We may not have the sand and the sea in Music City (my only beef with Nashville) but we have everything else you need for a perfect spring break staycation. Bonus: Save a little moo-la.
Here’s the deal. Nashville is jam-packed with family fun but life just gets busy and locals get stuck in their daily routines of school, work, eat, sleep, repeat. So – here are 5 reasons to be a tourist in your own city this spring break.
It’s the prettiest time of year at Cheekwood! Cheekwood in Bloom kicks off this Saturday and runs through April 7th. More than 150,000 blooming bulbs are brightening up the Cheekwood grounds just begging you to be Instagrammed. Cheekwood in Bloom will also bring five weekends of family fun from activities to entertainment.
2. Grand Ole Opry
If you live in Nashville and haven’t been to the Grand Ole Opry.. Bless. Now seriously, drop everything, buy tickets and go. There’s nothing more Nashville and the line-up is always mind-blowing! To give you an idea of who you’ll see in that famous circle, here are just a few artists performing this weekend: Darius Rucker, Ricky Skaggs, Josh Turner, Crystal Gayle, and Charles Esten.
3. House of Cards
One of Nashville’s newest places for a night of entertainment. It also happens to be one of the most unique experiences in town. We can’t give it all away but your night begins via a secret tunnel into a magical world of well.. magic.
4. Plaza Mariachi
Take your family to Plaza Mariachi for the ultimate cultural experience in Nashville! The sights, sounds, and smells will have you feeling like you’re in old Mexico. Enjoy Latin culture, art, music, entertainment and food all in one place – fun for the whole family!
5. Radnor Lake
Radnor Lake is a total gem. An oasis just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Green Hills. The natural park has more than six miles of trails that are strictly used for hiking and observing wildlife – no jogging, fishing or walking pets. A perfect place to breathe in fresh air and get some exercise with your family.
