Celebrity Homes in Nashville

Friday, August 16th, 2013

nashville homeFor those of us who consider ourselves pop culture connoisseurs, the Homes of the Stars Tour in Nashville is a definite must.  This driving tour gives travelers the opportunity to drive through some of the most elite neighborhoods that many popular country music stars call home.

Many country stars live in this great city, including a personal favorite, Martina McBride. This tour allows passengers to see her house as well as the homes of Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn, and Trisha Yearwood.  The people of America have become so intrigued by the lives of today’s celebrities, and this tour satisfies that desire to take a closer look into the lives of the icons of generations past and present. 

Luckily, this tour includes free hotel pick-up, so there’s no need to pull yourself out of crazy fan mode to concentrate on driving back to the hotel. This tour should make anyone’s short list while they are in Nashville. It’s only about three hours long, but it covers much ground so you definitely don’t want to miss it!

 

Happy star-struck travels!

Y’all… We’re Taking it Behind the ABC Nashville Scenes

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

In case you haven’t heard, ABC recently produced this amazing prime-time drama named Nashville.

Who are we kidding? Of course you’ve heard of it! Even if you’ve literally been living under a rock, chances are at least one of the tunes from the show has seeped into your little hideout. The series just wrapped its first season a couple months ago, and fans are already anticipating this fall’s premier. It’s got a pretty good storyline, y’all, and it highlights all the effortless beauty of Music City. Don’t worry; they don’t really say “y’all” that much.

While you’re waiting for the second season to begin, allow us to recommend taking a trip to Nashville and experiencing the real deal: Music Row, all the Honky Tonks along Broadway, the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry and the list goes on. Seriously folks, this ain’t your mama’s rodeo.

The nightlife is vibrant, and there’s never a dull moment in the city, especially if you check out our new ABC Nashville TV Show Experience Tour. Explore real-life filming locations featured in the show. Visit the homes of the main characters. Go inside the Bluebird Café to find out why playing at this classic venue is a songwriter’s dream gig. Learn which famous artists got their start in this spot and why the lines to get in the door are always so long. The tour only operates on Sundays, but this would be a great way to start your week.

Stellar 2009 Lineup at the Grand Ole Opry

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

American Express Travel - New York - California
What do Carrie Underwood, Trace Adkins, Dierks Bentley, and Darryl Worley have in common? Not only are they mega-stars, but they are all scheduled to grace the stage of the Grand Ole Opry this season. The Opry has a killer lineup this year, and country music fans who can definitely should make it a priority to get over to Nashville to catch a show.


Tuesday Night Opry is back in session, and several notable performers will be appearing, including Charlie Daniels, Diamond Rio, and Craig Morgan. The Opry also recently kicked off a new Thursday night series called Opry Country Classics, which showcases some of the most groundbreaking country music that paved the way for country artists and made the genre as well-loved and appreciated as it is today.

Since its start as a radio show in 1925, the Grand Ole Opry – originally known as WSM Barn Dance – has been a major launching off point for country music performers, giving birth to many of today’s brightest stars. Many performers feel that they owe their start in the business to the Opry, and in a lot of ways they are right. The platform that the venue provides for artists is unparalleled and the exposure they are given is hard to duplicate anywhere else. Many a life has been transformed by experiences on the famous stage, and I suspect that this will continue far into the future.

To secure tickets to the show of your choice, it is imperative that you book early. The Opry is a big seller among locals and visitors to Nashville, and the window of opportunity for getting tickets is pretty narrow. Regardless of when you decide to visit, it is sure to be an evening to remember. One of the best ways to secure tickets is through http://www.nashvillesightseeing.com or http://viptickets.us.

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.

Gatlinburg Getaway

Friday, February 6th, 2009

On the border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park lies the beautiful city of Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  This popular tourist destination draws a crowd because of its numerous attractions, both natural and man-made.  Gatlinburg has the only ski resort in all of Tennessee, called Ober Gatlinburg, which doubles as an amusement park.  It is also home to a variety of shows, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, and other family-friendly attractions.  As an added bonus, the city is situated near Pigeon Forge, making it easy to access Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country.

In addition to the assortment of activities mentioned above, visitors to Gatlinburg might be interested to learn the haunted history of the area.  On the Gatlinburg Haunted Ghost Tour you get the chance to discover the supernatural side of this part of the world, with a stroll down the streets and alleys leading to haunted hotels and buildings located downtown.  You will be entertained from start to finish as you listen to stories about a murder committed at a famous hotel there and the ghosts who still haunt it.  This trip into the unexplained lasts 90 minutes and the time will fly by quickly as you get lost in the guide’s animated and informative narrative.

Another way to walk the area is on a scenic hike.  The Homestead Hike from Gatlinburg will take you back in time as you explore the most historically significant parts of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, navigating through forgotten homesteads and learning about some Cherokee lore and Appalachian tall tales.  Throughout the trek, your guide educates you on the way of life of the Native Americans back when the land was being settled, before the introduction of grocery stores and pharmacies.  This is a fantastic activity for school field trips, corporate retreats, and religious groups and gives everyone added insight into the history and inner workings of life before the conveniences of technology.

Gatlinburg should definitely make your short list of vacation destinations whether you decide to travel in the winter or when it is warmer outside.  For more information on how to get the most out of your stay, visit www.gatlinburgtours.net.
