Reviews
General Jackson Showboat Lunch & Dinner Cruises
This was the best by far. We were seated at table #2 which was right by the corner of the stage. We got to see the entire show without anyone being in front of us and it was great. The entertainment was great and the dinner was fantastic. This was a special trip for my nephew who has been in a wheel chair since birth. He is now 42 years old and this was his first visit to tennessee. I wanted to do something special for him while we were there since his parents gave him the trip as a christmas present. I could not have asked for a better time nor could he. It was a surprise up until 10 minutes before we pulled into the parking lot. He had no clue what we were doing. So from the mongeau and labare family, thank you for making that day special for him.

Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
We had a great time at the opry!! We were in the balcony section, but were center stage, so had great views, and they also have 3 large screens so you won't miss anything!! I used the screens to get closeups with my camera! The show is about 2.5 hours with a short intermission. We bought soft drinks and nachos, the prices were about average for the venue. Advice: pick up your tickets and do your souvenir shopping in the morning- the opry shop is rather small and was jammed after the show. When you go to get your tickets, park at opry mills mall by the aquarium restaurant to avoid paying for parking, it is within walking distance to the ticket shop and opry store. We shopped that morning, as we wanted time to pick our gifts. Also, take a shuttle if your hotel provides one, or you can take a private shuttle to avoid the traffic and the price of parking.

Ryman Auditorium Self-Guided Tours
I walked in the building and instantly felt the presence of all those wonderful stars that have gone on. Then to actually see the stage where so many great performers stood. It was joy beyond words. I would recommend to anyone to take the time to visit. I now live in nashville and it is still a huge thrill to go and see.
