A little bit of that Yee-Haw and Honky Tonk in Music City!!
Music lovers, this trip is for you. Head to Music City with Special Journeys where we will immerse ourselves in everything Honky Tonk! So, make sure you pack your cowboy boots and get ready for a good time, ya'll!
We begin this trip to Music City with a ride on the General Jackson Showboat which is the quintessential Southern experience. Touted as one of Nashville's top tourist attractions, The General Jackson was named after another riverboat of the same name that was built in 1817. This 300-foot paddle wheel showboat will cruise along the Cumberland River offering beautiful views of the Nashville skyline. We will enjoy a delicious buffet meal and a wonderful show giving tribute to some of the best country artists in the business while aboard.
Our next stop will bring us to Nashville where we will immerse ourselves in everything Johnny Cash! We will enjoy the Ultimate Cash Experience which will include a private, guided tour of the Johnny Cash Museum. The museum is filled with the largest collection of memorabilia and artifacts from Johnny's life. We will walk through the life of the Man in Black, with interactive exhibits, films and more. There are over 25 of his famous costumes, handwritten notes, and some of June Carter's items as well. This special museum was curated with the help of Johnny's family, so it's a truly remarkable experience that is a must-see while in Music City.
The classic country music tour doesn't stop there! Located in the same building as the Johnny Cash Museum, we will journey upstairs to the Patsy Cline Museum. We will get a detailed look into the life of one of country music's leading ladies. You can watch a short film about Ms. Cline, view her personal artifacts and letters, as well as her iconic outfits. The museum begins the tour at the start of her life, you'll learn about her humble beginnings, and make our way through to learn about her rise to stardom. It's certainly a stop you can't miss if you're a true Patsy fan.
While on our tour of Nashville we will stop in and see a show at the Grand Ole Opry Theater, that's right, THE Grand Old Opry, which is a music venue dedicated to honoring country music and its history. A trip to Nashville wouldn't be complete without a visit to the theater to see some great country music. If you're a fan of country, we know you've heard of the Opry, which has been a staple of Nashville for decades. This is the place that 'made country music famous' after all! The biggest names in country music have played here, such as Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Garth Brooks, and so many more. While the exact line up for the date of our visit has not been announced yet, it promises to be an amazing show with great country music!
And to ensure that we get to take home a bit of the city with us, we'll stop on by Opry Mills to get some shopping done. Y 'all will have plenty of places to peruse for that perfect souvenir in this 1.2 million square foot shopping center. There are more than 200 retail stores on a single level, you'll find factory stores, name brands, and some local stores to round out a wonderful shopping experience.
And you can guarantee we will try out some of that Tennessee grub including biscuits, BBQ and fried chicken. YUM!
