Opryland Area Attractions

There's a lot to do nearby in the area known as "Music Valley" and formally the home of the Opryland theme park.

Right across the street from us you’ll find the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center which has a wealth of attractions, from an indoor river to a dancing waters light show, and numerous dining options. It is one of the largest hotels in the United States with over 2,700 rooms!


The recently opened Madame Tussauds Nashville wax museum features life-like wax figures of many country music and pop music icons. A few hundred yards down the road you’ll find the General Jackson Paddlewheel Showboat. The General Jackson is a great way to cruise the river while listening to some great music shows while having dinner.

Along Music Valley Drive you’ll find lots to do and lots eat. Watch a dinner show at the Nashville Nightlife Dinner Theater or enjoy a variety of different shows and musical events at the Texas Troubadour Theatre.

In the mood for some live country music? Next door to the Opryland Hotel you’ll find the heart of country music – the Grand Ole Opry House. The “Opry” is a country music institution that you’ve got to experience. And the great thing is it is within walking distance of the Willie Nelson and Friends Museum.

After the Opry you can head over to the World Famous Nashville Palace (next door to us) and listen to some of Nashville’s best live country music while enjoying your favorite food and beverages. Who knows, you might have even seen it before on the hit TV series “NASHVILLE” which filmed several episodes there.

You can also enjoy some great food and live music at our neighbor’s place called the Scoreboard Grill where they smoke their own BBQ right beside the building. And they have a great outdoor pavillion with lots of live music and the coldest beer in town!

And don’t forget the family owned and operated Caney Fork River Valley Grille where you can dine on catfish, steaks and several “wild game” offerings – all located within walking distance from our museum.

We’re family friendly so take the kids to Cooter’s Place, the “Dukes of Hazzard” themed retail store featuring the General Lee, props, and memorabilia from the popular TV show. They’re our next door neighbor! And don’t forget to stop by Grand Old Golf & Go Karts’ for some go cart racing and golf.

Finally, if you still have the energy then head over to Opry Mills Mall where you can shop – and eat – your heart out at dozens of places. Opry Mills is the largest outlet and value retail shopping destination in Tennessee, offering more than 200 shopping, dining and entertainment venues.

So, as you can see there are a lot of things to do in the Music Valley and Opryland area.


Music Valley has much more including many, many hotels and some of Nashville’s finest campgrounds including Two Rivers Campground and the Nashville KOA campground among others.

Hopefully you can make it to Nashville and visit us real soon!
