When you think of snowbird destinations, most people think of the southern states such as Florida, Texas and Arizona. But you don’t have to travel that far to get away from the cold. Nashville, Tennessee is a great snowbird destination if you want to escape the harsh winter weather but not travel as far south as the Gulf of Mexico.
Winter temperatures in Nashville average in the 40’s and 50’s for a high with low to moderate rainfall. They do occasionally get some snow showers but rainfall is more typical for the area for precipitation. Although the traffic does die down in the winter, you do still get your fair share of tourists. So if you are looking for a place to RV outside of Nashville, you won’t have to travel far.
