The Thousand Trails campground we stayed at near Nashville was the first park we really struggled with the internet. As you know, it’s our lifeline. We have to have the internet to
We knew we needed more than a day to discover all that Nashville had to offer so we booked an Airbnb as well as some tickets to the Opry at the Ryman.
Ben had a few meetings so I went to the temple while he was out, then we met up after and went to lunch with the sweetest southern gentleman named Mickey. He took us to Bonefish and we had the most incredible Bam Bam shrimp I have ever had in my life.
Grand Ole Opry
That night we splurged a bit and booked tickets to the Grand Opry. I told Ben that Toby Keith was the highlight artist and he got really excited. I had no idea he liked Toby so much!
I really enjoyed what they do at the Ryman. They have a performer come out and play two songs and then move on to the next. It was fun to see so many different acts and different talents.
Toby Keith did not disappoint. He was even asked to come out again with another singer. We were both surprised how little security there was. Someone actually went right up to Toby and tried to give him a present (?) He didn’t take it.
The next day we had about a half day before heading back to the campground. We heard about the Gaylord and decided to check it out. It was a HUGE indoor hotel. Since it was so cold outside, Ben and I were not complaining. It was incredible inside! An indoor river and everything.
We spend about a half day there but didn’t participate in any activities. There was ice sculptures, a water park, and even skating. We spend our budget the night before so we just decided to admire from afar.
We did enjoy walking around and seeing all the decorations!
On our way out of town, we stopped by a replica of the Parthenon. Really crazy how big it is, just sitting in a park. It’s some what close to downtown but felt more residential.
We didn’t go inside as it cost, but just walked around. It was good… Not sure I would go back but it was cool to see!
Change Of Plans
Back at the RV park, the internet wasn’t any better. Rather than suffer through it longer, we decided to head closer to Atlanta. We have some big plans for the Holidays so stay tuned!
