Planning a trip to Nashville and not sure what to pack?

Nashville is the capitol of Tennessee but is equally as well known for being a hub of country music. Many country artists record music and perform live shows here. Although country music isn’t everything Nashville has to offer. At night there’s plenty to do ranging from night photography to enjoying drinks out with friends. During the day you can go sightseeing the see the parthenon, Music Row, ride the General Jackson showboat, or simply just eat your way through Nashville.

For Spring in Nashville you’ll want to keep your packing list simple, but suitable for the slightly chilly weather.  This Nashville packing list is best for a long weekend, or 4 day trip, but has advise if you’re visiting longer too. Read on to find out what to wear and what to bring for your Spring getaway.


When to Visit Nashville: Weather and Seasons

You might notice in Spring and Fall that the temperatures can vary widely. Both ends of the spectrum related to whether you’re closer to Summer or Winter, so keep that in mid when reviewing the packing list below.

What to pack in Spring in Nashville (March, April, May): In Spring expect temperatures to be around 38-78F / 3-25C. If visiting in March make sure to bring a scarf and a warm jacket. If instead visiting closer to summer a light jacket or coat will suffice.

What to pack in Summer in Nashville (June, July, August): Temperatures will be around 65-90F / 18-33C. Nashville is beautiful in the summer light and its a great time to enjoy outdoor activities. Time to break out your summer dresses, sandals and don’t forget a cardigan or light jacket for colder evenings.

What to pack in Fall for Nashville (September, October, November): Expect temperatures from 49-82F / 9-28C depending if you visit closer to summer or winter. With that in mind, if visiting in November you’re definitely want a warmer coat than when visiting in September. Think jeans, boots, scarfs and beanies.

What to pack in Winter in Nashville (December, January, February): Winters in Nashville, apart from the temperatures dropping, are not too difficult. Snow is not overly common although you might encounter some rain. Prepare your self by packing an insulated coat and thermal underwear (or leggings). Pants are a must here, especially when you get into the minuses. Temperatures range from 28-50F/ -2 – 10C.

Travel Insurance for Nashville


It’s important to make sure you’re covered against accidents and theft while on your travels. The most important part of insurance is undoubtedly the health coverage, meaning you wont be left in a tricky situation if you happen to be hospitalised. It also comes in handy if your belongings get stolen, but make sure you choose the option that covers you up to the value of your items.

For travel insurance I personally use and recommend World Nomads as I’ve always had a positive experience with them in the past. I’ve used them for the past 11+ years although have only had to claim a few times (luckily). They work well for both long and short trips and their prices are competitive. You can find more information on their website or try the quote tool above.


Safety and Health in Nashville

 Okay, so Nashville doesn’t have such a great rep compared to other cities of its size. Technically though, crime is still something that average tourist is unlikely to experience. For tourists, the biggest threat would be theft so that means to keep an eye on your belongings, and try to avoid going into dodgy looking areas swinging your jewellery about. Beyond that, make sure your travel insurance covers you for theft of belongings.

Healthwise you wont have too many issues accessing healthcare here and buying medicine.
