If you’ve been planning a trip to Nashville, Tennesee but find yourself repeatedly postponing it, it might be time to finally put that plan into action. With its energetic music scene and excellent food, Nashville is always a great city to explore but there is a special charm to it during the year’s colder months. 

During October and November rain may be frequently on the forecast, but don’t let that deter you. The lighter crowds make it the best time to visit the city’s museums and live music venues, or try out some of the famed Nashville restaurants without having to fight over a reservation. Not to mention Nashville is one of the best places in the US to see fall foliage: check out Chickweed Botanical Garden, which combines flowers and greenery with art exhibitions.

During the winter, from December to March, there are virtually no crowds in the city. Although few attractions close over the winter months, you’ll have top Nashville experiences like tours at the Ryman Auditorium and Country Music Hall of Fame pretty much to yourself. Visiting during the Christmas season is, of course, its own experience: lights, Nutcracker performances, gingerbread workshops are some of the added bonuses of visiting Nashville during the festive season.
