Opryland: A Country Christmas

opryland hotel

After walking through “Ice!” at Opryland we had to make our way over to the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center to walk around and gawk at the 2 million Christmas lights hung around the 9 acres of indoor-gardens in the enormous resort.

We met up with our friends Jay and Emily, or Jamily which is how I like to refer to them. The four of us spent the evening walking around, watching families take a million photos with numerous DreamWorks characters spread out around the resort, drooling over every restaurant, exploring the empty convention rooms and getting lost among the many gardens and observatories.

There's even a river boat ride that takes you through the hotel!

Opryland does an incredible job turning their entire resort into a magical wonderland. Besides the indoor attractions, there are even more lights outside and a giant free nativity scene. Of course the Radio City Rockettes perform all season at the Grand Ole Opry and too many other performances to list are also happening throughout the holidays.

If it wasn’t so outrageously expensive then we would make a night out of it, get a room and enjoy the lights from our balcony…maybe one day.

Hope you are all having a very Merry Christmas Eve! Xoxo

Cheers!
