On August 11, 2006, Elias and I flew to Nashville, Tn. for a long weekend together. It was wonderful considering we are NOT country music affecianados. I got a good package deal, flight, Marriott Hotel and rental car for four days.
We visited the Jack Daniel's Distillery. It was an experience as they still take you through the original plant. The picture is one of their old firetrucks. No free samples....only lemonade or coffee but we had a great time. Our guide, Joe was great. Every sentence ended with that good Jack Daniel's whiskey!
We also visited the Opryland Hotel which is a city unto itself. We took a 15 minute boat ride through the hotel...yes...I said through the hotel! It is inside a huge glass dome.
Needless to say, we walked a lot, drank a lot and were very merry!
