Seniors Travel to Nashville

Apr 20th, 2011 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

If you have never visited Nashville, Tennessee, then you are in for a real treat, especially if you are a lover of country music. Here is the official guide loaded with events calendar, lodging, tickets, vacation packages and the convention and visitors bureau site.

With live music of every genre being performed any night of the week, more than 180 recording studios, and some 5,000 working musicians, Nashville is known the world over as Music City. Music put Nashville on the map, but it’s not its only claim to fame. From two major-league sports teams, to an extensive park system, to world-renowned attractions such as the Parthenon and the Ryman Auditorium, the Nashville region has something to keep everyone entertained.

The Promise of Nashville, where the music is inspired, created, recorded and performed, is to provide the ultimate musical entertainment experience, celebrated throughout the diverse cultural and entertainment offerings, and presented in an authentic, unique, friendly and unpretentious atmosphere. Of course Nashville is synonymous with country. Big names today include Ashley Monroe, Jeremy Lister, Kirk Whalum, Chris Janson, Teah Spears and Tommy Sims. It’s not called “MUSIC CITY” for any other reason than it is dedicated to and entirely full of music.

To become acclimated to the environment how about taking a tour of the city prior to settling down and knowing what you want to see and do? Nashville Shows, Tours and Attractions can help simplify this task by suggesting the Grand Ole Opry, General Jackson cruises and the many sightseeing day tours and attractions. If you need transportation to the Grand Ole Opry from your hotel, you can get tickets with round-trip transportation. If you are looking for a weekend getaway, this site also offers a Vacation Package that includes a stay at the Opryland Hotel, tickets to the show, and a dinner cruise on the General Jackson.

Expedia can put you into the immediate vicinity called Opryland. I suggest the one and only Opryland Hotel. Hotels aren’t usually tourist attractions, but this one is an exception. With 2,881 rooms, the place is beyond big, but what makes it worth a visit are the three massive atria that form the hotel’s three main courtyards. Together these atria are covered by more than 8 acres of glass to form vast greenhouses full of tropical plants. There are rushing streams, roaring waterfalls, bridges, pathways, ponds, and fountains. Some folks say that…”if you have not been housed in the Opryland Hotel, you really have not yet been to Nashville.”

Frommers is a big help for getting your bearings in any new city and their visitor information is top notch. Nashville is ranked #1 for live music; #1 for an affordable getaway; #3 for friendliness; and #4 for best barbecue in the 2010 “America’s Favorite Cities” ranking in Travel + Leisure magazine, November 2010. is a simple, one-stop source for information about all the performances, venues, exhibitions, sports, recreation and community events that are happening year-round. Would you like a Music City Vacation Guide free and online? To request a Vacation Guide be mailed to you,  complete the form here. This site has great information on the city and why is it such an important southern hub. Lastly I will leave you with an article entitled “How to Visit Nashville, Tennessee” with just about everything seniors will need to make their visit totally enjoyable. You may even come away humming some familiar tunes. jeb
