    KOA Nashville

    August 19, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 93 °F

    A very modern campground with all sorts of amenities. Lots of games to play and very nicely kept grounds. Most expensive campground on our trip, but a nice treat for sure. Maddie and Patrick loved the pool and bouncy pillow. There was live music at the pool, too! We are in music city so it makes sense.Read more

    October 19, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 66 °F

    So here we are... country music, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Grand Ole Opry, all the music you could want. To make sure we took advantage of this opportunity to hear and see Nashville, we called the Grand Ole Opry to get tickets for tomorrow night. Our hopes were high that we could get good seats and Katy, the very nice lady on the phone, found the best seats available for us.... wait for it... standing room! Oh well, Lord knows we tried.

    We'll just make lemonade out of lemons and visit one of the fine venues tomorrow night for dinner and music.

    We were tired and considered eating in the trailer this evening, but there was a restaurant right next to the KOA, the Cock of the Walk. Heather had seen that they had baked potatoes and that sounded pretty good. So we walked on over and had potatoes and salad. They also brought us pickled onions, corn bread, and a very tasty and zesty slaw, which Heather is certain had collards in it.

    All in all, the KOA is nice and our spot is good, even though it is a bit of a walk to the bathrooms. Gordon was mesmerized by the big earth movers noisily tearing up the swimming pool.

    Exploring Nashville

    June 26, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    We decided to spend an extra day in Nashville at the KOA campground. They had a shuttle that took us downtown to where the "action" was and we had a great time. We did a backstage tour of the Ryman Auditorium, home of the "Grand Ole Opry". It was a great tour with a tour guide who had story after story. We have a new appreciation for the country music legends. We enjoyed walking on Broadway St. going into the bars and listening to some great talent...those who are trying to "make it" here in Nashville I suppose. We especially liked the Jimmy Buffet Margarita Ville bar. They had a great female singer. We also enjoyed the famous "Tootsies". This has a back alley entrance from the Ryman Auditorium where performers would slip out to while waiting to go on stage. The story goes that several never made it back to the Ryman to perform. We had dinner at Pucketts, a recommendation by the campground staff as well as Betsy. We met some nice people and enjoyed the southern ribs.Read more
