The Great Outdoors

Start a new adventure by exploring Nashville's great outdoors.

The Great Outdoors

Nashville is known for having temperate weather that allows you to enjoy outdoor activities almost year-round. Music City is beautiful to explore on foot, on two wheels, on a zip line, or the water. Discover the great outdoors or find tickets to outdoor attractions in one easy place.

Parks & Greenways

Nestled in Music City are some awe-inspiring parks, such as Centennial Park and Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, both situated in the heart of the city. The Warner Parks (Percy and Edwin) spread over 2,500 acres of rolling hills, making it perfect for bikers, runners, and walkers, yet just a few miles from downtown. Cheekwood Estate & Gardens, a magnificent 55-acre botanical garden, is located near the Warner Parks. It boasts several styles of flowers and plants, all impeccably maintained throughout the grounds of the Cheekwood Mansion.

In Nashville, there is a 180-mile-long greenway that runs throughout the city, 90 miles of which are off-road trails. The Greenway is a popular destination for cyclists who prefer to avoid riding on busy roads. As most people don't usually travel with their bicycles, you can rent one from Bike the Greenway, a mobile bike rental service. You can also take a guided bike tour with Music City Adventure Co. or rent a Nashville B-cycle from one of the 30+ locations around the town. You can ride the bike for as long as you want and then drop it off at any station. It's an excellent opportunity to explore the city's sights, enjoy the beautiful weather, and even get some exercise at the same time.

Enjoy the natural beauty of Nashville and Middle Tennessee by experiencing some of the best outdoor activities the area has to offer. Whether you're interested in hiking, biking, or just relaxing at a beautiful park with incredible views, find tickets to outdoor attractions in one easy place.
