School just started, so we can\u2019t possibly talking Fall Break already. Right? Wrong. Fall break will be here before you know it and that means it\u2019s time to start planning. How about loading up the car for a trip down south to Music City? That\u2019s right ya\u2019ll - Nashville, Tennessee. In less than five hours, you and your family can be surrounded by the rolling hills, eating hot chicken and enjoying some honky tonk. All at the same time. If that sounds appealing to you, then you will definitely want to check out Indy\u2019s Child\u2019s list of the top things to do in Nashville, Tennessee. 1. Put on your boots, head downtown and enjoy some honky tonk Remember the movie\u00a0Sweet Home Alabama, when Reese Witherspoon looks at her friend and says, \u201cLook at you! You have a baby\u2026\u2026in a bar?\u201d In Nashville, as crazy as it may seem (up until a certain hour in the evening), you most definitely can bring your baby to a bar. Be sure to check out\u00a0The Wildhorse Saloon. Why? For one, on most days they have free line dancing lessons every hour on the hour, available for people of all ages. Secondly, they have pool tables, shuffleboard and foosball. Want to save some money? If you arrive early in the day for your stamp - you can come back later in the evening when they are charging a cover and get in for free. *A little tip for those of you heading downtown. On most days, you can park for free in the R Lot at the\u00a0Nissan Stadium\u00a0and walk across the Pedestrian Bridge to downtown. It\u2019s a beautiful view and again\u2026..FREE 2. Learn about the history of country music at\u00a0The Country Music Hall of Fame Even if you aren\u2019t a huge country music fan, this is still a cool museum to explore. It isn\u2019t very big, so it won\u2019t take up too much of your day. They have a scavenger hunt that will keep the little ones occupied and engaged. Be sure to check out the Taylor Swift tour bus upstairs. On the bus, you can pretend like you\u2019re a Nashville musician recording one of your latest hits. 3. Parks, parks and more parks Nashville is not lacking in amazing green space for families to explore. There are trails for hiking, lakes for fishing, water features, rock climbing walls, playgrounds and much more.
