10 Fun Things To Do For Father’s Day In Nashville

#1 – Feed his inner carnivore, preferably with steak or BBQ. Here are a few great meat-eatin’ Nashville restaurants for memorable Father’s Day meals.

#2 – Whatever floats his boat! Take Dad for a relaxing day on the water. We have a terrific list of boat rentals and canoes in Middle Tennessee.

#3 – Dust off his golf clubs and invite him to Harpeth Hills Golf Course at Percy Warner Park. Gift certificates are now on sale at all Metro Nashville’s public golf courses!

#4 – Celebrate his big catch. Here are all our articles on fly fishing rivers near Brentwood and Middle Tennessee, along with information about local fly shops, two Nashville fly fishing clubs, and our pick for the best Tennessee trout water guidebook.


#5 – Go ahead, make his day! Let him blow off some steam at a nearby gun range. We have details on indoor and outdoor firing ranges in Nashville.

#6 – Pimp his ride with a car detailing at Smith Brothers Car Wash. Follow with a visit to Nashville’s Lane Motor Museum, where dads get in FREE every Father’s Day.

Here’s my personal review of the Lane Motor Museum, which even I (a total non-car-lover) loved!

#7 – Treat him to a FREE outdoor concert at Brentwood’s Crockett Park amphitheater. Or, wind up the mountain for a Bluebird Cafe-style concert at Brentwood’s Dyer Observatory.

#8 – Plan the ultimate camping trip using these handy camping tips. Don’t forget, Brentwood’s ultimate man store, REI is right around the corner! Did you know REI lets you rent outdoor equipment before you buy?


#9 – Hit the historic Civil War trail, starting at Nashville’s newly restored Fort Negley and heading south to Franklin. (Download a Civil War map or pick up a free copy at Visitor centers.) The Battle of Nashville Preservation Society sells a comprehensive book with photographs and driving directions for 25 historic sites in Nashville.

#10 – Let him bask in the sun at one of Nashville’s swimming pools or beaches. Surprise him with a new pair of sunglasses, a fluffy blue beach towel and a cooler of icy cold drinks. Aaaah.
