The capital of both Tennessee and of country music, Nashville is enjoying a second golden age and is quickly becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in America’s south. It might have a reputation of being all about music, but there are activities and venues for you and your canine companion to check out as well. Make your reservation at one of the pet-friendly hotels in Nashville listed below so you can explore the area’s attractions, which include:
Centennial Park houses a replica of the Parthenon that actually took longer to build than the original! Nashville is called the "Athens of the South" because of its large number of universities and a replica of the Greek monument was constructed for the Centennial Exposition. At the park you can hear concerts and enjoy festivals with your canine as they dog-friendly venues. On Wednesday nights your canine companion can sit next to you at an outdoor movie screening. There is even a sno-cone vendor who is happy to make an ice-only version for your dog.
Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park comprises 930 acres and is one of five natural area parks within Nashville’s metro parks system. It is a grand place to walk your dog, with three miles of Cumberland River frontage, bottomland hardwood forests, wetlands, open fields and streams. Your dog will be as excited as you are at the variety of birds and animals you will encounter. There are five miles of paved trails for cycling, hiking, running and skating, but you may be more interested in the other five miles of primitive paths for walking and exploring nature.
It recently became more of a treat to visit Nashville with your dog, since the city passed an ordinance allowing you to bring your pet to restaurants with outside seating. Most of the restaurants in East Nashville are particularly dog-friendly, so try out any of them. One in particular you might want to visit is the 3 Crow Bar, where they serve some of the best burgers in town and will bring out a pail of ice water for your companion.
Finally, if there is something you and your family really wants to do and your dog cannot come along, then it is good to know that there is a great place for Fido to wait for you. The Belmont Pet Resort and Daycare has a webcam that you can access via your smartphone so you can see your dog sleeping, playing or even swimming in the pool. Features include a 30-foot splash pool with fountains, an outdoor doggie daycare play area with mud-free artificial grass, four indoor play areas and luxury suites with flatscreen televisions.
