Best Times to Visit Nashville

The best time to visit Nashville is from April through October, when the warm weather brings this music city to life. Although December is quite charming with Christmas decorations at the Opryland Hotel and the Belle Meade Plantation, winter is low season. From November to March, you'll find drastically lower prices on flights and hotels (excluding the holidays).

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

April-October

A late spring, summer or early fall visit to Nashville will allow travelers to enjoy the city and its attractions when the weather is the nicest. High average temperatures start in the low 70s, creep all the way up to the 90s in July and settle back in the low 70s by October. That said, Nashville's climate is extraordinarily fickle – from stifling humidity to thunderstorms – so you should pack for all types of weather conditions. Hotels rates this time of year, especially in the summer, will be inflated.

Key Events:

November-March

Nashville is a little gloomy in the winter with temperatures ranging from the upper 20s to the 40s. But the good thing is that you'll be able to find some major deals on rooms and airfare, except over the holiday season.
