Downtown Nashville Hotel for Summer Activities

Join us here at The Union Station Nashville Yards for luxury boutique accommodations in the heart of Music City this summer. Nashville’s a wonderful place to visit during those long summer days—and those long, exciting, tuneful nights!

Here’s a sweeping (and far-from-exhaustive) overview of just some of the fun to be had in Nashville during the summertime, calling one of the city’s signature historical landmarks—and standout hotels—your home away from home in the process!

Summer Outdoor Activities In & Around Nashville

All that sunshine and those deliciously warm temperatures encourage soaking up plenty of fresh air on a Nashville getaway. Walk, jog, or bike the paths and trails of the Cumberland River Greenway, Shelby Bottoms Greenway & Natural Area, and other parklands right in town, or check out spots such as Old Hickory Lake and Radnor Lake State Park right on the city’s doorstep.

If you’ve got the urge for a farther-ranging day trip, consider such amazing regional outdoor destinations Cumberland Caverns—the biggest show cave in Tennessee—or the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. Not far from the city, you can enjoy some rural loveliness in Johnny Cash’s very own sanctuary, Storytellers Hideaway Farm & Museum, where the Man in Back savored peace and quiet.

Meanwhile, you’ve got no shortage of nearby golf courses to enjoy on a summertime visit to The Union Station Nashville Yards. And then there’s all the boating available right in the city on the Cumberland River!

Summer Family Fun in Nashville

Besides all the aforementioned hiking, biking, watersports, and other outdoor activities, kids will have plenty of delight on a Nashville summer trip. Explore the ropes course and ziplines of Adventure Park at Nashville, get wet at Gaylord Opryland’s SoundWaves, or become acquainted with the many varied critters, large and small, which call the Nashville Zoo home.

Other Nashville Activities to Enjoy This Summer

Naturally, you’ll be spoiled for choices when it comes to live music: Nashville’s one of the best places in the world for the thing! From the famous Broadway honky tonks and iconic venues such as the Grand Ole Opry House, the Ryman Auditorium, and the Tennessee Performing Arts Center to plentiful outdoor concerts, you’ll be up to your ears in fabulous music this summer.

You’ll also have a great option for taking in America’s pastime under the summer skies: Catch a baseball game at First Horizon Park, home to the Nashville Sounds, our very own Minor League team (and AAA affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers).

Summer’s the perfect time, too, to avail yourself of one of the many sightseeing tours offered in Nashville, during which you can get to know the city’s history, architecture, and (of course) musical heritage. And by the way: Nashville ghost tours aren’t just a Halloween time affair…
