Having fun under the summer sun is the subject for many songs and books. A summer in Nashville, however, does all of the creative stories one better. There’s a lot of ways to enjoy the summer months in Nashville. We here at Two Rivers Ford have a few recommended Nashville summer activities that you should take part in, (preferably in a new Ford vehicle)!
Is there anything that says summer more than relaxing at Wave Country on a hot July day? The water park is open all week through August 4th. That means there’s plenty of time to plan a trip in July! The wave-action swimming pool offers a thrilling way to cool off and escape from the blazing heat of the summer sun. Visitors are welcome to bring their own coolers, but concessions are available as well!
There are few summer experiences like taking in the scenic natural setting of a Japanese garden like Shomu-en. Also known as Pine-Mist garden, the four-part landscape is a place to find your inner peace. Travel through all four parts and exit at a level of relaxation unlike any other.

Summer showers are bound to happen, but no kid wants to be stuck inside during summer, right? That sounds like it warrants a trip to Dave & Buster’s! Located in the Opry Mills Mall, visitors can try their hand at bowling or venture into the game room where fun challenges await.
