Cheekwood Estate and Gardens is an extraordinary estate built in the 1930s. Today, it includes a Georgian mansion and 55 acres of cultivated gardens, expansive vistas, gardens and art museum. In 2020 a new Chihuly exhibit will adorn Cheekwood. The temporary exhibition features multimedia artist Dale Chihuly’s sculptures displayed throughout the historic estate, both in the gardens and galleries. The exhibition includes two new works designed specifically for the show. Coincidently, Cheekwood’s new Carell Woodland Sculpture Trail recently reopened. This mile-long trail features 10 sculptures, a new trailhead entrance, a barrier-free path, enhanced lighting, horticultural areas and now Chihuly’s works! Enjoy a guided tour of the grounds and the mansion. Take free time tonight to explore Opry Mills and dine at one of the many restaurants. 🅑

Following breakfast head out to the Belle Meade Plantation, an iconic Plantation home typical of the deep South. Tour the Greek-Revival Mansion and enjoy a tutorial on the plantation’s history as told through the stories of the Harding-Jackson family. Next, take a self-guided tour of the grounds, including the dairy, horse stable, carriage house, mausoleum, gardens, and a log cabin. We’ll cap off the day with a wine tasting at the Belle Meade winery! As a grand finale for our trip to Nashville, we’ll indulge in a delicious meal and deep belly laughs at Ray Stevens Dinner Show, “CabaRay.” Ray has created an intimate setting where fans enjoy dinner and cocktails while up close and personal with their favorite artist, him! Make sure you soak up the history and memorabilia in this remarkable venue! 🅑🅓
