This is an amazing park! It has something for all ages! I have two girls age 10 and 4. They both have such a blast when we go! Plus it's a great place to meet parents from the local schools and Daycares around town.

Grand Ole Opry

The Grand Ole Opry, an American Icon and Nashville's number one attraction, is known for creating one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences for audiences of all ages. It's where unforgettable moments happen every week...moments like the night Trace Adkins revealed a tweet inviting his pal Blake Shelton to become a member of the Opry. With country music's new stars, superstars, and legends live on stage, you never know what'll happen next. See the show that made country music famous.

Because my wife and I toured Nashville over the last two days I decided not to pay the 27 dollar entrance fee but just did the above stated things here. I had paid enough in entrance fees the last couple of days but got a sense of what this place was all about by touring some of the building without doing the guided tour. I walked the grounds and shopped in the Gift Shop. It is certainly a grand place were big name acts plus up & coming stars play on this stage. I enjoyed it here by just doing what I did here today without costing me a dime expect the cost of a t-shirt to take home back to Canada.

Hermitage Golf Course

Reviewed By BloggerLinda - Johns Creek, Georgia

They have two courses, The President's Reserve and The General's Retreat. Both are very nice courses. The Reserve is spread out with nice, wide fairways with little water. It's the easier of the two. Since it was added later, it is secluded. There are restrooms as well as a half way house. Has many elevated greens. We preferred The Retreat. A much more scenic course with lot of water. The issue is that it is more of a links course. There were many people yelling "Fore" because their ball was headed into another fairway. Restrooms on the course and the halfway house is in the club house. All carts have GPS systems. We stayed in some of there new two bedroom two bath cottages. They were a great deal. They have a sitting room, kitchenette, fridge, coffee maker and each room has two queen beds and an adequate bathroom with a shower. There is a putting green and fire pit right behind the cottages. It's a 30 minute ride into town or ride share $40 one way. Since we played both days there, it made sense to stay there. Would do that again.

Long Hunter

Reviewed By AllisonCW - Nashville, Tennessee

My husband and I took our dog hiking at Long hunter state park. We did the 4 mile day loop which was very nice. It was mostly shaded which was great on a hot day. There were areas where you went along the water and crossed little streams. It was a relatively flat dirt path most of the way with a little bit of up-and-down and some rocks and roots. The trail was well marked. We sat on a huge rock and looked at the lake below at the halfway point which was nice. The volunteer trail was 5.5 miles each way which was a little bit longer than we wanted to go. Definitely worthwhile!

We have enjoyed Cedar Creek Fun Center for years.
This year we have played golf, driven the cars and used the batting cages.
Everything works well. The family that runs the place are accommodating.
A good place to have a fun time. Fun time for everyone in the crew.

Historic Rock Castle

Reviewed By 82lelandp - Hendersonville, Tennessee

The draw is the historic home made out of local rock quarried near by but there is much more to the visit. The house sits like a beacon overlooking Old Hickory Lake and the grounds draw you in to another time. You must tour the house, walk the trails and experience the peace and quiet! In addition to the history, we have enjoyed the local songwriter's nights, Nashville Symphony and a recent fish fry. Don't miss the Danile Smith Days or any of the period events held throughout the year. You might even catch a wedding or music video!

JuRo Stables

Reviewed By Crystal D - Livingston, Louisiana

My husband and I went on this trail ride today and it was very nice. All of the horses were well cared for and well-fed. Even the older horses had good weight on them. None appeared nervous or flighty. All were calm and easy-going. This is coming from someone who horses just don't seem to gee with. The guides were great, trails and horses excellent for an inexperienced rider. The only thing I would be careful of is that there is apparently an unwritten 200 pound weight limit. This could be an issue, especially if you're only in town for a few days, got a Groupon and they don't have a sturdy enough horse available.

Since it's a rescue and the guides are volunteers, all proceeds go to taking care of the horses, so that alone should be cause enough to go. And don't forget to tip the guides!

We stopped in this park during our stay in the attached resort.
In my opinion 36 US$ (we got a Camping discount ticket for 25 US$) plus parking fee to access the structure is definitely a lot of money, considering that you get... nothing

You have to bring your towels, your water, everything, and we found quite a few sunbeds that were quite dirty (one of our towels had to be washed at high temperature to be actually clean)

To be said that the lifeguards are VERY professional and VERY attentive, controlling everything and being very very strict, which is, for e, very good and important.

The place (visited on August 20th) was quite crowded, with some pretty rude people as well.

Windtree Golf Club

Windtree Golf Club is widely regarded as Nashville, Tennessee's finest-conditioned public golf course. Meticulous attention to playing conditions provides golfers of all ability levels pristine fairways and smooth, true greens for a spectacular round of golf every time. While the course is located only minutes from downtown, in Mt. Juliet, it couldn’t be father from the hustle and bustle of life in the city. Panoramic views make this breathtaking course a remarkably scenic and quiet escape from everyday life. Golfers of all abilities will appreciate this wonderfully playable, top-conditioned course.

Reviewed By Chipperhigh2 - Okemos, Michigan

Attended a family golf outing. There were eight of us playing Windtree. They were having 2 big golf outing that day. Most of the course was in good condition. The greens could use some work, but that was caused by the number of players using the course. There is some water and some sand on the course, but not in excess.
