This time of year when it’s finally getting colder and feeling like fall, I want to go do all the fall activities. Just because you’re not a kid or you don’t have kids doesn’t mean you can’t have some fall fun! Today I’m sharing a few of my top fall activities for adults in Nashville. See if your favorite made the list!
Top Fall Activities for Adults in Nashville
- Cheekwood – Our local botanical gardens has beautiful grounds and in the fall they add pumpkin houses! I love going on a week day and walking around with a cup of coffee in hand. You can visit the pumpkin house and patch from now until October 27.
- Jack’s Pumpkin Glow – A friend and I visited here a few weeks ago and we had the best time! We walked around, admired all the lights, displays and pumpkins. It’s a family friendly event but just as fun for adults looking for a festive night out.
- Light the Nations – In West Nashville there’s an area called The Nations (AKA where I live). Every year they shut down 51st Ave and have food trucks, local shopping, music, and fun. It’s free to the public and you’ll see me wandering around.
- TASTE Nashville – This 21+ event is held at Oz Nashville on November 24 and attendees will enjoy food, drinks, a silent auction and DJ. A night of food and fun!
- Zoolumination – I love the Nashville Zoo and starting November 15, see the zoo with over 500 silk lanterns that are animal and holiday themed. This is a night event held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
- Halloween Game with The Nashville Predators – Have some fun on Halloween and head to Bridgestone Arena for a hockey game. The Press are playing the Calgary Flames and it’s always a good time in Smashville!
- Haunted House – Nothing says fall and Halloween like a haunted house! Some local favorites; Devil’s Dungeon, Haunted Hell and Slaughterhouse.
- Tennessee Beer & Wine Festival – October 19, we’ll be hanging out at the Two Rivers Mansion and enjoying beer from the best breweries in the world and regional wines. There’s live music and so fun to go to with friends.
- Land Trust for Tennessee’s Once in a Blue Moon – On October 26, Once in a Blue Moon is an event hose organization’s mission to conserve the unique character of Tennessee’s natural and historic landscape. It’s 21+ and you’ll enjoy live music, farm to table dinner, cocktails and much more!
- Apple picking – Find a local farm and enjoy apple picking, apple cider, and much more! I go to Breeden’s in Mt. Juliet and love their apple cider and other fall goods. I’m a sucker for anything apple-flavored!
