Nashville Fun Stuff, Tornadoes And Weather

Today I heard about a number of local tourist attractions that are offering something special to those who’ve been displaced by Hurricane Katrina and now find themselves in Nashville, Tennessee.

Thanks to them, there are now lots of FUN things for these folks to do while they’re in Nashville…

The best part: They’re all FREE!

The following Nashville businesses are offering FREE Admission to Katrina evacuees:

  • Adventure Science Center
  • Centennial Park Sportsplex
  • Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art
  • Country Music Hall of Fame
  • Frist Center
  • The Hermitage
  • Nashville Predators NHL Hockey (free tickets to preseason games)
  • Nashville Public Libraries (free library cards & e-mail/Internet access!)
  • Nashville Zoo
  • The Parthenon
  • Tennessee State Museum’s “Raau” Exhibit…What fun, right?!

    Thanks to all of the local business owners who are going above and beyond to help in this way.

    I’m sure this list changes daily. If you know of others, please post in the Comments below… thanks!

    If, by chance, you’re in Nashville for some OTHER reason, I would consider the above to be the best local area attractions, and I would encourage you to visit one or more of them. You’re sure to have a great time!
