Music City Hotel near the Grand Ole Opry
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
Country music is ingrained in American culture, from cowboy hats to honky tonks, country music symbolizes the American frontiersman.

Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center
If staying at the Gaylord Opryland Resort is out of your budget, you can still cruise around the indoor accommodations with a small town feel and then come back to Holiday Inn Nashville Opryland/Airport to give your feet and your wallet a rest.
General Jackson Showboat
Tour the Cumberland River for Sunday brunch, midday shows, or an evening cruise. Plan your mid-morning around music and a view of Nashville as you make your way down the river. If lunch better suits your fancy, depart at noon and enjoy southern cuisine while hearing your favorite country hits and getting a chuckle with live comedy. Already got your day planned out? Board in the evening and enjoy a full-course meal while listening to everything from bluegrass to soul to gospel. Don’t forget to partake in the view of beautiful downtown Nashville at sunset.
Grand Ole Opry
Feel the connection to generations past with tickets to the Grand Ole Opry. Since 1925, large crowds have been attracted to this venue, and when you visit, you can almost feel their presence. Be moved by the music and the history, as you obtain a closeness to the performers and the building itself.
You simply cannot visit Nashville without exploring the heart of Nashville’s entertainment industry. Right down Music Square East and West, you will behold business upon business dedicated solely to the moment when something great is created – music.
Schermerhorn Symphony Center
Something special happens when you see the symphony live – no recording can compare. Make it a special event when you see the Nashville Symphony at a venue that will take your breath away. If you’re more interested in the architecture than the symphony, you can also schedule a tour of the building or check out movie times.
Former home of the Grand Ole Opry, when the Opry moved visitors still kept coming back and now you can see why. Come see a live show in the same place used to film parts of Sweet Dreams (the story of Patsy Cline) and Coal Miner’s Daughter.
