Nashville, Tennessee: Gaylord Opryland Resort
This was one of the nicest surprises of a trip to Nashville. We were told that the resort was worth a visit, and it's quite a complex. The hotel has a series of huge atriums that serve as a gathering place, and they are filled with restaurants, boat rides and other attractions. It's worth an hour of your time just to stumble around and gawk.
One tip: parking right at the hotel is pricey. Therefore, park at the adjoining mall and walk a couple of hundred yards to the hotel in order to save $10. The mall is pretty upscale, by the way, if you like that sort of shopping.
