Tour Ends in Nashville May 31, 2021
Day 1 – Friday – May 28
Arrive at the Nashville International Airport and transfer, on your own, to our hotel.
Once settled in our rooms, head out and explore on our own before we depart for an iconic Nashville dinner-show experience: the General Jackson Showboat Dinner Show and Cruise.
The show features a live band, six rising stars, dynamic music arrangements, dazzling choreography and stunning costumes all supported by state-of-the-art lighting and sound. Also included this evening is a delicious dinner and of course, the Cumberland River cruise.
After dinner, the evening is ours to enjoy!
Day 2 – Saturday – May 29
Enjoy a hot breakfast at the hotel before we depart on a three-hour tour of Nashville, guided by a local singer / songwriter who will tell us all about Nashville. Your singer / songwriter guide will take the group on a tour of Music City, including world-famous Music Row, where you will learn about the recording industry straight from an aspiring songwriter. The city tour also will take you through the heart of Downtown Nashville and past many of the historic buildings, including the Ryman Auditorium, Tennessee State Capitol, Bicentennial Mall State Park, Vanderbilt University, Belmont University, Centennial Park, the Parthenon and much more. The Songwriter guide will also perform a few of his/her original songs along the way.
During your city tour, enjoy a stop at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the definitive home of America’s music, safeguarding more than 2.5 million priceless artifacts, countless recordings, photographs, numerous stage costumes, musical instruments, and more. Your group will enjoy a self-guided tour, as well as free time to enjoy lunch on your own at one of the Hall of Fame Complex’s several restaurants, which will be pointed out by your step-on tour guide.
Next, tour the “mother church of country music,” The Ryman Auditorium. Your visit to this famous National Historic Landmark begins with “Soul of Nashville,” a state-of-the-art theatre experience that puts you at the center of the Ryman’s fascinating history as more than a century of legendary performances come to life all around you. Next, enjoy five new exhibits where you can peruse genuine artifacts as video hosts Charles Esten (Deacon on Nashville), Marty Stuart, Nicole Kidman, Ricky Skaggs, Robin Roberts and Trisha Yearwood take you through each chapter of the Ryman’s illustrious history.
After our tour, the rest of the day/night is ours to enjoy at leisure. Join the group to see a show at the famous Grand Ole Opry or head to one of the many country bars along Honky Tonk Row! Nashville’s vibrant nightlife is full of music, dancing and fun!
Day 3 – Sunday – May 30
Free Day and Farewell Dinner/Show
After breakfast at our hotel, meet with new friends and wander Nashville at your own pace. Plan to tour the Belle Meade Plantation or a brewery. Taste your way through Nashville through the many restaurants and cafes that line the downtown area, or relax in the peace and quiet of the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. Check out the Musicians Hall of Fame or Belmont mansion. The possibilities are endless in this city!
However we choose to spend our free day, just be sure to be back in time to get ready for our farewell dinner/show tonight. We are in for a wonderful evening with “Cash: The Legacy Continues”. As one of the great musical story tellers in history, Johnny Cash is an American treasure! His tradition continues in this one of a kind performance. Tommy Cash (Johnny’s younger brother) or Mark Alan Cash (Johnny’s nephew) will perform a salute show celebrating the history of Johnny Cash. Through personal remembrances and family stories, we are given an insight as to what it was like to grow up in the Cash family. As a group, we will share our own Johnny Cash experiences as we tap along to all of his recognizable classics! What better way is there to end our musical weekend than a night celebrating a tribute to Johnny Cash!
Day 4 – Monday – May 31
Check out and Transfer to Airport
This morning we will have our final breakfast in Nashville before we check out and transfer, on our own, to the airport.

From the moment you join our tour, our heroes, the STI Travel Concierge team is waiting to meet you. Our first day begins with a get together and the camaraderie builds as we go along.
As a travel club, matchmaking is not our focus. We offer an opportunity for single travelers to see the world in the company of other singles and do not guarantee ratios or ages. Our vacations are specifically designed for Baby Boomers and active travelers with an average age range of 50-70. We generally have a ratio of 60/40, women to men.

We encourage our members to complete their personal profiles including a photo. Knowing who’s on the trip in advance makes socializing before and during your vacation easier and more fun.
Gorgeous! You may expect sunny days with daytime temperatures to be in the mid- to high- 70s. Evening temperatures are generally in the mid 60s. Rain is always possible, so come prepared with rain gear and a jacket for evenings.

Meet Your STI Concierge
Hi! My name is Vicki, and I am so happy to have joined the STI family as a Concierge! After having a career as a health-and-fitness writer and then having children, I decided to make a career change in order to pursue my love for travel. For 9 years now, I have designed small-group tours all over Europe and have led tours in Italy, Malta and Croatia. From the moment I began leading tours, being able to share wonderful experiences and make people smile through discovering a new location - or perhaps through discovering something about themselves - I felt as if I had found exactly what I was meant to do! I look forward to making your vacation dreams come true.
