SHOP MY GAYLORD OPRYLAND LOOK:

We have almost made it to the weekend, woohoo! If y’all saw my Instagram stories from a few weeks ago, you know that I was in Nashville with my photographer, Mary Kate and my assistant, Noelle. We went for a quick little work/girls’ trip, and it was great to have a little getaway!

It’s no secret that I love every Gaylord resort I’ve visited. Find my post from Gaylord Rockies here. These resorts are always so gorgeous, and the staff are super friendly and helpful. Gaylord Opryland in Nashville is no exception to that.

I’ve been to this resort several times prior to this girls’ trip but honestly, you can always find something new to love about these resorts each time you visit! Whether it’s a couples trips, a family trip, or a girls’ trip, we’ve had a blast every time, and there is something for everyone!

We stayed in a suite with a double queen atrium view room, a king atrium room and an attached parlor in the middle. This is the usual room we stay in each time we come because it offers plenty of room for the entire family, and it’s all attached to each other.

We usually bring the entire family including my mom and sister and her husband and their kiddos, so it’s nice to have plenty of sleeping space and room for the kiddos and their early bedtimes and yet a separate space for the adults to watch a movie after the kids go to bed.

The parlor has a murphy bed in too, so it’s great for even more added space! It also has a large sectional, a couple chairs, a fireplace and a full sized dining room table and butler’s pantry. In addition to their spacious rooms and beautiful atrium views, I’m sharing some of the best things to do at Gaylord while you’re visiting!

5 Things to Do at Gaylord Opryland

Try out the outdoor water slides at SoundWaves.

SoundWaves has something for everyone! We took Leighton here last summer, and everyone was able to find some stuff at the water park that they loved. They have a great area for young kids, lazy rivers, a tidal wave pool and a rock climbing wall. But, they’ve also got some huge water slides that are perfect for the adrenaline junky in your group as well!

Rent a Cabana and lounge by the pool indoors or out or visit the lazy river.

On this particular trip, this is exactly what we did! We lounged by the pool, chatted, and enjoyed some yummy snacks and drinks. It was the perfect way to spend a hot afternoon!

Ride the delta boats around the hotel.

These Mississippi-style flatboats take you on a leisurely ride around the waters in the Atrium at the resort. They give you a fun little history on the hotel and loads of information about different parts of the resort. Every time I take Leighton, we always add this to our list

Try out some amazing food at their many dining options.

If you’re looking for a place that is more or less totally self-contained, Gaylord Opryland is it! There are so many dining options. Some of my favorites include Old Hickory Steakhouse, The Falls Bar & Lounge, Cascades American Cafe and the Delta Marketplace. They literally have everything you need here. It is so nice to go to a resort that has everything!

Grab some ice cream and check out the beautiful gardens in the atrium.

The atrium is such a cool place. You’ll absolutely feel like you’re in another world. There are all kinds of various plants, water features, etc. You’ll love walking around down here. Grab some ice cream or another treat from the Delta Marketplace and roam around taking in all the sights.

If y’all are in the Nashville area, or if you’re planning a trip to Nashville, I cannot recommend Gaylord Opryland enough! The kind people over there have actually given me an amazing deal to share with y’all!

If y’all are Tennessee residents, rates for y’all are already deeply discounted which is amazing! But, if you’re NOT a resident, you can get 20% off. They’ve also offered me some discounts for y’all for the SoundWaves Experience Package:

  1. Our daughter lives in Nashville, she lived in Germantown and her apartment was hit by the Tornado in March while she was sleeping. The last time we visited was to help her move again. I would love to win a stay at Opryland to visit her and have some fun while we are there instead of her needing our help!

  2. We love visiting Gaylord Opryland! There is so much for the whole family to do. Soundwaves and the Delta Riverboat are some of our families favorites.

    1. I have never been to Nashville! It’s been on our to do list for as long as I can remember! This place look amazing, definitely family friendly too, my kids would love it!

  3. We used to go to the Gaylord Opryland hotel every year for our anniversary when they had the special buy one night get one night free and they did away with that. I really miss going there I hope I win this for us to go for our anniversary

  4. We stayed there last year and really enjoyed the trip! It was too cold to swim outside, but the indoor SoundWaves was a blast! My son loved the surfing practice!

  5. I would not be using the water park being disabled, however if this joint has a sauna I would be in paradise. My wife and I want to return to Nashville for another visit without kids this time.

  6. We’re tired of quarantine/lockdown and ready to get back out and have fun. This would be a great place for family quality time away from home.

  7. Wow! This looks like so much fun! 1st I would be excited about going to Nashville since I’ve never been. 2nd I indoor/outdoor water resorts! Sounds so relaxing and I definitely need to chilax for a bit!

  8. I relocated to West Tennessee One year ago and due to settling in and Covid we haven’t been able to explore our great State visiting the area and the Hotel would be one of my first trips and just being able to view all its beauty would be great.

  9. I love Nashville– I live in East Tennessee and we have what I would like to think of as a “healthy rivalry” with our bigger cousin. Every time I visit I try to go to the Opryland hotel, but I have never had a chance to actually stay there. It’s a super cool place. SoundWaves sounds rad!

  10. We love the Gaylord Opryland. We drive up and spend the day there a few times a year. We have also stayed there several times. It is a nice getaway. We have not checked out Soundwave yet. The kids would love that.

  11. OMGosh, This looks so relaxing!! I need this getaway. I would love to ride the delta boats, eat ice cream while walking around and taking in all the scenery. I would get a massage, I would lay by the pool, read a book and totally love this place!! I already know!!

  12. I stayed at Gaylord a few years back for a week at Christmas time. It was out of this world. Anytime between Thanksgiving and Christmas is a Must.

  13. I love that it just looks so relaxing and inviting and a place where my teen and I can do a mini getaway hopefully when some of this stay at home lets up some as our state is still one being quarantined if we visit certain states. Hope fully if we wre to be lucky enough for this, it is good for a while.

  14. Nashville has been on my bucket list forever. I love the looks of this hotel and it is already marked down as a place to stay when I go there, hopefully, in the near future.
