What to Wear in Nashville in November?

November brings colder weather, so it is best to bring clothes suitable for late fall and early winter conditions.

Long but comfortable walking pants are recommended.

Also, bring some jeans and a good pair of cowboy boots to match. 

You will need a medium-weight coat or jacket plus a light jacket, windbreaker, or a few sweaters for those warmer days.

Don’t forget a good pair of walking shoes for your visit as the downtown district is hilly, so comfortable footwear is a must.
