Nashville, Tennessee, home of the Opry, is riding high as a getaway destination, having been named a top spot to visit by tastemakers as diverse as Travel + Lesiure, Fodor’s, and The New York Times. While there’s something in and around Music City for everyone, travelers with specific interests including country music, American history, family travel, and more can easily fill their days and nights in Nashville with activities related to those interests or try a little of everything from a show at the historic Ryman Auditorium to getting in the spirit (and the spirits) at Jack Daniel’s Distillery.
Of course we at the Opry maintain that country music’s most famous show fits in any itinerary. For those interested in family fun, the Opry offers the almost unheard of experience of three generations of artists performing on a single stage.
FROM OPRY STAFFERS & ARTISTS
For those with an interest in American history, there's the fact that the Opry is the world's longest running radio program and that every U.S. president from Richard Nixon to George W. Bush has visited the Opry House.
