All-inclusive 3-1/2 hour tour of Nashville's most popular attractions   Cost: $42.00/person
Discover Nashville is a fully narrated tour of the best that Nashville has to offer. Ride in comfort while an entertaining tour guide gives us the inside scoop on Nashville's top spots and famous landmarks. We'll get off the bus for a self-guided tour of the Ryman Auditorium, known as the "Mother Church of Country Music," a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and a tour of the Parthenon, a full size replica of the ancient original in Athens, Greece. Visiting the Parthenon is free, and Discover Nashville includes admission to both the Ryman and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
Pick-up and drop-off for Discover Nashville is our hotel lobby. Buy your ticket BY AUGUST 23 to secure your spot, and then simply show up in time for the bus to pull away from the lobby promptly at 1:30 p.m. There's no food or drink on the bus, so you'll need to eat lunch before the tour. The bus will bring us back to the hotel between 5:00 and 5:30 p.m.
The Cheek family of Nashville developed Maxwell House coffee and then sold the popular blend in 1928 for forty million dollars. With the proceeds Leslie Cheek and his wife Mabel built a 100-acre estate inspired by 18th century English country houses. Today the Cheekwood mansion contains an impressive permanent collection famous for American art, and both the house and gardens display ever-changing traveling exhibitions of the highest quality.
Our 2013 Users Conference coincides with Cheekwood's presentation of LIGHT, an outdoor art installation by acclaimed British artist Bruce Munro. Hundreds of miles of glowing optic fiber will transform Cheekwood’s gardens into "an enchanting, dream-like landscape under the night sky."
We'll meet at 7:15 p.m. and carpool in a caravan to Cheekwood. The Cheekwood outing does not include dinner, but you should have plenty of time for dinner on your own between the end of the afternoon tour and meeting to leave for Cheekwood.
