Embrace Winter’s Charm in Nashville’s Premier Destination
by Takara swoopes
As the chilly winds of winter sweep across the landscape, there’s a place where the excitement and warmth of Music City thrive unabated – the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville. Perfect for families, friend groups, or couples, this drivable winter haven offers an array of experiences that promise to make your winter getaway unforgettable.
Relax and Rejuvenate at Relâche Spa
At the heart of the resort’s allure is the Relâche Spa. Here, tranquility isn’t just a word; it’s an experience. With a wide array of treatments ranging from seasonal specials to rejuvenating massages, couples’ delights, and even CBD treatments, you’re sure to find the perfect way to recharge this winter. Luxurious facials, pampering pedicures, and more await in this serene oasis.
Speaking from personal experience, I found the spa services offered at Relâche Spa to be incredible. Offering both a steam and dry sauna, I enjoyed taking my time, enjoying both after an incredible 80-minute deep tissue massage.
Culinary Delights: A Gastronomic Journey
With over 17 dining options, your taste buds are in for a treat. Savor the smoky flavors of BBQ at Jack Daniel’s, or spice up your meal at Solario Cantina with its Mexican flair. For a more refined experience, Ravello offers a breezy Mediterranean atmosphere and delectable Italian cuisine – ideal for a romantic date or a family dinner. For those seeking an upscale dining experience, Old Hickory Steakhouse presents an intimate setting with views of lush waterways, a comprehensive wine list, and a menu boasting premium meats and seafood.
Breathtaking Atriums Offer Visitors a Tropical Escape
One of our favorite features of the beautiful resort is the tropical atrium temperature, irrespective of the outdoor chill. Spanning over nine acres and maintained at a cozy 72 degrees, these atriums are home to over 50,000 species of exotic plants and flowers. They are perfect for leisurely strolls, offering spectacular views and a sense of serene escapism.
SoundWaves: An Aquatic Extravaganza
SoundWaves, the resort’s upscale water attraction, offers a unique blend of music and aquatic fun. This 110,000 square-foot indoor area, kept at a pleasant 84 degrees, is a haven for water enthusiasts of all ages. From the lazy river and rapid river rides to the mega raft and the thrill of surfing on Nashville’s only double FlowRider®, the adventure never stops. Adults can enjoy their own pool and bar, while families can relish a variety of activities, including a full arcade room and a rock-climbing wall in the Bass-ment.
Say the words SoudWaves to any child in our family and their face will light up. Our four kids love this place- literally, it’s their favorite place to vacation (mind you, these are kids who grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii, and who have vacationed several times at Disney Aulani Resort)
Set Sail with Musical Entertainment
The General Jackson Showboat elevates your stay with year-round cruises. Enjoy first-class entertainment in the Victorian Theater, complete with delicious meals and unparalleled views of Nashville. It’s an experience that uniquely blends the city’s musical heritage with its riverfront beauty.
