Me and my bestie traipsed our brood of children all over Nashville yesterday for some summer fun and a little culture too! Basically, we are awesome.
We had this idea to do a mural tour months ago. We even put it on our #SummerBucketList. I scoured the internet for a “plan” that would take us systematically around Nashville and tell me where to stop, eat, park, ect. Alas, it was not to be found so I put in several hours of research and planning to make my own. I didn’t want all that hard work to go to waste so I’m sharing my delightful little plan with you all.
Items to Note:
We were a party of 10 and eight of our pack were children.
In light of number one, this plan is flexible. Meaning, if your crew is tuckering out you can skip stops. In fact, we did skip one stop and 2 murals.
Since we had lots of little people there are special treats thrown in like ice cream along with less expensive food like Subway.
Little bodies cooped up in the car in the middle of summer need opportunities to cool off and play so I built in a stop at the splash pad. Be sure to take a change of clothes.
Some murals are in close proximity so there is a little walking involved.
There are many more murals in Nashville by some fantastic artists. I selected a top 10 based on popularity and the personalities of our group.
This plan includes 7 stops, 10 murals, and a skyline photo op. A star equals a new stop.
List of Murals:
Field of Flowers
I Believe in Nashville
What Lifts You
Stay Tuned Nashville
The complete tour including a stop for ice cream, lunch, and spalsh pad would have taken our group about 6 hours. For a smaller group, you could easily get it done in 4-5. If you powered through with no stops for food/play I think you could get it done in 3-4. I’d love to hear how your tour goes. What was your favorite mural of the day?
