Are you someone who just can’t get enough of music? Are you one of those people who always have headphones on? Are you one of the music addicts who just can’t stop exploring new genres and bands?
If the answer to all the above questions is yes, then you must visit two musical destinations, Nashville and New Orleans.
When traveling gets blended with music, it only gets better. And when you visit places where music is lifeblood, the experience becomes exceptional. In this article we are going to cover two destinations rich in musical heritage. From hard rock and roll to smooth jazz, these destinations have everything your eardrums crave. So let’s get started.
One of the prime musical destinations of America is Nashville. Doesn’t matter what your ears adore — rock, blues, classical or country, Nashville will satisfy all of your musical cravings. Tourists can catch live shows that take place in the Bridgestone arena, Tennessee performing arts center and Ryman auditorium and those who want to take a peek at the musical history can visit museums.
Nashville has museums dedicated to George Jones and Johnny Cash and if you want to get immersed in the music while exploring, we highly recommend you visit Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, National Museum of African American Music, Willie Nelson and Friends Museum and Nashville Souvenirs and the Historic RCA Studio.
The best time to visit this music-rich destination is from April to October. If you want to hear great Christmas songs, you can also visit in the month of December. To explorers who are not a big fan of crowded places, we would advise them to avoid planning a trip in June and July.
Also known as the birthplace of jazz, New Orleans is also an abode to some of the greatest musicians of all time. The best time to visit this musical destination is during Jazz fest that takes place every year. The fest covers several genres including gospel, jazz, rock, and soul and if you are a true music lover, you can’t afford to miss this grand event. Mardi Gras is another event that lasts for weeks and features performances as well as parades. Some of the most popular music festivals of New Orleans are French Quarter festival, Essence festival, Voodoo music experience and Ponderosa Stomp.
For all the people who love history and culture, the city offers plenty of opportunities to get immersed and explore. National WWII Museum, Preservation Hall, St Louis Cathedral, City Park and Louisiana State Museum at the Cabildo are some of the highly recommended spots.
The best time to visit this destination is from February to May. If you are someone who is not interested in witnessing Mardi Gras, we would recommend you to plan your trip between December and January.
Not only these destinations attract millions of travelers but also attract new singers and amateur songwriters every year. These destinations are known to welcome every music lover with open arms. When destinations are gorgeous, food is delicious, music is spilling from every corner of the street and the history and culture are astonishing, what more one can ask for?
