Fall is my favorite time of year. The weather is beautiful. The foliage is breathtaking. The autumn breeze truly inspires me. But my favorite thing about the fall is Halloween especially in Nashville. There are a ton of family Halloween activities to experience. From late September to early November Nashville offers a variety of activities for you and yours. Here are my top three family Halloween activities in Nashville, Tennessee.
Enjoy this fun activity at Rippa Villa Plantation located in Spring Hill, TN. You can navigate your way through a corn maze. What a fun family experience. You also have the option of using your GPS instead of the traditional piece of paper. In my opinion the GPS is kind a cheating. I say keep it traditional! The maze takes anywhere from 45 minutes up to two hours. The maze is not haunted so don’t worry about any sneaky creatures. There are some safety rules such as children, no running, children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult, and no beverage containers allowed in the maze. For adults it’s $7 and children cost $5. For further information go to:
2-Fright Lights at Adventure Science Center
This is spooktacular! This event takes place on October 30thand 31st. There are several show times in the evening starting from 6PM until 10PM. This is a spooky laser show inspired by Halloween and is held at the Adventure Science Center in the Sudekum Planetarium. Listen to Halloween classic tunes such as “Monster Mash” and the Michael Jackson hit “Thriller” while enjoying a stimulating laser light show. The greatest thing about this event is getting to enjoy Halloween in a unique, creative way. This is not the typical Halloween etiquette but it is definitely memorable for you and your family.
