Rain or shine, you can enjoy a day of aquatic fun in this state-of-the-art facility. When we were here in July, it was only accessible to hotel guests so make sure you book the Soundwaves Water Experience Package.
- Explore the Attractions: Aside from Sounwaves Gaylord Opryland has plenty of attractions to keep your family entertained. Take a leisurely boat ride along the Delta River, where you can admire the resort’s stunning surroundings from boat. The kids will love the interactive game, “Hidden Treasure Hide & Sea-k,” where they can follow clues and solve puzzles to uncover the hidden treasure and get a prize at the end. This is also a great way to see the whole hotel on foot. Stop at one of the many bars located throughout the property and grab a beverage to enjoy along the way. Another fun attraction we did this time around was actually off property (don’t worry they have a shuttle) was the General Jackson Showboat. A legendary boat cruise down the historic Cumberland River with breathtaking views of the city, dinner, and a show.

With a wide range of dining options, you can indulge in delicious meals without leaving the resort. From casual eateries to upscale restaurants, there’s something to satisfy every palate. Don’t miss the mouthwatering Southern cuisine and delectable desserts! My kids favorite way to start each day is breakfast buffet in Cascades American Cafe.
