During a trip to the Nashville Zoo, guests greet animals who crawl, swim, creep, and fly through a wide range of habitats and displays, including a three-acre savannah and 15,000-square-foot lagoon. Pack a map and board a train to peek at elands, swap tales with zebras, and challenge ostriches to a game of Simon Says. The fun continues indoors as the Unseen New World exhibit enthralls visitors with reptiles, snakes, and bats, and the amphitheater plays host to daily animal shows. Elsewhere throughout the park, kids can scale a 66,000-square-foot jungle gym and emit whoops on the Wild Animal Carousel, burning off excess energy before moving on to meet toucans, cougars, and sasquatches.
Friends of Riverside Drive, a collective volunteer effort, began with a vision to transform local neighborhoods by planting dogwood and yoshino cherry trees. Along with tree plantings across neighborhoods and involvement with the Riverside Blossom Festival, Friends of Riverside Drive’s main work is restoring beauty and dignity to Riverside Drive, a community road that provides the main route to the National Cemetery and once served as a recognized, living memorial to war veterans.
A marksman steps into his lane, steadies his aim, and fires at the target hanging 25 yards away. On Sumner Gun & Supply's 10-lane indoor range, this scenario plays out daily as shooters hone their handgun proficiency. In addition to overseeing open-range time, Sumner's defense experts teach classes, such as youth safety seminars and advanced pistol operation. Between classes and sessions on the range—which is equipped with adjustable benches for disabled and elderly guests—a lounge area encourages guests to relax upon black leather couches while watching a flat-screen television. For frequent visitors, the staff offers several membership options.
Beyond the range, Sumner Gun & Supply extends to a pro shop, where arms specialists serve sport shooters, hunters, security officers, and collectors of antique weapons. An onsite gunsmith also dispenses services, including the cleaning, repair, restoration, and customization of firearms.
Live musical acts hit the stage every night at Music City Bar & Grill, compelling feet to move and hips to request an encore. Holiday lights twinkle and guide waitstaff to tables where patrons order from a menu of hearty bar fare, which includes Angus-beef burgers, three-meat pizzas, and salads topped with grilled steak or chicken. At the pool tables, balls click together in time to the music, and outdoor seating gives people the chance to serenade the stars using voices normally reserved for sad lightbulbs.
