We had such a great time exploring the Opryland hotel. My kids thought I was nuts when I suggested we go hang out there for the afternoon.. then they were begging to back the next day. We also enjoyed the Parthenon; being huge Percy Jackson fans that was a "must see." So many other great ideas here. Pinned.
