GAYLORD OPRYLAND RESORT
2800 Opryland Dr
Nashville, TN 37214
STREET MAP AERIAL VIEW
What Graceland is to Memphis, Opryland is to Nashville. Whetheryou're into country music or not, a tour of this palatial property with its 85-foot water fountains, tropical foliage, and winding"rivers," is a must-see.
The Opryland has the look and feel of a massive theme park and itattracts thousands of visitors daily, on top of the numbers who are actually staying at this massive hotel. The most impressive of the hotel's numerous areas are the Delta and Cascades sections, which consist of two linked atriums. Waterfalls splash across rocky outcroppings, and fountains dance with colored lights and lasers. Bridges, meandering paths and a revolving gazebo bar add a certain quaint charm. Elsewhere at Opryland, the Magnolia lobby resembles an elegant antebellum mansion, with its classically proportioned double staircase worthy of Tara itself.
