Appropriately nicknamed “Music City,” Nashville is one of the most popular travel destinations in the US – if you’re trying to have a good time on a budget, that is. It’s synonymous with bachelor and bachelorette parties, throwin’ back Tennessee whiskey, bar-hopping on Broadway, and mega-popular country music concerts and festivals. With its rather lively reputation, it’s easy to assume that Nashville isn’t exactly family-friendly.
But if you look beyond the neon lights and colorful nightlife, there are actually tons of excellent things to do in Nashville with kids. From interactive museums and outdoor activities to professional sports games and a surprisingly great food scene – plus a healthy dose of southern hospitality and extremely friendliness toward cute kiddos – there’s a lot more to Nashville for families than what you see downtown on Saturday nights.
