    Family Fun Day | Nashville Staycation

    Today marks the fifth day of our Nashville Staycation series! In this series we are giving readers a planned themed day out on the town to escape from your jobs, but not spend too much money by going on a vacation.

    Today’s theme is Family Fun Day. This theme is designed for parents who want to take their children out for a day, but still have fun themselves and live like a child at heart.

    Family Fun Day

    Breakfast: The Pfunky Griddle
