To have fun even when you are restrained by a stingy purse is rather difficult. However, in Nashville, there’s certainly no need to worry. Be it summer or winter, the Music City has loads to offer and it’s completely free! So, pick out the varied things you may indulge in for free and grab a weekend to have a blast.
On Saturdays, during the months of April, May, June and September music bands perform live from 1:30 pm to 6 pm on the center stage and no fee is charged for admission or enjoying the show. Moreover, there are several pre-show delights such as wine garden and food trucks. And, if you crave to get entertained at night, turn up on any Friday for a round of acoustic performances from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
Ramble along the corridors of this museum exhibiting the rich history of the state through its varied artifacts, paintings, historic weapons, a print shop reproduction and much more and the best thing is that admission is completely free.
All 4 sections of the hotel get decked out throughout winter to ring in the spirit of Christmas to the fullest. Feast your eyes on the bouncing fountains and waterfalls as you step in through the Cascades, marvel at the array of Christmas lights that dangle from the ceiling of the Garden Conservatory section and finally get serenaded with soulful tunes in Magnolia.
From October to November, the annual Halloween event called Pumpkinfest at Main Street in downtown Franklin is a hit with kids of all ages for containing activities such as costume contests, pumpkin carving and many more.

With multiple play areas, slides, tunnels and a small water body, this, also sometimes called “Dragon Park”, is an ideal place for spending a couple of happy hours with your toddler.

From February to March, every Thursday, the Union Station Hotel houses this session in which local songwriters narrate the stories behind their songs. So, secure a corner in the hotel lobby between 7 pm to 9 pm to get acquainted with the tales that go up to make some famous songs.
