How Travelers Find Harmony in Music City

Published August 5, 2021

What if, before putting on scrubs for the day, you could kayak Nashville’s Cumberland River, take in the city’s spectacular skyline and make plans to attend an outdoor concert over the weekend in a metro area known throughout the country as “Music City?”

As a traveling nurse or tech in Nashville, that’s all possible.

Travelers don’t just get to travel, although that is one of the biggest perks. They get to experience a new place to whatever extent they’d like to, in whatever way suits them best. And in Nashville, there are so many ways — particularly for those who appreciate country music and the history the city offers.

Beyond having the ability to explore a new destination, travelers earn nearly twice as much as what their permanent peers do, which makes it that much easier and more enjoyable to discover the ins and outs of a vibrant, new city. And with dozens of facilities that may be in need of cardiovascular care support, options in this desirable city are almost endless.

At Springboard Healthcare, we see traveling nurses and techs who choose to work in Nashville for a variety of reasons, including the chance to explore a country music mecca, the opportunity to earn more and work towards a financial goal, the ability to live closer to friends or family, or the opportunity to work alongside and learn from industry veterans.

Whether you prefer to wear cowboy boots or water shoes before or after your shift, Nashville offers an abundance of adventures for travelers to fit into their schedules.

If you love Nashville’s music history, consider:

  • The Grand Ole Opry, a famed auditorium that has hosted performances from some of music’s biggest stars, including Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks and Loretta Lynn.
  • The Country Music Hall of Fame, a destination that chronicles the history of country music through its most talented stars.
  • Johnny Cash Museum, a comprehensive living anthology of one of country music’s most beloved musicians told through artifacts and memorabilia.

If you prefer to be outdoors, explore: 

  • Centennial Park, an expansive area that includes a Parthenon replica, a walking trail, a garden and monuments.
  • The city’s 180-mile greenway, which includes 90 miles of off-road trails, offers protection from traffic and a scenic route through and around the city.
  • A full-moon paddleboard excursion on Percy Priest Lake, when the calendar allows.

And if you have time for a weekender, Great Smoky Mountains National Park — generally the most well-attended park in the country — is just three hours outside of Nashville. It’s like the icing on the cake, even if you aren’t outdoorsy.

The best part? Springboard travelers headed to Nashville only need to worry about where to store their guitar pick, since our relationship managers offer support with placement, logistics, and housing.
