Family Fun in Nashville, Tennessee

Visit Nashville, Tennessee, for family-filled fun. Music City’s family-friendly offerings run the gamut and will give everyone something to sing about — from music, art and history, to food, sports and fashion.

Make Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center home base, as its suites easily and comfortably accommodate families up to six. The resort offers an on-site waterpark and several kid-friendly pools, and almost 20 different eateries that will ensure everyone in your family is satisfied. Other kid-friendly hotel options include Omni Nashville Hotel, Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, The Westin Nashville and Hutton Hotel.

Cuisine is a highlight of any trip to Nashville, and nearly all of the city’s restaurants welcome families. Some recommended family-friendly dining options include Acme Feed & Seed, Martin’s Bar-B-Que, Elliston Place Soda Shop, Wildhorse Saloon, Jasper’s, Assembly Food Hall and Biscuit Love.

Pro tip: Consider Nashville’s Total Access Pass, featuring the city’s most popular attractions and tours bundled together with exclusive discount offers. If your family visits four or more of the more than 30 included attractions, receive free admission to two bonus attractions.


Day 1 Early morning arrival and a day exploring Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center
Day 2 Visit the Nashville Zoo in the morning before a sweet afternoon visit to Goo Goo Chocolate Co., followed by a family face-off at Game Terminal or Pins Mechanical
Day 3 Visit the Adventure Science Center in the morning, followed by an afternoon at The Adventure Park at Nashville and Cumberland Caves, before an evening cruise on the General Jackson Showboat
Day 4 Enjoy a leisurely morning at Madame Tussaud’s Nashville and a last-minute meal before an afternoon departure

Highlights of the trip

  • Visit Soundwaves, a premier aquatic attraction
  • Make your own candy bar at Goo Goo Chocolate Co.
  • Watch science come alive at Adventure Science Center
  • Set sail down the Cumberland River

Day 1

Arrive early and check in to Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center. Rather than rushing the family right out the door, use this time to explore your home away from home, including SoundWaves, an aquatic attraction; nine indoor garden atriums; Grand Ole Opry; Delta Riverboat Tours; and so much more!

Day 2

On day two, spend the morning visiting the animals at the Nashville Zoo. Check to see what events are happening on the day of your visit or book a Backstage Pass to get behind-the-scenes access to the animals. During the afternoon, satisfy your sweet tooth with a visit to Goo Goo Chocolate Co., home of the first combination candy bar, where guests can enjoy a one-of-a-kind candy making experience with the store’s interactive stations. Add a competitive edge to your evening with duckpin bowling at Pins Mechanical; game play at Game Terminal, boasting one of the largest selections of arcade games and pinball machines in the United States; or both.

Day 3

Start day three and watch science come to life in more than 15,000 square feet of exhibit space at Adventure Science Center. Spend the afternoon zip lining as a family at The Adventure Park at Nashville. Later, enjoy a leisurely, 1.5-hour walking tour at Cumberland Caverns, going 333 feet underground. End the evening cruising with dinner to see the “Rollin’ on the River” show on the General Jackson Showboat to round out the day.

Day 4

Before heading for home, get up close and personal with some of music’s biggest legends with a fun visit to Madame Tussauds Nashville. If you haven’t had time to try hot chicken, end your trip with a visit to Hattie B’s before you hit the road.
