After fall break, we’ll be heading into the Christmas season. If you don’t have a chance to visit on fall break then Christmas is a great time to make the short journey.
The Gaylord Opryland hotel is a perfect place to stay as they have an amazing Christmas season to enjoy! This year’s newest feature is Cirque Dreams Holidaze.
Cirque Dreams Holidaze Nashville extravaganza dazzles with:
- Never-before-seen performances
- Over 300 costumes and 20 of the world’s best acts
- The finest singers, original music and seasonal favorites performed in a multi-million-dollar stage wonderland
- Experience snowmen, penguins, angels, reindeer, toy soldiers, gingerbread men and ornaments…flying, balancing and stretching imaginations
- Gravity defying feats that will have you on the edge of your seat…and, of course, Santa!
And what Christmas would be complete without Charlie Brown?
What about that last minute Christmas shopping? Gaylord Opryland Hotel is conveniently located next to Opry Mills!
You can shop ’til you drop, and then take a break for some food OR some entertainment! Opry Mills now hosts Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. It will walk you down the history of music and of course some of your favorite country stars are featured.
If you need a stress reliever visit Smith Creek Moonshine that distills moonshine and offers tastings of all their flavors!
Or for the kiddos a little break in the play area!
For lunch or dinner, they have some great eating choices from the Aquarium Restaurant to the Rainforest Cafe that will keep the kids entertained!
I had a great dinner at the Aquarium Restaurant!
With a baby on the way, I took advantage of many of their children’s stores to prep for having the first girl in our family.
