Day 2 – Delavan to Shipshewana, IN 

After an included breakfast at the hotel, we’ll journey on to Shipshewana, an inviting village, the heart of one of the country’s largest Amish communities. Small, modest and rural, just like our stop the day before, it surprises you with its flair, quality and big time offerings. After some leisure time to explore, an Amish family style dinner is served at the Blue Gate Restaurant and Bakery. After dinner, we board the coach a short distance to the Event Center for the Dailey & Vincent’s Bluegrass Show!

Today we will become part of one of the longest running feuds in history at “The Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show!” Enjoy a Tennessee country dinner with all the trimmings, served family style. Before our evening event we will check into our lovely and welcoming accommodations at The Music Road Inn. (Appropriately named!)

Day 5 – Pigeon Forge to Nashville, TN 

We arrive just in time for a wonderful included lunch at Café Fontanella. The Café is located at Fontanel, the incredible former residence of Country Music Hall of Famer Barbara Mandrell. The home is an amazing 33,000 sq ft log mansion situated on beautifully landscaped grounds in Whites Creek just outside of Nashville. Following lunch we are privileged to an inside tour of the home guided by an aspiring musician. The mansion is the biggest log residence of its type in the world and was conceived and designed by Barbara and her husband. Leaving Fontanel, we arrive at The Gaylord Opryland Resort, our home base for the next three days! This world renowned lavish hotel is set under three mammoth glass atriums. Our rooms are all situated on the atrium side, providing amazing views. You’ll have the entire late afternoon and evening to explore this expansive place. You are on your own for dinner tonight to select from many restaurants, grills, bars, delis, etc. The entire tour would be worth it just for this extended stay at this wonderful place!

Truly a spectacular day!

This has been a pilgrimage for many people over the years and you will totally enjoy the experience! Departing from Graceland, we check into our hotel.
