Fall is a wonderful time to be in Middle Tennessee! There is so much to see and do that we couldn’t possibly list it all. Instead, we’re highlighting a few options you might have missed that sound like fun to us. Enjoy!

Take the family on a treasure hunt! Use your smartphone to find caches (aka treasure!) hidden around Stoney Creek Farm. Geocaching newbies are welcome—instructions will be provided and staff will be on hand to answer questions. After the hike, kids can also go feed the goats and walk around the farm/play on the swing set. Parents/grandparents are welcome to bring a lunch and enjoy time outdoors on the farm. Saturday, September 10 from 10 AM–11:30 AM. Tickets and info here.

BEER QUEST WITH JACKALOPE BREWING CO. – BRENTWOOD

If geocaching sounds like fun but your idea of treasure is something more adult (and liquid), leave the kids at home and head to Beer Quest VI. Find all six tokens using a map or GPS, then exchange them for a flight of beer and a pizza. All tickets include admission, beer, and food truck meal combo. Saturday, September 17 at 4 PM (team competition) or 5 PM (individuals). Must be 21 or older. Details here.

It’s a fun outing any time of year. Open 7 days a week 10 AM – 6 PM at 116 3rd Ave S, Nashville, TN 37201.
