Middle Tennessee is one of the three Grand Divisions of the U.S. state of Tennessee and is roughly located in the center of the state. Middle Tennessee contains the state's capital and largest city, Nashville. 

Nashville, or "Music City," is best known as the birthplace of country music. 


Top attractions in the region include the Grand Ole Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Discovery Center, Ryman Auditorium, Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, Johnny Cash Museum, Cannonsburgh Village, Frist Art Museum, The Parthenon, the Tennessee State Museum, and Jack Daniel's Distillery.

Awe-inspiring beauty awaits on the Natchez Trace Parkway. The Trace begins in Nashville, and runs through the southwestern part of Middle Tennessee.

In addition, the state operates many state parks in Middle Tennessee that preserve the historic sites and natural features of the region. These parks provide recreational opportunities such as camping and fishing, and offer educational programs on the history and culture of the area. They are popular destinations for both local residents and tourists alike.
