Looking for the perfect family vacation this summer? There are a variety of activities in Nashville that will entertain both you and your kids. Spend an afternoon with go karts, miniature golf, batting cages and arcade games, make a day out of a trip to the zoo to see all of the fascinating creatures and then enjoy a delicious meal in a unique setting. All of these activities and more are available for you and your family to enjoy during your trip to Music City.
At Europa Go Karts and Golf, you and the kids will always be entertained. With miniature golf, go karts, batting cages and more, there are enough fun activities to spend the day together. Race against each other on the 1,000-yard go kart track. You’ll feel the speed as the wind blows against your face and as you turn the wheel sharply to master all of the twists and turns of the track. The go kart track is the perfect way to get in some friendly competition between your family members, or you can make your way through the obstacles on the miniature golf course. There are two outdoor, 18-hole courses, with streams of water, crashing waterfalls, dark and spooky caves and many other exciting obstacles. Compete against your family to get the best score on these entertaining but challenging courses. There are also batting cages where you can go for a homerun with 12 pitches, and an arcade where you can play some classic and favorite games.
On day two, take a trip to the Nashville Zoo, where animals from across the globe call home. You can meet up with Layla the giraffe, thirty Caribbean flamingos, a Gila monster, gibbons, macaws and many other unique creatures at the zoo. Until July 31, you can also catch up with some of history’s most terrifying species. DinoTrek is an additional part of the Nashville Zoo that is open until the end of July, and allows visitors to explore the world of prehistoric times. As you walk through the jungle, you’ll get the rare opportunity to view the Brachiosaurus, Megalosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Styracosaurus and, of course, the feared Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Finally, both you and the kids will also love dining out at the Hard Rock Cafe. This unique restaurant is filled with musical memorabilia, including clothing from popular artists across all genres, such as Garth Brooks, Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson and more. Dine inside with all of the fantastic and rare artifacts, or enjoy the nice weather and eat outside on the patio. The Hard Rock Cafe offers you a great meal, every time you visit. Enjoy the Hard Rock Cheeseburger (and don’t forget to add some bacon to it), or the popular Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken Sandwich or Bar-B-Que Pork Sandwich. With a variety of delicious entrees, side dishes and desserts to choose from, the Hard Rock Cafe offers the perfect place for the family to eat out.
Want to get in some tours while visiting? There are also a variety of options that even your kids will love. The Homes of the Stars Tour will take you on a trip to some of the residences of your favorite artists. The kids will love the opportunity to see the homes of Taylor Swift, Dierks Bentley, members of Lady Antebellum and more, while you will love seeing those of Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Ronnie Dunn and others. The tour also gives you the chance to see some of the greatest landmarks in the city, including the Tennessee State Capital. The Music City Trolley Hop is another great tour option for the family, as it mixes in history, culture and music all in one tour.
Cut out travel time and stay nearby all of the top attractions in the city. The Best Western Belle Meade Inn and the Comfort Inn are both within three and a half miles of Europa, while the Best Western Brentwood Inn & Suites and Hampton Inn & Suites Nashville-Green Hills are nearby the zoo. Walk to dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe when you stay at Hilton Nashville Downtown or Double Tree Hotel Nashville-Downtown, both just down the street.
Spend some time with your family this summer, and make a trip to Nashville. All of these exciting activities, and more, are available for your enjoyment. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to get in some incredible family time and make memories you’ll remember forever.
