The Ramble: A Vacation in NashVegas!

A great mini-vacation to Nashville was in the cards after the craziness of my corporate retreat.  The boy flew up and we had three days of pure tourism in Music City USA.  We are both thankful to my cousin for letting us crash at her house after our days of running around the city.

From the Ryman Auditorium to Jacks BBQ to the Country Music Hall of Fame,  we had a full day downtown enjoying all of the sights.  I loved how we were able to leisurely enjoy everything that downtown had to offer.  We went into Hatch Show Printers and bought a great poster that I can't wait to frame and find a spot for it in our place.

The next day we went to the Jack Daniels Distillery which after a bit of a drive was definitely worth the trip.  After a great free tour, we bought some commemorative bottles - one we were able to etch something personal for the boy.

We ended our trip at the Grand Ole Opry and the Gaylord Opryland Hotel.  A fun backstage tour that really made us feel like we were walking through the steps of the stars who get to perform on that famous stage.  After the tour, we stopped into the Gaylord Opryland Hotel for lunch and a cool little boat cruise that takes you through a part of the hotel.  We loved it. 

A great end to a little vacation.
