10 Things To Do with the Kids during Fall Break in Nashville and Middle Tennessee

For most of Middle Tennessee, a Fall Break from school is rapidly approaching.  Here are a few ideas on ways to entertain your family during the break.

  1. Take a trip to Lucky Ladd Farms.  Depending on where you live, it may be a bit of a drive but it’s worth it.  Kids under 12 will love it.
  2. Play some Miniature Golf. Head to Grand Ole Golf, Soar Adventure Tower, Go USA Fun Park.
  3. Get the kids moving! Plan a day at Smyrna Skate Center , Brentwood Skate Center or Rivergate Skate Center. Special fall break ‘open skate’ times are usually available in addition to regular hours. Check their websites for more information.
  4. Sneak a history lesson into the school break. Visit a historic home in Middle Tennessee. 
  5. Up for a Road Trip? The fall foliage on the drive to Chattanooga, TN is spectacular this time of year. Visit the Tennessee State Aquarium while you are there.
  6. How about riding the rails?  Take a trip to Downtown Nashville on the Music City Star.  Explore the area during kid-friendly daylight hours and grab an ice cream cone for the trip home!
  7. Are the kids driving you crazy?  Take them to our newest trampoline parks, Altitude or Urban Air.  They will be super tired after jumping for an afternoon.
  8. Visit a state park. Long Hunter State Park and Bledsoe Creek State Park offer lots of fall fun including hiking, fishing, nature activities and more!
  9. If you have a free Monday or Wednesday, take the kids to Hendersonville Family Fun Center and Circus World. Armbands are under $12 per child on those days.  You can bowl, roller skate, play laser tag and a whole bunch more.
  10. See the scarecrows, fall flowers and the pumpkin house at Cheekwood Harvest. Go on a weekday and avoid the crowds. Wear your fall best and take a bunch of photos.
