Offbeat, unusual and downright awesome - you can find many cool things to do in Nashville. Whether you end up traipsing off the beaten path or discovering what makes the big-name draws so unique, you're sure to have fun exploring. So grab some slick-looking shades and get going. Tucked on the pristine shores of Percy Priest Lake about 10 miles outside of Nashville, Nashville Shores is a massive water park and family recreation destination offering whitesand beaches, jetski and boat rentals, eight water slides and kayaking areas. There are few things more exhilarating than being chased through a dark maze of obstacles and you can experience this thrill at Laser Quest in downtown Nashville. Belmont Mansion is at the opposite end of the cool spectrum. Built in the 1850s by Adelicia Acklen, then one of the wealthiest women in the country, this Italianate villa is the city's most elegant historic home open to the public and its grand salon is one of the most elaborately decorated rooms in any antebellum home in Tennessee. Centennial Sportsplex, Nashville's premiere recreation venue, might just motivate you to get into better shape after all the Southern cooking you've enjoyed. From high notes to low and slow, Music City has a wide variety of cool things to do and activities to enjoy.
