Exclusive Vacation Packages Available in Nashville

Monday, April 6th, 2009

Nashville, Tennessee is a popular place to visit, whether you are a major country music fan or are just looking for something a little different to do for a few days.  Recently, Nashville Sightseeing has started to offer several vacation packages designed to keep Nashville’s visitors entertained and informed throughout their stay in Music City, one of which is bound to be a match for your particular needs.

The Music City Weekend Vacation Package provides a wonderful balance between activities devoted exclusively to music and those that cover the overall sightseeing experience.  When you arrive on Friday night, you will enjoy an evening with the talented stars of country music at the Grand Ole Opry.  Depending on the day, you can expect to see new and rising stars or legendary performers of the past and present.  Then, on Saturday morning, you will set out on the Nashville City Tour where you will be introduced to Nashville’s most famous sights before being let loose to do some shopping and exploring on your own.

Saturday night is reserved for a ride aboard the General Jackson for a dinner cruise and show.  “Country Music USA” is the show that is currently running, and it can be seen from mid-March through mid-November.   Accommodations during your weekend stay will be provided by either the Sheraton Music City or Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Resort, and packages can be reserved with or without hotel pick-up for the Friday night Opry performance.

To see Nashville from a different perspective, consider booking the Rhinestone Cowboy Music City Weekend Vacation Package.  On your first evening in town, you will start out with a driving tour through downtown before you go and check out some of the hottest clubs in the area.  Enjoy a complimentary drink and settle in at Legends Corner, your honky tonk headquarters for the night.

On Saturday morning, you will take a tour of the homes of some of country music’s biggest stars including Dolly Parton, Martina McBride, and Trisha Yearwood.  With a drive through the neighborhoods of the rich and famous, you will get a taste of the places these stars call home.  Finally, on Saturday night you are in for a treat with the “A Cowboy Town Wild West Show & Campfire Supper.”  In between activities, you will relax in style at the Sheraton Music City.

Nashville by Day or by Night

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Enjoy the sights and sounds of one of America’s greatest cities: Nashville, home of the Grand Ole Opry and the famous Music Row area that houses hundreds of businesses related to country, gospel, and contemporary Christian music.  Legions of stars currently call Nashville home, including country music greats Dolly Parton, Martina McBride, and Trisha Yearwood.

While you are in the area, be sure to check out the Nashville City Tour, which hits several of the city’s landmarks in a three-hour span of time.  It gives a wonderful and complete overview of historic Nashville and the major landmarks of the city and includes trips to Music Row, the State Capitol, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and the famous Ryman Auditorium, former home of the Grand Ole Opry.  The tour ends perfectly with a dose of live country music and refreshments at one of the downtown Honky Tonks.

For a crash course on Nashville’s nightlife, check out the Nashville Nights Tour where you can watch Nashville come alive at night as you visit several clubs on Honky Tonk Row and enjoy live music and a complimentary drink.  What better way to truly grasp the spirit of the city than to embrace it yourself with a night out on the town?

Country music is not the only reason to visit this great city, however.  The General Jackson is the world’s largest showboat and its cruises are among Nashville’s most popular activities.  Enjoy a lunch or dinner cruise and show, which lasts about 3 to 4 hours and provides for a fun and entertaining time for adults and kids of all ages.

There are also a variety of other tour options, from trolley tours to a Jack Daniels Distillery Tour and everything in between.  For more on this great city and to book tours and activities in the area, visit www.nashvillesightseeing.com.

When you travel to Nashville, one of the first things on your to-do list should be booking a trip on the General Jackson Showboat.This is an excellent nighttime activity to do with the family, and a great option is the General Jackson Dinner Cruise & Show.The showboat is tremendous, at 300 feet long, and there is no shortage of things to do on board.

Another option is the lunch cruises, which feature performances by the Peking Acrobats and these are a great idea if you have children.A visit to either the Nashville Wax Museum or the Willie Nelson Museum is included and takes place before the cruise.

This is a fantastic way to spend the evening, and everyone in the family  will thoroughly enjoy themselves.I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone who is ready to relax and be entertained.
