Winter Activities in Nashville

I recently graduated from Penn State University; which means for the past 4 winters I have had to endure bitter, cold days walking through inches of snow to my classes. This is my first year in the south getting to enjoy this fabulous change of temperature. Luckily for us it has been warmer than usual and we have had the chance to spend a lot of time outdoors during November and December. While spending the day on a boat at Percy Priest Lake or enjoying the pool at Wave Country is out of the question there is still a large number of activities we have been able to partake in on these beautiful days. Check out a few of my favorite spots to spend time around Nashville during the winter months.

Adventureworks

Great for any group size, Adventureworks is the spot to be if you are trying to escape the city for a few hours. With two locations in the Nashville Area (Kingston Springs and Fontanel)  you can enjoy the day through the woods on their 9 different zip lines or on the 25-element treetop challenge course.”Their slogan, Do Good. Work Smart. Live Well. Laugh Often. says it all! Come join us at Music City Zips” Adventureworks zip line instructor, Amanda Wallach told The Southern  Wave. http://www.adventureworks.com/\

Edwin Warner Park &  Percy Warner Park 

The holiday seasons creeps up on a lot of us and we get in a rut of not wanting to consistently work out. Edwin Warner and Percy Warner Park make hiking, jogging, and biking a little more enjoyable with great views and even better trails. http://www.nashville.gov/parks-and-recreation/parks/warner-parks.aspx

Radnor Lake

If you are looking for a places to take the dogs or work off a little steam after a long day of work, Radnor Lake  is a great trail for any age. It is free to park and the trail length is just the right distance to get in a solid workout. Chat with friends or enjoy a nice walk with nature. http://radnorlake.org/

Grand Old Golf and GoKarts 

You are never too old to play like a kid! Grand Old Golf and GoKarts is a playground great for all ages. Spend time racing friends on the GoKarts or kicking butt on the greens during mini golf. GoKart rates range from $8 to $10 and there are 4 courses to pick from for mini golf, ranging from $9 to $20. http://www.grandoldgolf.net/

Nashville Zoo

Spend the afternoon with animals from all over the world. The Nashville Zoo is a great destination for couples, families, and groups of friends. Parking is $5, adult tickets are $15, and children tickets are just $10 so grab a snack and explore the majestic park!  https://www.nashvillezoo.org/
