  1. My friend just went on a road trip to Nashville with her three kids, and they had a blast. This looks like a lot of fun – so many neat places to check out!

  2. Nashville is such a fun place to visit. There are endless places to go and experience. If you’re a music lover, it’s even better.

  3. This is perfect timing. We have never been to Nashville before but will be visiting in June. I can’t wait to visit some (or maybe all) of these places when we are there! 🙂

  4. Nashville has such a great reputation for music so it was so nice to know that kids will also love this city. My son is into theatre so it would be great for him to see this children’s theatre.

  5. I have been to Nashville but have never visited the zoo or the science center. Both are great suggestions! And then after that eating hot chicken will be a must for me too.
