Ice Skating

One fun way to stay cool this summer is to not only stay inside, but also go ice skating! The Centennial Sportsplex makes this easy with public ice skating times all summer.

Music City July 4th

The Fourth of July in Nashville fireworks show just isn't complete without live music. When you attend 2017's 4th of July event, you can watch performances by Chris Young, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Sisterhood, Jonny P and the Nashville Symphony.

Grand Ole Opry

You can't ignore the many shows available to you at the Grand Ole Opry. If it's too hot to hang outside, stay indoors where it's cool, and listen to live performances by musicians like Chris Young, Martina McBride, Diamond Rio and more.
