The cooler season is closing in, but there’s still time to enjoy Nashville before winter begins. And for a little extra help getting you motivated to get outside and enjoy what's left of the warmer weather, here are a few quick ideas to get you off to a good start:
There are plenty of outdoor festivals gearing up for the fall season, including the Cheekwood Harvest through late October, the Green Door Gourmet’s Fall Fest the first part of October and German beer, music, food and polka dancing at Nashville Oktoberfest, the first weekend of the month.
The fall season is also a great time to get out and enjoy one of the city’s many parks. No longer dealing with the worry of high temperatures, Shelby Bottoms Park is full of trails, ideal for running, biking and hiking. There’s also a unique play area at downtown’s Cumberland Park and the all the fun of local favorite, Dragon Park.
Take a ride
For a peaceful time on two wheels, grab your bike and head out on one of the greenway trails. The mostly paved ride is easy enough for beginners, plus a great way to experience the city in a new way. You can rent your bike or bring your own, plus you set the pace of your own day of fun in Nashville.
