We made a weekend adventure to Nashville. Got to spend some awesome quality time with my brother, sister-in-law & nephew in Music City. There are so many things to see and do. Much to my surprise, most things that we encountered were really kid friendly. It’s also quite fitting that we take our little ones, as they ARE all named after country music artists. Here’s a few things we found around town:
We stumbled upon Drifters for dinner after we learned of a 1.5 hour wait at our Plan A dinner joint. The corn dogs were THE BEST we’ve ever had!
A few doors down was The Soda Parlor with some very unique & fun ice cream options. Plus, they have a wall of FREE PLAY arcade games, that’s a win!
The next morning we headed to The Gaylord Opryland Hotel to scope out the beautiful indoor gardens. Don’t bother paying the $30 parking fee to get in though. You can park in the FREE Opry Mills Mall IMAX lot and utilize the walkway to get to the hotel AND The Grand Ole Opry if you choose.
Afternoon was a good time to move on to something a little slower. So we headed to Arrington Vineyards, which was the most picturesque winery we’ve been too. We also learned that Kix Brooks is one of the three owners. It was VERY kid friendly, with lots of places to roam, relax and listen to live music.
Our next stop was Hatti B’s for some hot chicken. It was hot and delicious, thats for sure!
Our final stop for the day was Centennial Park where they had live music, free dance lessons, an ice cream truck, this HUGE train and the iconic Parthenon. Lots more to see than we could even explore there!
The Ryman Auditorium was on our list, but not budget friendly for a family of six. Plus, our kids are little, and not sure they’d fully appreciate the value of their ticket, so for now just a pic!
We had a wonderful time spending time with people we love. As always, exploring cities is our jam, so we plan to return. Theres so much to see, food to eat and sights to enjoy. We’ll be back Nashville.
