What to Do in Nashville with Your Kids This Summer

  1. Nicole Midgley says:

    Go to the splash pad in Smyrna. It’s free. It’s in a pretty park which is nice too.

  2. Nicole Midgley says:

    Go to the indoor pool at the Patterson Park Community Center in Murfreesboro. There’s a play area with fountains for smaller kids, a huge slide for older kids and adults, and most importantly your fair-skinned little ones won’t get sunburned!

      Nice! The Bellevue YMCA has a great indoor pool with fountains and water slides, too. 🙂

    What a fantastic list! Might I also suggest the Family-friendly and lots of fun–Shakespeare in the Park: AS YOU LIKE IT August 14-September 14, Thursday through Sunday nights plus Labor Day Monday in Centennial Park. No admission charge, $10 suggested donation. Bring a picnic, the dog, and your dancing shoes, because the cast will invite the audience to a hoedown/sing along as part of the show.

    Thanks for including The Nashville Zoo!

  7. Edward Bach says:

    Thanks for putting this list together! Great recommendations.

  8. Valeria Lewis Rucker says:

    I love this list! A suggestion, it’s a bit pricey, zip lining at Adventure Works in Kingston Springs. You can find deals on Groupon occasionally. It’s worth it though.

  9. Carol Coker says:

    Ava’s Splash Pad in Charlie Daniel’s Park in Mount Juliet. Also, the Don Fox Community Park in Lebanon has a toddler pool.

  10. Carol Coker says:

    Also, the state parks are a lot of fun and there are several reasonably close by.

  11. Brenda B says:

    Bowie Park is in Fairview

  13. Cierese says:

    Thanks for posting this great list!

  14. Allison G says:

    Great list, thanks! Another idea would be a factory tour of Olive & Sinclair chocolate, made locally. They are offered on Saturdays, I think it’s only $5

  15. Laura Buchanan Wood says:

    This is a great list that all 3 of my kids would seem to enjoy. Which is hard because their ages are 5,11 and 15.

  16. Anne-Marie says:

    Carmike (Bellevue and Franklin) also has a good cheap summer movie morning deal for second run kids’ movies. $4 for admission, popcorn, soda, and fruit snack.

  17. lisa huffman says:

    for many many years our family has enjoyed the little drive to Etheridge to visit the Amish and always come home with lots of fresh goodies ……plus gives the kids a different outlook on life!!!We love it !!!!! 🙂

  18. Brenda says:

    Definitely check out Sugar Dive in Green Hills (www.sugardive.com) – it’s my new go-to for a fun afternoon treat, and the kids always love it!!

  19. Arlene Spence says:

    I am looking for more information about the International Mud Day, and a fishing expedition. Do you by chance have the link?

  20. Rachel Connor says:
