Trip Journal

Spring is a great time to visit Nashville. We have a lot planned – Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill are just two of the Country Superstars we’ll see at the Grand Ole Opry Show. Check back for some of our  photos and join us next year when we depart April 4, 2025. This trip always sells out.

April 12, 2024 Friday

An excellent day, windy sunny and mid 60’s. Tonight we’ll arrive early in Mount Vernon IL at the Hilton Hotel. Everything is green and the tress have their Spring blossoms.

April 13, 2024 Saturday

It was sunny all day and we hit 78 degrees. We stopped at the Kentucky Whitehaven Welcome Center in Paducah and got some good pictures. In downtown Nashville it was full of people on the street riding their party buses and pedal bars. We had lunch and there was live music everywhere. Later we checked into the Opryland hotel and had time to walk around and see the beautiful landscaped garden and water features. Tonight at the Grand Ole Opry show we saw the Opry Square Dancers, Dailey & Vincent, Connie Smith, Josiah and the Bonnevilles, Gary Mule Deer, Vince Gill, Nate Smith and Carrie Underwood. Great seats at a great show.

April 14, 2024 Sunday

Sunday morning in downtown Nashville is a lot quieter than yesterday. On our city tour we saw the state capitol, downtown, and some of the elaborate homes of the country music stars. We had lunch and a show on the General Jackson Showboat. We went back at the hotel for a rest before our evening dinner show at the Nashville Nightlife Dinner Theater.

April 15, 2024 Monday

This morning we checked out of the hotel and went downtown to the Country Music Hall of Fame. It’s sunny and already 76 degree by 11:00 am. We drive to Clarksville for lunch and tonight we’ll stay at the La Quinta in Effingham Illinois.

April 16, Tuesday

A calm morning drive, but a windy trip in the afternoon. We arrived home safely and on time with just some light showers.
