My husband and I spent two days in Nashville on a road trip through Tennessee. Since we were going to the Grand Ole Opry we stayed at the Gaylord Opryland Resort which was almost next door. We knew the Gaylord Opryland would be nice but it exceeded our expectations. We had a room with a balcony to the Cascades Atrium with the waterfalls less than 100 feet away. It was like staying in a rain forest! There is lots to see and do inside the nine acres of gardens, shops and restaurants. There is even a boat cruise that travels through part of the indoor gardens in this huge atrium.
We enjoyed dining at the Cascades American Cafe with its beautiful surroundings and excellent food. We could see the cafe from our balcony of our room. It was the best meal we had on our 10 day trip!
Tootsies Orchid Lounge. Country stars such as Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and numerous other Grand Ole Opry stars have performed there. We had hoped to visit the Bluebird Cafe but were unable to get a table. Maybe next trip.
