March in Nashville is the very beginning of spring, which is the perfect time to explore the city.

We have provided a guide for walking tours in Nashville, which includes pay-what-you-like tours, self-guided tours, and paid small group tours.

If the weather is still a bit chilly for your liking, you can keep warm in a double-decker on a bus tour or the hop on hop off trolley tour.

The double-decker tour lasts one hour while a guide points out things to do, see, and interesting modern and historic landmarks. 


(6) See the Trains Exhibit at the Adventure Science Center

The Adventure Science Center hosts an annual exhibit for the holidays focusing on model trains. This year, the exhibit will be closing on March 27th, 2022.

One of their more interesting attractions is the Sudekum Planetarium, a 63-foot dome theater which hosts various laser shows, concerts, and more.
