If you are visiting Nashville, TN anytime soon with your sweet fur baby, I found a TON of fun activities you can do with your pet while visiting. Tucker travels with me pretty much anytime we go on a vacation so I am always on the lookout for fun things that he can do as well.

Anytime I visit a city, whether Tucker goes with me or not, I love making sure I scope out all the pet-friendly activities so that you, my readers, have the low down on where you can travel with your pet!.



There are so many pet-friendly hotels in Nashville. Several of the upscale hotels have specialty pet programs that do nothing but pamper your sweet pooch! designed to pamper your pet. From amazing comfy pet beds and hospitality massages, your sweet fur baby will feel like they are living their best life.

Hutton Hotel near Music Row is a boutique hotel offering a precious pup accommodation package complete with bandana, food bowls and more. They even offer an in-room Furry Friend Menu featuring organic snacks.

If you aren’t ready for a splurge, there are other great dog-friendly options such as the Embassy Suites near the airport or Residence Inn near Vanderbilt University.


Nashville has SO MANY pet-friendly restaurants. Basically, if a restaurant has a patio, they will let your dog come and eat there with you. 

It’s not uncommon to visit and see a poochie sitting in a seat on a patio enjoying some good treats.

Here are a few of our favorite places to eat!
