Vacation Packages in Nashville

Let’s review the different vacation packages that this vibrant and lively city has to offer! 

Spa Packages

Resorts like Omni Nashville Hotel offer spa packages allowing you to relax and release all the stresses of everyday life. Omni offers mother-to-be massages, a southern belle aromatherapy massage, 10 different facial treatments, and salon services so you can indulge a little on your vacation. Another spa that comes highly recommended is Escape Nashville, where you can spend the entire day getting pampered in a beautifully decorated facility.

This package offering is ideal for romantic getaways to celebrate different occasions or simply a great way to get out of town for the weekend. What is better than relaxing at the spa with your partner with a couples massage followed by a romantic candle lit dinner at a delicious restaurant?

Bachelor and Bachelorette Party Packages

Bachelor and bachelorette parties are huge in Nashville. With one of the best southern nightlife scenes in the country, young adults flock to this city. The ladies can book a custom bachelorette package with Luxury Bachelorette, while the gentlemen can partner up with Bachelor Party Nashville for an all-inclusive local experience. Take a comedy bus tour, see a live show, go on a pub crawl, or book a party bike. Good news is, packages often include roomy accommodations, so your crew can all stick together.

Booking a package takes a lot of planning. We recommend taking the time to do extensive research on picking the right package. Also, to stay organized, consider creating a spreadsheet to keep all your plans in one place. 

Honeymoon or Anniversary Packages

Nashville vacation deals for honeymoons and anniversaries include lots of romantic options. Kick off your getaway with a private hot tub suite, or opt for a love & luxury package that comes with bottles of rose, chocolate covered strawberries, and late checkout — because who doesn’t love late checkout when you’re spending alone time with your boo? To top off your intimate experience, you can inquire with Nashville Ballon about custom hot air balloon packages!

What To Do

Enjoy the music

They don’t call Nashville the Music City for nothing! There are nearly 100 music venues offering a variety of genres for your listening pleasure. Two classic Nashville venues are the Grand Ole Opry and the Ryman Auditorium, but there are many more for you to pop into. For an intimate musical experience, head to The Blue Room at Third Man Records, a live entertainment venue designed by singer and songwriter Jack White. Additionally, you can venture over to Cannery Row, home to three great locations to soak in live music: Cannery Ballroom, Mercy Lounge, and The High Watt. Country music fans should be sure to tour the legendary Country Music Hall of Fame, while wine lovers can pregame with a wine tasting before watching a show at City Winery. 

Try the delicious food

Nashville ranks third on the list of the top U.S. cities for foodies to add to their bucket list. Starting off with what the city is known for,  hot chicken. Prince’s Hot Chicken put this local favorite dish on the map almost a century ago, and Hattie B’s spread hot chicken’s popularity to the masses. Although Hattie B’s Chicken has trickled into several parts of the country, the restaurant’s success wouldn’t have been such a hit without their home base in Nashville. Scared of long wait times? You can also have it delivered straight to your vacation rental.
For an authentic taste of Nashville, have a seat at Arnold’s Country Kitchen, which rotates their menu daily with Southern staples like fried catfish, country-fried steak, creamed corn, and fried apple. Or, since Nashville has a reputation for being the “Athens of the South” you can soak in the Greek vibes at Greko Street Food, serving up a menu of fresh charcoal-fired meats blended with imported ingredients straight from Greece.

Take in the culture 

You’ll find plenty of art galleries, botanical gardens, and museums to get cultured all throughout Nashville. Aside from Nashville’s Parthenon, which doubles as an art gallery, you can satisfy your creative curiosities at the Adventure Science Center and the Frist Art Museum. History buffs, on the other hand, will find delight in taking a tour of President Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage, the Belle Meade Plantation, and the Lotz House Civil War Museum. Other historic sites that guarantee a splendid afternoon include the Tennessee State Museum, the Cheekwood Estate & Gardens, and the Musicians Hall of Fame. You definitely won’t fall short of interesting places to go, even on a rainy day in Nashville. For a luxurious, over-the-top experience, be sure to stop by the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center right up the street from the Grand Ole Opry, which exudes all the best things about Nashville under one massive roof.

Live the nightlife

The city comes alive when the sun goes down and the neon lights go on. Nashville is known for its honky tonk bars, defined as “an establishment that contains at least one rockin’ stage, cold beverages, and a party that lasts all day, everyday.” If you’re not sure where to go, you can start along the Honky Tonk Highway with its peak hours between 10:00 am to 3:00 am. They weren’t kidding when they said all day, everyday. You can also check out Printers Alley, where you’ll find several lively bars, clubs, and speakeasies all within walking distance from one another. Just a few blocks away from Printers Alley is the big pink building known as Tootsies Orchid Lounge, a multi-story rooftop bar right across the street from Ryman Auditorium. The lounge features two live music stages and music memorabilia everywhere you look. If games and drinks are more your thing, you ought to visit Headquarters Beercade. The bar hosts trivia and bingo nights, in addition to the free vintage arcade games scattered all around the bar. Upon entry, you’ll be welcomed by a pink neon sign that says “don’t grow up, it’s a trap” suggesting you can unleash your childish side at the Beercade.

Next Stop, Nashville

Head to Nashville with your buddies for a final hurrah, or treat your lover to a spa weekend. We guarantee that a vacation package could make life a lot easier and you can probably even save some money. If packages aren’t your thing, there are also plenty of rentals in the area.
