Nashville is full of many great parks, but some of the best parks don't provide picnic areas, playgrounds or anything you'll find in a regular park. Some of the best parks throughout Nashville are Theme and Amusement Parks. If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, here are a few great places for family fun.
It's a little bit of a drive from Nashville (about 3 hours and 45 minutes), but Dollywood is one of the most well known attractions in the entire state. This amusement park is found near the most scenic acres of the state and features over 40 different rides, a water park and so much more. It's found in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Beech Bend Park & Splash Lagoon
Found much closer to Nashville, but not in Tennessee, Beech Bend provides all kinds of fun. This is the closest of the theme parks to the city, found in Bowling Green, Kentucky and will only take a little over an hour to get to your destination. This park is locally owned and provides all kinds of fun with 40 rides, including four roller coasters, a water park and much more. There's even an on-site campground if you want to make a weekend of it.
Found in Huntsville, Alabama, about 2 hours and 15 minutes from Nashville, this water park is known as one of the best. With many carnival games and rides, you can have plenty of fun with the family. Of course, if you plan to travel here, you might as well stay in Huntsville and enjoy the rest of the area.
Another park found a little over two hours from Nashville, Lake Winnepesaukah provides three roller coasters, a carousel, paddleboats and more. This is an older park, originally opened in 1925. They still provide an old-time feel perfect for families. It's found just past Chattanooga in Rossville, Georgia.
