Nashville

About

Many music fans have made the pilgrimage to Music City, and there is plenty to see at the Grand Ole Opry House, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and Music Row. But that's not all Nashville, TN has to offer - Nashville's remarkable past makes it a diverse city sure to delight everyone. Revisit historical Nashville at plantations like Travellers Rest, built on a Native American graveyard, or at the Hermitage, home of President Andrew Jackson. The Wild West comes alive at A Cowboy Town, where you can witness a gunfight and experience life as a cowpoke. Nashville is also home to a full-scale reproduction of the Greek Parthenon and a Dukes of Hazzard museum and store (appropriately named Cooter's Place). There are a lot of free things to do in Nashville, including Hatch Show Print, one of the oldest letterpress poster shops in the U.S. It uses 15th century techniques to produce posters for the Grand Ole Opry. Another option is a tour of the Jack Daniel Distillery, where visitors can watch the whisky-making process. If you're looking for Nashville nightlife, Elliston Place is a hip neighborhood home to loud nightclubs, laidback bars, and tasty cafes. Serious shoppers will want to head to Green Hills and its stylish boutiques and upscale mall featuring designer labels. Nashville International Airport has expanded considerably since the 340 acre airfield opened in 1937. It now includes more than 4,500 acres and serves more than 80 different markets, so finding flights to Nashville should be easy.

When To Go

Nashville has four distinct seasons filled with festivals and outdoor activities. The most popular time to visit is during the summer and holiday season, when schools are on break and families are on vacation. Autumn, when the leaves change and the weather is mild, can also be a busy time. Spring brings pleasant temperatures, colorful gardens, and several major annual events. Winter is the slowest time due to cooler weather, but shopping and holiday events during the Christmas season are a big draw.

high season: April to mid--August, October to December
low season: January to March, mid-August to September

Weather Information

Nashville experiences temperate weather throughout its four seasons. Summers can be warm and sunny with average highs in the upper 80s. While the leaves are changing in October, temperatures cool down to an average high of 71 degrees. January can be mild and cold, with an average high of 46 degrees. Snow can occur sporadically throughout the winter season, with the most falling in the coldest months of January and February.

Crowd Information

The largest crowds show up from mid-spring to mid-summer with events such as Awesome April and the Country Music Marathon in April, the CMA Music Festival in June, and Fourth of July celebrations. December can also be a pretty busy time with shopping, holiday gatherings, and special events. January through March are less crowded months due to cooler temperatures and fewer major events.

Closure Information

Some attractions may close for major holidays, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.

When to Save

Prices rarely fluctuate throughout the year, but hotels tend to be a little less expensive during the low season and slightly more expensive during the summer and holiday months.
