Leap Into 2020 with an Educational Trip to Tennessee

Spring break is right around the corner, and if you’re looking to take the children on an adventure that will make memories they will be talking about for years to come, then Nashville should be on your radar. This leap year marks a host of activities in this southern city that will appeal to every age.

First off, the National Museum of African American Music is opening with a broad exploration of more than 50 genres of music. The new 5th and Broadway development is the newest local hot spot for retail and culinary experiences that’s sure to tick off the box for travelers looking to feed their hungry appetites and find something special as a memento.

The Tennessee State Museum honors Tennessee’s 1920s decision to be the 36th state to ratify the 19th amendment to our Constitution allowing us gals the right to vote. Over at the Country Music Hall of Fame, there’s the Taylor Swift Education Center with exhibitions of the lives and careers of strong southern women making a difference with their music, such as Minnie Pearl and Dolly, of course.

As for accommodations, there’s the Gaylord Opryland Resort, which is absolutely gorgeous and everything guests have come to expect from the brand. Here visitors will enjoy over 2,800 guest rooms, three fully decked out gardens with three story twin waterfalls and over 8,000 tropical plants all enclosed with shopping and culinary delights under a nine- acre glass roof wonderland. The Delta, one of the three well-appointed atriums, is perhaps the most extravagant. There it is situated close to all sorts of treats, such as a Haagen-Dazs Creamery, Paisano’s Pizzeria and kid-friendly shops. There’s also a flat boat ride complete with Opryland’s live ducks and a nightly fountain show.

The property boasts 174 suites, including living and optional connecting bedrooms perfect for families. Additionally, there are five presidential suites that offer a dining room, catering kitchen, den and five bathrooms so the whole crew can enjoy their stay with cousins and grands! The resort also boasts the status of being the largest non-casino hotel in the United States.

Activities abound from taking in the beautiful scenery of Tennessee herself to spending a day at the SoundWave waterpark, which just happens to be honored as one of the 12 Best Indoor Waterpark Resorts this year.

 So this year, put Tennessee on your travel itinerary. You won’t be disappointed.
