A $50/per person zoo tour on winter weekends is a chance to see and do something special. Our group of six (no young children allowed) were taken by zookeeper Jessica to the commissary, where meals for all of the zoos animals are prepared. We visited...More
We pre-booked the Backstage Pass tour and were able to feed a giraffe, anteater and okapi! We also got to tour the commissary where they prep all of the food. Our tour guide gave us great information and insight into the inner workings of the...More

Visited on one of the coldest days Nashville has had but still enjoyed it. While many of the warm weather animals were off exhibit due to the cold overall It is a great facility. Grounds are beautiful, easy to navigate, food was good and great...More
I have to say that this is one of the best zoos I have ever been too. A few of the animals were inside their enclosures due to the "cold weather". It was about 55 degrees that day. The animals we did see were great....More
No matter your age, your wealth, or place in life you always feel happy in the Nashville Zoo. They really consider every person's needs. Always exciting! And the jungle gym is an easy fix for any kid's boredom.
While the zoo is not enormous, it is full of delightful animals. The walking paths are nice for strolling and visiting and definitely steer visitors in the right direction from start to finish. Exciting the tigers will be arriving soon.

It would be helpful to know what your interests are. Music, country music, art, history, nature ... ? Or just recreational shopping/relaxing ... ?
7 nights in Brentwood, what to do cheap? (0 Replies)
My wife and I are coming down from Milwaukee to Nashville Area and are looking for cheap things to do that are pretty cool in the Nashville area. We have a zoo pass in Milwaukee, and can go to the Nashville Zoo for free. We are also spending a couple days at an adoption reunion with other families who have adopted through our agency. We are going Sep 1-8th. Any ideas in the Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin area??? thanks

Toddler Friendly activites/places in Nashville or suburb? (3 Replies)
Hi, my family is planning to visit Nashville the first time during the weekend of July 4th for 4 days.. Are there any activities and places that we should visit that can entertain a toddler (2.5 yr old)? I am thinking: - Nashville Zoo - Nashville Shores - Centennial Park, Parthenon - Wave Country (is this like the Nashville shores?) - Adventure Science Center? (Is this good for toddler?) - We'd like to see the suburb too, because one day we MIGHT relocate to Nashville. What suburb...More

All of your choices are good, Wave Country is like Nashville Shores, smaller and no lake. It is owned by the city and is likely cheaper. The Adventure Science Center has stuff for kids of all ages. I would skip Rivergate and head to Cool Springs, which is down I 65 between Brentwood & Franklin. Aside from the mall, there are many shops to check out. That are is in Williamson County, a nice area to look at, great schools, growing community, lots of housing options, safe. Fireworks...More
