Friday, May 15: Depart Bellevue by motorcoach at 7 am for a leisurely ride to Nashville, TN enjoying lunch and rest stops en route (on your own). Arrive and check into our hotel for the next two nights, the Guest House Inn on Music Valley Drive. After time to freshen up, our motorcoach will take us to dinner at the Cock of the Walk Restaurant (included). If you've never been there, it's a fun experience. Back at the hotel the remainder of the evening is yours. Relax in your room, take a swim in the indoor pool, check out the lounge or go exploring.
Saturday, May 16: After breakfast (included) at the hotel board our motorcoach for a short ride to the Tennessee Central Railway Museum for a day of fun and excitement on the rails (included), traveling from Nashville to Watertown, a 90 mile round trip. The Mackie & Wilson Gangs are on the loose again! Rumors have it they will attempt to hold up a train en route to Watertown and maybe even raid Watertown itself! Here's your chance to ride along and witness a real train robbery and see how these villains operate. You'll be riding on historic passenger cars during your trip. During the layover in Watertown there will be time for lunch (on your own) at one of the many restaurants and shopping at some of the shops on the square. After returning to Nashville we'll make a short stop back at the hotel if time permits, then it's off to an early dinner (on your own) before going to this evenings 7 pm Grand Ole Opry show (included). This is the world's longest running live radio program, featuring the best in country music. We won't know until the last minute which performers will be on stage this evening and what surprises they may have in store for us. Back to the hotel for a good night's rest or explore Nashville's nightlife on your own.
Sunday, May 17: Have breakfast and depart early this morning, this leg of our trip takes us to the Cincinnati area where we'll board one of the B&B Riverboats for a 2-hour scenic buffet Brunch Cruise while being entertained by a Dixieland band (included).
