The majority of colleges and universities let students loose for Spring Break between March and April. For those who of us "adulting," March and April not only bring back nostalgic memories of Spring Break, but is also around the time when winter is taking its toll. Whether you get time off or you take off, it's time for an escape!
We think a trip to Nashville sells itself, but in case you needed a little more convincing, we've compiled the top 7 reasons to book a Spring Break trip to Nashville!
Weather: Nashville experiences milder temperatures during spring (typically in the 60s & 70s), making it the perfect time to explore different Nashville neighborhoods or adventure withouts the threat of sweat.
Nashville in Bloom: The cherry blossoms and dogwoods make walking around Nashville parks and gardens not only beautiful but fragrant as well.
Outdoor Events: Many outdoor events and festivals take place in Nashville during spring. Our favorites during March and April include Tin Pan South, Tennessee Flavors, Nashville Fashion Week, Nashville Cherry Blossom Festival, Nashville Comedy Festival, East Nashville Beer Festival and the Rock 'N' Roll Marathon & 1/2 Marathon.
Live Music: Nashville is always a tour stop for major bands, and outdoor concerts become more common during this time of year. Some of the concerts on our radar include:
Dan + Shay @ Bridgestone Arena - March 21
Muscadine Bloodline @ Ryman Auditorium – March 23
Chris Tomlin @ Bridgestone Arena - March 29
A.J. Croce @ Ryman Auditorium – March 29
Chelsea Cutler @ Ryman Auditorium – March 30

Outdoor Dining: There's no better way to kick-off patio season than in Nashville. Temperatures are pleasant, drinks are flowing and there are endless options of hip rooftop bars or kitschy patios to visit. A few of our favorites include: White Limozeen, Bobby’s Rooftop Lounge, Rare Bird, The Pool Club, and L.A. Jackson.
Luxe Accommodations: There are so many awesome AirBnbs and hotels for reasonable prices and inventory is much more flexible than the summer months. Check out where we recommend our friends and family to stay when they come to visit: Legacy Hospitality and these chic Gulch rentals.
Spring Outfit Refresh: There is nothing more invigorating when boutiques move chunky sweaters to the sale rack and replace them with fresh clothes in light fabrics and bright colors. Come on a Bevē shopping tour to refresh your wardrobe for Spring!
