Here Are 4 of the Best Things to Do in Nashville in November

1. Opry at the Ryman

You can witness the show that made country music famous (Grand Ole Opry) from the comfort of its iconic former venue, Ryman Auditorium. But, it’s only for a limited period of time! Starting in November through December, Opry at the Ryman comes back to life. Enjoy some of the hottest country music artists out there as they take the legendary stage for two hours!

2. A Country Christmas at the Gaylord Opryland

A Country Christmas at the Gaylord Opryland is a child’s dream during November and December. Gaylord Opryland hosts the best holiday traditions.

 The season is jam-packed with events and activities. This includes a visit to see Santa, the Opryland Kids Express Train ride, life-sized ice sculptures that tell a story, an ice skating rink, musicals, and so much more! This is one of the best places to take kids for family fun in Nashville during the holiday season.

3. Dancing Lights of Christmas

In Music City, it’s not surprising that the Christmas lights are dancing! Bring the family to Dancing Lights of Christmas at Wilson County and the James E. Ward Agricultural Center. It’s two and a half miles of dazzling lights, dancing to your favorite tunes! After driving through the most spectacular Christmas lights, arrive at Santa’s village. There, you can find pony rides, inflatables, ice skating, a mechanical reindeer, and of course, the man himself — Santa!

4. CMA Awards

November is the perfect time to visit Nashville because one of the biggest events happens then. Get dolled up and head to one of the greatest nights of the year for country music, the CMA Awards! See your all-time favorite country artists take the stage at Bridgestone Arena in front of the entire country. Make sure you get your tickets far in advance. This is a high profile event you don’t want to miss!
