YOUR CITY, YOUR WAY | Family Outings in Nashville

    Breakfast: Noshville

    This place is as close to an authentic New York Deli as you will find in the South. Breakfast includes everything you would expect in a true deli – bagels with lox or whitefish, New York thick French toast, homemade cheese blintzes, and of course all the eggs, bacon, sausage, and ham steak one would expect for breakfast in the South. Every weekend, children under twelve get all-you-can-eat griddlecakes for free!

    Activity: Zoo

    Take a safari through Africa, escape to tropical paradise, travel down to Australia, and go deep into the Amazon jungle. Or, see it all at the Nashville Zoo! With exotic animals from all over the world, everything imaginable is in one place for “A Totally Wild Experience!” Check out an animal show, monkey around on the jungle gym, and interact with the animals at historic Grassmere.

    Lunch: Puckett’s

    Originally envisioned as a grocery store, Puckett’s has expanded into the restaurant business as well as the entertainment industry to become one of the draws to the Leiper’s Fork area in Franklin. The standard order is a meat-and-two, and you can still do your grocery shopping when you finish breakfast or lunch or watch a show with dinner on Friday nights.

    Activity: Adventure Science Center/Las Paletas

    Adventure Science Center is more than just a typical children’s museum. Featuring an Adventure Tower where kids can crawl through a beating heart among several other exhibitions at any given time, adults can also enjoy some of the museum’s events geared towards grown-up kids, such as the recent exhibit on craft breweries. After running around the museum, cool off with the best popsicles in Nashville from Las Paletas. Inspired by Mexican popsicle stands, Las Paletas brands itself as having Gourmet Popsicles, from fruit-based to creamy and in flavors we guarantee you’ve never had. Reach into the cooler to pick out the most interesting flavors or standard favorites: rose petal, chocolate strawberry, raspberry lime, avocado, cookies and cream, chocolate and chili pepper, and many many more.

    Dinner: Mellow Mushroom

    For specialty pizzas, sandwiches, calzones, and salads in a fun atmosphere, Mellow Mushroom is a great choice for families. Although it is a national chain, each location carries as many as 600 beers, sampling from the local craft breweries to put together a unique selection. Mellow Mushroom also accommodates many different nutritional needs in a variety of delicious ways, with gluten-free and vegan items available.

    Lose track of time bowling, playing pool, and eating at the sports grill at Franklin Family Entertainment Center. There is even a mini-bowling area with the game brought down to size for kids and no bowling shoes necessary! Additionally, the place is open until midnight or later every night, so big kids can stay up late enjoying all the center has to offer.
