The Opryland Resort with its 2882 rooms, tropical indoor gardens, waterfalls, and other extravagant features, was still decked out for Christmas. It was a 15 minute walk from our resort as was the 200 store Opry Mills Mall. You will be shocked to hear that we never spent one dollar, or $1.46 Canadian!
We used a l/2 price Groupon for a tour and wine tasting at Belle Meade Plantation, a world-renowned thoroughbred stud farm. Sea Biscuit and Secretariat can trace their bloodlines back to Belle Meade. Our next stop was at the unusual Parthenon which was built for the 1897 Centennial Exposition. The Parthenon and the 42 foot Athena statue are both full-scale replicas.
