A: Nashville is full of fun things to do with kids!

Here’s a short list of places kids love to visit in Nashville, from one mom to another.

I’ve included links, suggestions, and videos to make planning a fun summer vacation even easier!

If you visit Nashville from June to September, make sure your hotel has a pool!

Our summers are hot and humid.

There’s no better way for kids to unwind than splashing around in an outdoor pool.

Staying with family?  Hotel pool under construction? Here’s a list of all the fun places to swim in Nashville.

Plan an entire morning (plus a picnic lunch) at the Nashville Zoo.  It’s a fun place to take visitors of all ages!


Do some kid-friendly shoppertainment at Opry Mills Mall and the Opryland Hotel complex.

Here’s a cool video showing the Aquarium Restaurant’s fish tank and sting ray feeding exhibit:

Take the kids downtown for Nashville history…and fun!

See why everyone loves visiting the Bicentennial Mall downtown!
