Local Adventures Planned For You

With A Little Help From Happyly

Nashville is always full of fun events and adventures but have you ever found yourself wondering what to do? Introducing Happyly! The Happyly app is the perfect solution, inspiring local exploration for families. The adventures suggested by Happyly are curated by parents for parents, giving you all the deets -  playgrounds, hiking and walking trails, indoor activities, kid-friendly eats and more.  You can search by activity or develop a custom plan.

Happyly sent me on a summer exploration day to some of Franklin and Nashville’s best local spots. This kid and pup friendly day started out with grabbing a house made pastry and coffee at one of my favorite spots in town, Franklin Bakehouse.  After my caffeine fix, the next stop on the adventure plan was Edwin Warner Park. We could’ve spent all day picnicking and playing in the park but decided to head to our next stop: Red Caboose Park. Even though we’ve lived in Nashville for years, we hadn’t been to Red Caboose before.  After running lots of energy off and working up an appetite, we couldn’t wait for our last stop: TailGate Brewery. Plenty of outdoor seating (for furry family members) and kid-friendly food options.

Happyly provided this adventure plan for us and it was such a fun day of exploring some of our favorite places and new spots. The Happyly app makes it so easy to explore different cities. Next time you have out of town guests or just looking for a weekend adventure, you can find many ideas on Happyly.

Our Happyly Adventure

Stop #1 – Franklin Bakehouse. Their outside dining allows guests to bring along their dogs.

Stop #2 – Little Harpeth River at Edwin Warner Park. This park is such a treasure with trails, greenways, playground and nature areas and of course, splashing in the creek!
Stop #3 - Red Caboose Playground. The kids had a blast on the tall slides and climbing ladders.
Stop #4 – TailGate Brewery. This local brewery is perfect for the whole family.

The Bottom Line
The Happyly app made it super easy for my family, including my dog to explore new and favorite places around town. I felt comfortable knowing that other parents had vetted these locations and knew they would be enjoyed by the whole family. Downloading and navigating through the app was simple and user friendly. Not only will the app be useful in and around Nashville, but in 30 other cities as well!  Happyly is offering FREE memberships to Franklin Lifestyle readers.
