Let’s cut right to the chase. This isn’t a post detailing all the fun ways to experience Nashville with children. It probably should be titled “How NOT to Spend One Day in Nashville With Children.” My 8-year-old son is a typical kid, but he also has a lot of things in common with men three times his age. He is OK sitting in bars, he loves attending sporting events and he demands a table in a restaurant closer to the televised basketball game. If you’re visiting Nashville with children, consider learning a few lessons of how best to map out your own trip.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned as a traveler, it’s that the best experiences aren’t planned. Lance and I recently took a quick trip to Nashville, and during our one-night stay we met some awesome people and I fell in love … with a table.
On a recent stay in Tennessee’s capital city for work, we were only going to be in the city for one night. So our Nashville hotel didn’t need to be anything too fancy. It needed to be close to the city center and not too expensive. We found that and more with the newest suites concept from Hilton with the Home2 Suites by Hilton Nashville Vanderbilt, located near Vanderbilt University and close to all of Downtown Nashville’s action.
