Nashville beckons in 2015
National Pavement Expo
exhibitors and attendees LOVE
Nashville for its easy access
whether you drive or fly, great
food and evening activities, and
affordable lodging. In fact, Nashville
is the birthplace of NPE … our
hometown.
Voted by Conde Nast Traveler in
2013 as one of the Top 5 cities to visit,
Nashville is booming and the Music
City Center is the new pulse of it all.
Known for its trendy new restaurants
and its eclectic music scene, Nashville
has become a popular destination for
many. Whether you are a sports fanatic,
a music lover, or a fine-dining foodie,
you will find it in Nashville. Endless
entertainment options are just steps
away from the Music City Center. People
watch at the famous honky tonks, tour
the Country Music Hall of Fame, or
catch a hockey game. “
The new Nashville offers
two things worth traveling for: a
hot, trendy new food scene and
its famous, funky music scene.
The ‘haute southern’ cuisine is
flourishing in Nashville at
restaurants like The Patterson
House and The Catbird Seat. Not to
mention some of the tastiest and
most creative cocktails we’ve ever
tried. At night, you can’t walk two
blocks without coming across some
incredible live music, from bluegrass
to brass bands, zydeco to country.
