Nashville is a spectacular city. People come from all over the world to visit and enjoy everything our city has to offer. Us locals need to do more of that also!
Christmas time in Nashville is an extra special time and there are events happening all over the city. The crown jewel of the holiday season in Nashville is Gaylord Opryland Hotel, which is celebrating “A Country Christmas.”
Remember the historic flood in May of 2010 where the Cumberland River forced its way into this hotel?
Until recently, we had not visited the hotel since it reopened to the public last year. We have really missed out, and you have too if you haven’t been lately!
Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure of dining at the Old Hickory Steak House, inside the Delta of the hotel. I can now add this to the list of “must experience places” to dine in Nashville.
Words cannot describe the excellent meal and fabulous service. The evening was so enjoyable that we loaded up family and friends and visited again last Wednesday night. This time, we dined at “Fuse,” which had a great selection of items from a casual and less formal menu.
And we’ll be there yet another time during “A Country Christmas” on Christmas Day evening. The hotel will still be in full swing, and as we found in years past, less crowded. You should go too!
In these uncertain and delicate times, Gaylord is to be commended and applauded for not surrendering to “politically correct” protocol and staying with the “Country Christmas” theme without apology. Can you imagine “A Country Holiday” or worst yet, “A Southern United States Holiday?”
Thank you Gaylord for your presence here, and especially for “A Country Christmas.”
Now, on to scenes from the hotel. Remember, I am not a professional photographer by any means, so you are encouraged to visit and see for yourself!
