Are you talking for you, or with your kids?

With your kids:
The library has some good events and activity times. If you have an infant or toddler, I think they have some sort of Mommy & Me music hour on Wednesday mornings.

If your kids are a little older, Skies Unlimited has all sorts of sports and after-school activities for kids to get involved with.

Also for older kids, I think the bowling alley has some dollar nights, but I don't know any details.

For you:
Nashville has a lot to do--so I hear. When we first moved here I was pregnant (ie, not into the loud-music-at-a-bar scene) and now my husband is deployed and I'm single-parenting the baby. But I have girlfriends who go down there a lot and love it. Decent shopping, yummy restaurants, and the music scene really is phenomenal.

That being said, I'm kind of a homebody. But there's a Borders at the mall where you can sit and read, there's a Starbucks on post just inside gate 5 and there's another one on Wilma Rudolph.

Estep Wellness Center on post has good fitness classes. And they have childcare.

If you're artsy there's an arts & crafts center on post where that has, like, pottery and custom framing classes. The Hobby Lobby on Wilma Rudolph periodically will have different classes as well.

In the summers, Beechaven Winery has Jazz on the Lawn every-other Saturday night.

If you go to www.myarmyoncesource.com (I think) you can search for different voluteer opportunities. You could take the AFTB (Army Family Team Building) classes through ACS (Army Community Services, I think). AFTB has three levels: Level 1 is kind of an "Army 101" introductory class, Level 2 is more introspective in looking at how you're affected by different aspects of the Army community, and Level 3 is about volunteering and your role in the community around you. AFTB classes have free childcare.

Wish I knew. I just got here too. There are a lot of parks around here. I've only gone to the Dunbar State Park. It was okay... but it was nice because it was different.

Good luck to both of us I guess.

You can look at the MWR website and they have a calendar of events. The YMCA on post also has activities.
