Music City was recently ranked second in the country for job growth. You may be one of those people planning to move to Nashville, and you need somewhere to stay for a while as you look for the perfect house. You might also be in Nashville for a loved one’s extended medical stay, or perhaps a months-long work project. Whatever your reason for visiting: Welcome!
Now that you’re here during the spookiest season of all, what will you and your family do for Halloween? With haunted houses, parties, pumpkin patches, and special concerts aplenty, you’d be lucky to find yourself celebrating a Nashville Halloween.
Everyone knows that the best part of Halloween is coming home laden with gobs of candy after trekking untold miles and knocking on so many doors your knuckles end up sore. Just like every town across the country, everyone that lives here knows the best neighborhoods to hit for the best candy. If you’re not from around here, though, we’ve got you covered with a list of the best streets to hit for your trick-or-treating treks with the little ones!
Belle Meade Plantation
Could there possibly be anything more delightfully creepy than a massive historic home in the heart of Nashville decked out in spider webs and skeletons? On Sunday, October 21st from 1pm to 3pm, you can take your whole family for free to their community trick-or-treat. There will be a children’s costume parade, a Carriage House dance party, and a mile-long treat walk! Just think of the amount of candy you can rack up in a mile!
North Maney Avenue
Just like a scene from a horror story, the old Maney Mansion can be found in the dead end of North Maney Avenue. Meander up the tree-lined drive and find yourself stricken with awe at the sight of the famous and grandiose Maney Mansion of Murfreesboro. They’ll start handing out candy around 4pm, so be sure to get there before they run out of candy! It’s free to the public, too, so get a glimpse of true historic opulence while also snagging a sweet haul of candy.
On the Saturday before Halloween, Moss-Wright Park at will be the place to be for families looking to have a safe, spooky, and fun night scavenging for candy. While trick-or-treating is certainly the main reason for the season, Halloween in the Park in Goodlettsville will go beyond that with games, crafts, food, and music that will keep the whole family in the spooky spirit.
The Neighborhoods to Hit
Just like the good old days, the Belmont neighborhood near downtown Nashville is lined with sidewalks and street parking that are perfect for trick-or-treating. The beautiful neighborhood is also known for going above and beyond the gravewhen it comes to decorating. Spiders climbing over houses, the undead clawing their way up through the dirt from below, the residents of Belmont sure know how to attract a crowd for Halloween!
The streets around the Belle Meade Plantation are home to some of the most impressive homes this city has to offer. Put on your finest Halloween costumes and drool over the immaculate houses while your kids load up on candy.
From East Nashville’s Eastland Avenue to Franklin’s Main Street and everywhere in between, the neighborhoods in Nashville offer a picturesque locale to take your kids this Halloween. The city is growing by leaps and bounds without compromising their integrity and forward momentum, which is reason enough alone to check out a few Nashville long-term apartment rentals so you can stay a while and see what all the fuss is about!
