Overnight in Nashville

Jump to last reply

I'm considering a long overnight in Nashville to take advantage of some great hotel and airfare opportunities. I'd hope to stay at Marriott's Union Station.

If I arrive Saturday around 9:30 am, I think I would have time to make it to hotel and then high-tail it near Vanderbilt for Belmont Mansion and a walk through Vanderbilt to Parthenon to see inside before it closes at 4:30. Then I figured I could have a late afternoon wander and an evening exploring some of the downtown bars and restaurants.

Sunday I figured I could get up early to make the Ryman Auditorium and CMHOF Museums that open at 9. I could then go to Frist at opening at 1 pm and view until maybe 4 or 4:30, when it would be time to head back to the hotel and catch a 6:30 flight.

I'll be back in 2013 for a conference, where the hotel will probably be the Gaylord. Thinking therefore I could leave that and the Opry until then. If I had another day I would have loved to have visited Belle Meade and Cheekwood Garden, but it doesn't seem possible on so short a trip.

Does this itinerary make sense? Rushing things too much? Am I not having enough time in the hotel? Missing something major?
