Summer Fun in Nashville

June 17, 2022

Looking for some budget-friendly activities to do this summer in Nashville? We’ve got you covered. Read on for some low-budget fun you can have with friends or with family!  

#1 Tennessee State Museum  

The Tennessee State Museum is a day trip that is suitable for the whole family. It offers free admission and has plenty of different exhibits to browse. It houses historical artifacts like a 3,500-year-old mummy and Andrew Jackson’s top hat! Some of the exhibits are subject to change, but the permanent exhibits focus on the state’s history like the Civil War and Andrew Jackson’s influence.  

#2 Cooter’s Place  

Calling all Dukes of Hazzard fans! Take a trip to Cooter’s place and take pictures with a replica of the infamous 1969 orange Dodge Charger. Ben Jones (the actor who played Cooter in the show) and his wife are the proprietors of all Cooter’s locations, and they invite guests to browse memorabilia from the show and Dukes of Hazzard merchandise. Make sure to pick up a souvenir for the road!  

#3 Warner Parks  

Edwin Warner Park and Percy Warner Park are two of Nashville’s premier public parks. Boasting over 3.1 acres, there’s no shortage of adventure to be found here. There are all sorts of fun activities to do here with your family and dog! Have fun at the dog park, take the family on the hiking or biking trails, take a trip to the equestrian center, or learn about some plants at the nature center. It’s great for a free day of fun with the whole family—make sure to bring some beverages and snacks!  

#4 Music City Walk of Fame & Nashville Music Garden 

Nashville and music go hand-in-hand. Walk down 4th Ave S Street and take a gander at all the sidewalk stars! See stars from big names in the industry like Jimi Hendrix, Reba McIntire, Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Wynonna Judd, and more. Take pictures with some of your favorite musicians’ stars for memorabilia.  

While you’re walking the block, consider stopping by the Nashville Music Garden. The garden boasts a 2,700-square-foot flower and plant collection that honor the musicians who’ve played a large role in the development of the music industry.  

#5 Arrington Vineyards 

The Arrington Vineyards is a 40-minute drive south of Nashville, but it is well worth the trip! Every weekend you can catch the free admission and first come, first served “Music in the Vines.” Is there anything better than tasting some award-winning wine while listening to live jazz and bluegrass music? Enjoy some food from Simply Living Life and spend the weekend like Dionysus.  

#6 Your Very Own Beer Crawl 

You can create your own beer crawl with Music City Brew Hop. Brew Hop is a public service that operates on an hour-long loop around the city and makes stops at some of Nashville’s finest craft beer breweries. Unlike some transportation, you won’t be added to a list of “overserved,” and you’ll be able to hop on and off the bus all day for the price of one ticket. The bus avoids the high-traffic downtown areas, so you’ll be able to see more of the charm Nashville has to offer.
