We recently visited Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center for the ultimate staycation! As a Nashville native, some of my favorite memories are from visiting Opryland with my parents and siblings. So I wanted to make sure to create those special memories with my boys and we have been going a couple times a year since Braden was around a year old. My boys absolutely love it there and never want to leave once we arrive.
After so much uncertainty this year and a couple cancelled trips we decided that Gaylord Opryland would be the perfect place for a staycation before the boys went back to school. One of the questions that I have been asked several times is about how the resort is handling COVID-19 and the practives that they have in place. I was very impressed with the way that the resort is handling things and felt very comfortable during our entire stay. Since Gaylord Opryland opened back up in late June, they have implemented their “Commitment to Clean” practices which you can find out more info on here.
Gaylord Opryland is one of the 30 largest hotels in the world. The resort features 9 acres of indoor gardens, cascading waterfalls and an indoor river. Plus, it has over 2800 guest rooms. There is so much to do around the resort, so I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite things.
SoundWaves Nashville is Gaylord Oprylands new indoor/outdoor luxury water attraction. It features 4 acres of water fun including: multiple water slides, a wave pool, a lazy river and a fast river, kids areas, an adults only section, and so much more. There truely is so much for everyone to enjoy here!
We had a blast and enjoyed Soundwaves all three days of our stay. The boys could not get enough and were so excited to be there. Preston was obsessed with going down the slides as many times as he possibly could. While Braden could not get enough of the wave pool with the 37 ft big screen tv that towered over it.
One thing to remember when planning your trip to SoundWaves is that you can arrive early on your check in date to take advantage of the water park. The hotel staff will hold onto you luggage in the lobby for you while you enjoy some time in the water and will call when you room is ready. Another thing to remember is that your SoundWaves writstband is valid until noon on check out date, which gives you a little extra time to enjoy the amazing water attraction that Gaylord Opryland has to offer.
