of any city in the country. Today, Nashville is home to the largest Kurdish population in the United States as well as one of the largest Laotian populations. In all, more than 140 different languages can be heard in the hallways of Metro Nashville public schools.
Nashville's rich music, foodie and cultural offerings has increasingly made it a popular destination to visit and live. Enjoy tourist hotspots like the Country Music Hall of Fame and the honky-tonks on Broadway, or check out local destinations like Jack White's Third Man Records and Plaza Mariachi.
Most teachers will need or want a car to get around Nashville. If you're downtown, there are public transit routes to major tourist attractions; the Music City Circuit is a circulator bus offering free service around the city Monday through Saturday, and the Green Circuit and Blue Circuit provide additional service to top destinations.
