Outdoor Enthusiast Day | Nashville Staycation

Today marks the tenth 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 Outdoor Enthusiast Day. This theme is designed for all of the people who want to enjoy a day in the great outdoors of Middle Tennessee.

Outdoor Enthusiast Day

Breakfast: Fox’s Donut Den

Located in the heart of Green Hills, Fox’s Donut Den is a great place to start your outdoor enthusiast’s day. Stop by and pick up coffee and donuts, muffins or bagels. It is some of the best you’ll find anywhere in town. While you are there, pick up one of their old fashioned cake donuts.

Morning Activity: Cheekwood Botanical Gardens

After a great breakfast, go explore Nashville’s historic Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. The Cheekwood Mansion was completed in 1932, and originally owned by Leslie and Mabel Cheek. The property we know today opened to the public in 1960 as a botanical garden and art museum. Home to many beautiful gardens, Cheekwood is a perfect place for all outdoor enthusiasts.

Pick up a great pulled pork sandwich or brisket and mac-n-cheese, baked beans or black eyed peas. Edley’s is always guaranteed to satisfy.
