It’s summer time and we gratefully say hello to the much-needed sunshine. But many people are looking to beat the heat and get out to have some fun with friends and family. We think Nashville is a great place to load up on fun and entertainment. Whether you’re into classical music, beautiful nature, historic buildings or running into your favorite celebrity (kind of), Nashville has the goods.
Here are some of the best things to do for Summer 2021 in Nashville.
Formerly the site of the state fair and then the World’s Fair, Centennial Park is not only a beautiful place to relax in the sun but is also home to a full-scale replica of the Greek temple, The Parthenon.
The architecture is exquisite and the building itself is surely one of a kind in the US.
The park is also home to some great wartime memorabilia and loads of cultural events. Be sure to check this one out.
Belle Meade Historic Site
Belle Meade is a fantastic place to take some time away from the daily grind and soak up some Tennessee history. Patrons are treated to an incredible tour of the Belle Meade mansion where they learn about its history and the families that called it home.
