Gaylord Opryland resort & convention center
As strange as it may sound, a large portion of visitors that venture to Gaylord Opryland Resort don’t actually stay at the hotel. In fact, the hotel welcomes non-hotel guests to stroll through and enjoy their one of a kind venue, which includes 9 acres of lush indoor gardens and cascading waterfalls, a river boat and giant water fountain, restaurants, bars, and so much more! Gaylord Opryland is also positioned across the street from the Grand Ole Opry, Opry Mills Mall and the General Jackson showboat! You can easily hit several high notes of Music City within this little area. If you have a large group and y’all are looking to make a splash, you can also visit SoundWaves, an upscale water park featuring 4 acres of combined indoor and outdoor water attractions! SoundWaves is primarily open to hotel guests, but non-hotel guests can gain access to the park by reserving a party room for 6 to 30 people.
