Nashville, the state capital of Tennessee, is very well-known for being a hub of the music industry, particularly the country music genre. Throughout Nashville, you can find several museums, professional sports teams, historic landmarks, universities, and plenty of delicious restaurants!
Many of the local restaurants have outdoor seating or, at the very least, will put out a small water bowl for your pup friends. While they may not be welcomed at every restaurant, some local businesses are happy to have your pup join you for your meal as long as they are under your control during your entire visit.
The boundaries of Germantown include Hume Street to the northwest, 2nd Avenue to the northeast, Jefferson Street to the south, and Rosa L. Parks Boulevard to the west. Rosa L. Parks Boulevard and Jefferson Street are both major streets through the city and will likely have heavier traffic.
There are only two parks within walking distance of Germantown. First, Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park is a 19-acre park dedicated to the history of the state of Tennessee. There are plenty of statues and memorials dedicated to famous Tennesseans and significant moments in history. Again, there is no dedicated area for pups, but this park would make for a nice, leisurely walk for you and your pup. The second park within walking distance is Victory Park, encompassing the greenways surrounding the Tennessee State Capitol.
Thankfully, there are two dog parks within two miles of Germantown: the Bark Park, an urban dog park with a coffee bar for our people friends, and the Downtown Dog Park located along the Cumberland River.
