Nashville

If you love music, you’re definitely going to love Nashville Tennessee ! Although the city is rather spread out, properties are concentrated in three main areas: East Nashville Tennessee, which covers the Opryland area; Midtown Nashville, near “Music Row”; and Downtown Nashville Tennessee, which includes the business district. Founded in 1779, Nashville was originally called Fort Nashborough, in honor of acclaimed Revolutionary War hero General Francis Nash. In 1784, the community’s name was changed from Nashborough to Nashville. The city became Tennessee’s capital from 1812 to 1815 and was permanently established as the capital in 1843.

Nashville is the capital of Tennessee and a vital transportation, business and tourism center for North America. The Nashville Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), in the state’s center, comprises eight counties and over one million in population. The Nashville region’s economy is diverse and mirrors the national economy. The area benefits from low unemployment, consistent job growth, substantial outside investment and expansion, and a well-trained, growing labor force.

Phoenix

Phoenix, Arizona and its suburbs make up a large world-class city rising from a desert valley.

Long before the rest of the country was being colonized, native Americans lived at Pueblo Grande from 700 to 1400 A.D. These ‘Hohokam’, meaning the ‘people who have gone’, built 135 miles of canals to irrigate their farming. Modern settlement began in 1868, when a canal was built to bring water from the Salt River. Several names were used before deciding on ‘Phoenix’, symbolizing a new town rising from the ruins of a former civilization.

Incorporated in 1881, Phoenix is young by historical standards but now ranks as one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation. Visitors, residents and businesses will find that Phoenix offers just about everything in the way of sports, recreation, arts, culture, dining, lodging and financial opportunities. Because of our beautiful weather, activities can be enjoyed year-round. Take time to explore the related links on the right for shortcuts to popular topics. Find out for yourself why Phoenix is such a dynamic city.

In 1950, the city had 105,000 people and was 99th in size in the U.S., today it is the 6th largest with over 1.2 million. The metropolitan area, including Scottsdale, Mesa and Tempe, totals over 2.2 million. There is a Spanish and Mexican influence with architecture, dining and culture. The area is one of the world’s top 5 golf destinations and also has many world-class resorts, spas, dining and shopping.

Downtown Phoenix has an Art Museum, Science Museum, the Heard Museum, historic Copper Square, Phoenix Zoo, and Pueblo Grande ruins. Nearby is the Rawhide Western Town, hot-air balloon rides, jeep tours to the desert, horse riding, the Superstition Mountains of the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine fame, golf, night life, and much more.

Houston

Houston

Alive with energy and rich in diversity, Houston is a fantastic mix of CULTURE and HISTORY attractions that are second to none. While it is a leader in the international energy industry, Houston is much more than an oil town. The city is home to the Texas Medical Center, astonishing performing and visual arts and, yep, the world’s largest rodeo. Don’t forget the center for American manned space flight, NASA’s Johnson Space Center. Top-ranked sports teams also call Houston home — the four-time MLB National League Central Division-Champion Astros, the two-time NBA-Champion Rockets, the four-time WNBA-Champion Comets and the American Hockey League’s Houston Aeros, who won the IHL’s 1999 Turner Cup. And in August 2002, the city will welcome the NFL Houston Texans. Yet amid such big city circumstances, Houston’s attitude remains casual and friendly.

Columbus

Columbus

The city of Columbus was founded in 1812 and has served as the state capital since 1816.

The city has gradually grown into the most populous city in the state of Ohio. Helping to facilitate this population growth has been the city’s tremendous land area expansion. Annexation has enabled the city to grow from 39.9 square miles in 1950 to over 212.6 square miles today. Friendly people, eclectic communities, thriving arts, diverse interests, safe streets, clean air and an affordable community supported by a stable economy and solid character!

The essence of Austin emanates from its self-contradictions. Along with its chic sophistication, Austin possesses a laid-back attitude. At the most elegant restaurants in town, diners show up in everything from haute couture to t-shirts and shorts. A mecca for the cultural arts, the city also protects its outdoor treasures such as Barton Springs Pool. In downtown, ultra-modern office towers rise high above century-old historic landmarks. It’s still a small town at heart that has grown into a big city over the past two decades.

NewYorkCity

New York

Welcome to “The Big Apple!” This city, also known as the Capital of the World, contains within its borders close to 7.5 Million residents.

New York is home to many nationally and internationally recognized landmarks and places of interest such as the American Museum of Natural History, the Statue of Liberty, and the Broadway Theater.

What makes New York special is its contagious energy and excitement. At the center of so many industries, New York is truly on the cutting edge of civilization. While other cities are only beginning to shape a skyline, Manhattan has captured the world’s imagination as the most magical exuberating city for centuries. New York City and Broadway are synonymous; maybe that’s why some consider New York to be a spectacular stage set with the world’s most fascinating and colorful actors.

New York is, above all, a walker’s city. Along its busy streets, an endless variety of sights unfolds everywhere you go, and the character of its neighborhoods changes every few blocks. Quaint town houses stand shoulder to shoulder with sleek glass towers, gleaming gourmet supermarkets sit around the corner from dusty thrift shops, and chic bistros inhabit the storefronts of soot-smudged warehouses

In terms of the geography of NYC, it is best to imagine the Greater New York area as a main center island (Manhattan) surrounded by outer islands (the other boroughs):

Queens is located just east of Manhattan.
Brooklyn is situated to the southeast of Manhattan.
Staten Island is located southwest of Manhattan.
The Bronx is located north of Manhattan.
