The tour we took was absolutely great. It was a
little pricy, but when you consider that
it also covered all the
entrance fees, no hassel with parking, it was
worth every dime.
We seen everything that we had hoped to and more.
We started the day going down town to the
Ryman Auditorium, which was at one time
the Grand Ole Opry House.
We had pictures taken on the stage and
got to tour back stage. Then it was on to the
Music Hall of Fame.
Very enjoyable and interesting.
Also took in the Legions Bar where we
had drinks and a bit of
good ole country music.
There were about 3 of these.
Out side the Legends Bar
After lunch we headed off to the other side of
Nashville, you could say the newer side.
This sculpture caused quite a stir as the figures are
completely naked and very graphic.
This is where the Opry Mills mall and the Opryland Hotel
along with the new Grand Ole Opry.
We first toured the Opry House, and it was huge.
There was a group from Australia and they sang
a few songs, they were very entertaining, then the tour guide
not to be out done, did a great song. A real treat.
Then we were off the the Opryland Hotel.
It has acres under glass, very Vegas like, but instead of
going up this hotel spread out. There is a canal
running through the grounds, which we rode through on large
boats, there were waterfalls, beautiful flowers, just
so lovely. But huge, we all had maps to see that we got
back to the bus, and we all did make it.
From there it was off to the Willie Nelson museum, and by then
we were all so tired, we just more or less watched the movies of
his life. We were pooped!
