Looking for a beach vacation alternative? Hit Music City for a unique spring break filled with terrific food, music, and nightlife. Here are some of the best things to do while visiting Nashville:
Did you know that Nashville has its very own Parthenon? It is a full-scale replica of the one in Greece and it is smack in the middle of Centennial Park, complete with a museum. This large park is a great place to have a picnic and for spending a sunny afternoon playing with friends.
Cheekwood in Bloom
Every spring, the Cheekwood Estate & Gardens comes alive with thousands of multicolored flowers that you have to see to believe, including daffodils and tulips. Not only can you take a tour of the grounds, but on the weekends you can enjoy their beer garden, which also offers a number of terrific food trucks.
The Treetop Adventure Park
If you are looking for a little more action this spring, you should check out this aerial adventure course. There, within the woods of the Nashville Shores Lakeside Resort, you will find 100 obstacles to overcome, including zip lines, suspended bridges, cargo nets, ladders and Tarzan jumps.
Outdoor Dining Patios
Outdoor dining, also known as al fresco dining, is a specialty in Nashville, especially for brunch. Many fine restaurants in the city, including Acme Feed & Seed, M.L.Rose and The Southern Steak & Oyster have terrific patios, where you can enjoy both the weather and the wonderful food.
If you love Southern food, Nashville will not disappoint you. There are lots of terrific Southern restaurants there, such as Pepperfire Hot Chicken, Burger Up and Edley’s BBQ. If you are looking for something a little different, you can also try one of the fine restaurants in Germantown.
Nashville is not called Music City for nothing. There are in excess of 180 great places to enjoy live music at night in the city, including the Bluebird Cafe, 3rd & Lindsley, Exit/In, the Mercy Lounge and Station Inn.
If you are looking for a way to cleanse your body and soul after a night of partying and fun, you should check out Shenanigoats Yoga. This morning outdoor yoga spot is not your typical yoga workout, as you get to spend it with friendly and cuddly goats. It is an hour you will never forget.
