Nashville Makes Top 20 Best Small Towns in America by Smithsonian Magazine

Brown County Culinary Tourism

Nashville, Indiana has been nationally recognized as one of America’s best small towns, securing a spot on Smithsonian Magazine’s “20 Best Small Towns 2015” list. The magazine published its ever-popular list on April 16, with Indiana’s very own Nashville making the cut.

Highlighting Nashville’s lush landscape, arts heritage, and festive environment, Smithsonian Magazine selected Nashville for its one-of-a-kind atmosphere and history. Deemed a ‘bucolic, woodsy paradise for country music fans and art lovers alike,’ Smithsonian Magazine gives nod to the Bill Monroe Bean Blossom Bluegrass Festival, the Brown County Art Gallery, historic homes, handmade treasures and fall colors at the Brown County State Park.

Ellis encourages everyone to visit, “Hopefully this list will inspire everyone to come experience Nashville for themselves. Whether it is one of your favorite places to visit, a place you haven’t been to in a while or a destination you have never seen, Nashville is definitely worth checking out. Art, music, outdoor adventure and nearly 40 festivals year round—there really is something for everyone to enjoy here.”
