Nashville boasts a lot of kid-friendly things to do, which is good, because there are only so many music museums a 5-year-old can take. But it's not all playgrounds and jungle gyms - these attractions are truly fun for the whole family. Nashville Shores is a massive water park and family recreation destination that offers white-sand beaches, jetski and boat rentals, eight water slides and even kayaking areas. The Coleman Park Community Center is host to Nashville's newest organic farmer's market and bustling with local flavor. These days, children seem to be spending too much time watching television. But Bellevue Recreation Center is sure to lure your kids away from the electronic babysitter. Named after a pair of brothers who pioneered the area, Bledsoe Creek State Park offers outdoor activities and fun for the entire family. You might just reconnect with your own inner child - or at least Nashville's spirit of youth - at these kid-friendly things to do attractions.
