Grand Ole Opry

The Grand Ole Opry, an American Icon and Nashville's number one attraction, is known for creating one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences for audiences of all ages. It's where unforgettable moments happen every week...moments like the night Trace Adkins revealed a tweet inviting his pal Blake Shelton to become a member of the Opry. With country music's new stars, superstars, and legends live on stage, you never know what'll happen next. See the show that made country music famous.

Because my wife and I toured Nashville over the last two days I decided not to pay the 27 dollar entrance fee but just did the above stated things here. I had paid enough in entrance fees the last couple of days but got a sense of what this place was all about by touring some of the building without doing the guided tour. I walked the grounds and shopped in the Gift Shop. It is certainly a grand place were big name acts plus up & coming stars play on this stage. I enjoyed it here by just doing what I did here today without costing me a dime expect the cost of a t-shirt to take home back to Canada.

Long Hunter

Reviewed By AllisonCW - Nashville, Tennessee

My husband and I took our dog hiking at Long hunter state park. We did the 4 mile day loop which was very nice. It was mostly shaded which was great on a hot day. There were areas where you went along the water and crossed little streams. It was a relatively flat dirt path most of the way with a little bit of up-and-down and some rocks and roots. The trail was well marked. We sat on a huge rock and looked at the lake below at the halfway point which was nice. The volunteer trail was 5.5 miles each way which was a little bit longer than we wanted to go. Definitely worthwhile!

Hermitage Golf Course

Reviewed By BloggerLinda - Johns Creek, Georgia

They have two courses, The President's Reserve and The General's Retreat. Both are very nice courses. The Reserve is spread out with nice, wide fairways with little water. It's the easier of the two. Since it was added later, it is secluded. There are restrooms as well as a half way house. Has many elevated greens. We preferred The Retreat. A much more scenic course with lot of water. The issue is that it is more of a links course. There were many people yelling "Fore" because their ball was headed into another fairway. Restrooms on the course and the halfway house is in the club house. All carts have GPS systems. We stayed in some of there new two bedroom two bath cottages. They were a great deal. They have a sitting room, kitchenette, fridge, coffee maker and each room has two queen beds and an adequate bathroom with a shower. There is a putting green and fire pit right behind the cottages. It's a 30 minute ride into town or ride share $40 one way. Since we played both days there, it made sense to stay there. Would do that again.

Ryman Auditorium

One of the most famous concert halls in the history of country music, this auditorium still hosts live music events.

Reviewed By gr8passage - United States

I am thinking this experience is far more meaningful for fans of old-time country music which we are not. We had many friends recommend our going here, but we are thinking they must have meant for a show. The shows were sold out during our visit, but we did do the self-guided and backstage tour. Really, all this involves is doing in some dressing rooms, seeing a few video clips, hearing history from a tour guide and walking on to the stage. A huge fan might find this a really fabulous experience, but, for us, it wasn't exceptional other than to say we were on the stage at the Ryman if anyone cares. I think the highlight must be attending a show here as the rest of it was basically looking at artifacts behind glass and understanding the history of the theater. There is also an opportunity to record music which is probably fun if you have any singing talent, and you can have a professional photographer take a photo of you and your family on the stage. That's it folks. Fortunately, it wasn't a very expensive experience, and it was worth about what we paid.

The Redneck Comedy Tour

The Redneck Comedy Tour - Nashville's newest and funniest sightseeing tour. See the sights, learn ya sumthin', and laugh a lot!Take a tour of all the hot spots Nashville has to offer - great for tourists and locals alike! Where caviar meets collard greens.

Reviewed By Robert K - Orland Hills, Illinois

I went with my wife and we laughed for the entire two hours. The guide and driver did an excellent job showing us sites we should see and the ones that should be avoided. You will learn redneck terms from Cue Cards. The guide asks where you are from and has an appropriate Redneck joke for your place of origin No vulgarity so your young ins will love this tour. You do get to stop at the Country Music Hall of Fame gift shop for 20 minutes of shopping. The comedy was good at heart and the guide does learn your names before you leave. We took the early tour which met 5 minutes from our hotel.

We stopped in this park during our stay in the attached resort.
In my opinion 36 US$ (we got a Camping discount ticket for 25 US$) plus parking fee to access the structure is definitely a lot of money, considering that you get... nothing

You have to bring your towels, your water, everything, and we found quite a few sunbeds that were quite dirty (one of our towels had to be washed at high temperature to be actually clean)

To be said that the lifeguards are VERY professional and VERY attentive, controlling everything and being very very strict, which is, for e, very good and important.

The place (visited on August 20th) was quite crowded, with some pretty rude people as well.
