Hermitage Dog Days | Kids Out and About Nashville

Hermitage Dog Days

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 11/30/2019
Bring out your favorite canine and enjoy the trails and grounds of Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage!

Our NEW monthly series will allow dogs and their humans to enjoy the acreage of The Hermitage every last Saturday of the month, from May through November. On Dog Days, visitors can purchase an $8 grounds pass (Members get in FREE!) to walk the grounds, hike the trails and enjoy the preserved natural surroundings and historic 19th-century buildings.

PLUS for a $15 combo ticket ($7 for Members), guests can get an exclusive Hounds Hike the Hermitage Tour with a surprise Hermitage team member. This 60-minute walking tour will include stories of the Hermitage community and explore the outer edges of the historic area, including untouched fields and enslaved quarter sites. Tours will leave at 10 a.m. from the Andrew Jackson Visitor Center. Space is limited, so guests are encouraged to purchase tickets online and reserve their spot!
