What to Do in Nashville in the Summer

You can’t visit Nashville without experiencing the incredible live music scene. From quintessential honky-tonk bars on Broadway to big-name concerts and intimate listening rooms, there are tons of music venues to explore. The Ryman Auditorium and Grand Ole Opry are absolute musts for getting a taste of Nashville’s deep musical roots. 

On hot summer days, spend some time exploring Nashville’s top outdoor attractions like Centennial Park, Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, and the pedestrian bridge over the Cumberland River. Don’t miss getting your photo op at Some of Nashville’s most iconic murals.

After exploring the city, refuel with a delicious meal. Indulge in Nashville’s legendary hot chicken at places like Prince’s Hot Chicken or Hattie B’s, but be warned, you’re in store for some serious heat. On nice days, sit out on one of the many outdoor patios and rooftop bars; Nashville’s impressive outdoor dining scene offers a variety of cuisines and atmospheres.

What to Pack

Nashville’s summer days are hot and humid. Daily high temperatures in summer in Nashville average 85 degrees, so light, breathable clothing is a must. Comfortable walking shoes are also key; Nashville is a very walkable city, and you’ll want to take advantage. Nashville has a hip, fashionable spirit, so don’t be afraid to go bold and have fun getting dressed up for evenings out on the town. And, of course, no summertime packing list would be complete without sunscreen and a great pair of sunglasses.
