Travel: Family Fun in Nashville

Music City is known for live entertainment, but it also offers plenty for families.

Most people consider Nashville an adult destination, so it might surprise parents to discover that Music City actually makes for a great family vacation. From public parks and sporting events to museums, gardens, water parks and well-known music experiences such as the Grand Ole Opry, Nashville is not only a fun family trip but an educational one, too.

You can easily plan a five-day Nashville vacation from Columbus. Plan for a day of travel to and from to accommodate the six-hour drive, with time to stop for food, restroom breaks and stretching your legs. That allows three full days in the city, which is plenty of time to see some of the major highlights. Book a last-minute spring break trip, or plan ahead for summer vacation.
