No. 3 Nashville
Whether your group still loves Patsy and Loretta—or binge-watches the TV series Nashville—Music City makes the top three for its mix of wild-weekend fun and down-home easy access. It also ranked in the top five for live music, barbecue, and free things to do. To glimpse future stars, hit venues like Robert’s Western World and Bluebird Café. For a dose of camp, take the NashTrash tour, which explores various country-music landmarks from the comforts of a giant pink bus. Browse the rhinestone-cowgirl-ready boots and retro western shirts at Katy K’s Ranch Dressing in the hip 12 South neighborhood (Nashville did rank No. 3 for cool souvenirs), and head to Pinewood Social for dinner and your choice of bowling, bocce, or karaoke.
