Music lovers and outdoor enthusiasts come together in Nashville, a city that is as well-known for its honky-tonk as it is for its excellent quality of life for two- and four-legged residents and visitors. The city is surrounded by excellent hiking and biking options as well as lakes and rivers for swimming. Nashville is spread out on the beautiful Cumberland River and, just 8 miles out of the city, Radnor Lake offers trails through the lake’s surrounding wooded hills, which are home to river otters, beavers, mink, and white-tailed deer. Percy Warner Park is also a popular destination with city folk, but those who want a little solitude might choose to drive a little farther to the tranquil Bearman Park, where a rugged landscape with streams and waterfalls is dotted with wildflowers in the spring and shades hikers in the hot Tennessee summer with a canopy of leaves. To hear some tunes and squeeze in a hike or two with your most loyal travel companion, head to Nashville knowing we’ve got you covered with excellent pet-friendly accommodations around the city.
