Nashville Tennessee Vacation Travel

More About Nashville - Editor's Tips - Weather Maps & Dining

When to go?
Nashville's busiest tourist and travel season is during the summer months, when national acts and local favorites play music festivals (country, pop, jazz, etc.) on an almost weekly basis. The summers are hot, and routinely hit 100 degrees in temperature and percent in humidity. The April-May and September-October shoulder seasons have mild days and nights and just as much family fun as the crowded, sweltering summer.

Where to stay?
Vacation travelers have plenty of hotels to choose from in the heart of downtown Nashville, known as "The District." Hotels and motels in The District boast easy access to nightlife, convention centers, and business districts, plus they're not far from the famed Music Row. To see the other side of Nashville, stay in a bungalow in the 12th South neighborhood, where you'll mingle with the young, hip, local crowd. You'll need a car, even with the fun of river taxis.

What to do?
Nashville's most famous landmark is the Ryman Auditorium, home of the Grand Ole Opry. The radio broadcast moves between Ryman and the newer Grand Ole Opry House, so be sure to check which venue you want to attend. See the full-size replica of the Parthenon in Centennial Park. Historical destinations include the Hermitage, Belle Meade Plantation, and Travelers' Rest. Take a day trip into the Cumberland Mountains, to Loretta Lynn's Ranch or follow the 90-mile Tennessee Antebellum Trail.
