After arrival and check-in at the La Quinta Downtown Nashville Hotel, it’s time to relax and refresh before enjoying your first night in Nashville Tennessee

After breakfast, your driver/guide will pick you up at the hotel and you'll travel to downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee. You'll visit a few local attractions including the famous Chattanooga Choo Choo and have lunch (on your own) before continuing our journey to Pigeon Forge in Sevierville County (Dolly Parton’s place of birth) Once you are settled into your hotel be sure to take a shuttle ride along the “five miles of fun” The Fun Time Trolley runs up and down the Parkway all day long and it only costs a cents a ride! The Pigeon Forge Parkway is a grand focal point in this Smoky Mountain resort. The five-mile strip runs through the city and it is where you can find some of the best Pigeon Forge dining, shopping, and attractions.

Today it’s Dollywood, the most popular tourist attraction in Tennessee! Spanning 160 acres in the Great Smoky Mountains, Dollywood offers more than 50 world class rides, high-energy entertainment, award-winning dining and the friendliest park atmosphere anywhere in the world! This evening you are free to take in a show on the Parkway, or maybe enjoy some live music in one of the local entertainment spots. 

Today your driver will take you on a trip to Gatlinburg where you will have a few hours to spend exploring. Perhaps you would like to take the cable car to Ober Gatlinburg and see the black bears and other native creatures - the choice is yours! After lunch (on your own) we will take a "Mountains Tour" and then go to Pigeon Forge for some shopping and if you wish you can return to the hotel with us - or enjoy more fun on Pigeon Forge's Parkway. This evening is free to do as you please. A couple of recommendations would be: Dolly Parton’s Stampede! This Show is great fun for all ages or The Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show which features an all-you-can-eat feast while you enjoy a comical, mountain-style feud!

After a leisurely breakfast we will make our way to The Hit Recording Capital of the World - Muscle Shoals Alabama. We will stop on the way for lunch, before continuing on to our next musical adventure in Alabama. This evening we will go to one of the most unique venues for d dinner and live music - the wonderful Rattlesnake Saloon.

After breakfast we will enjoy visits and tours of the area’s Attractions - including the Music Studios that turned the Muscle Shoals area into “The Hit Recording Capital of the World” FAME, Muscle Shoals Sound & Cypress Moon, followed by lunch and the Water & Light Show at Spring Park. This afternoon we will become the latest “hit makers” at the Alabama Music Hall of Fame and tonight - it’s more live music and dancing.

We will begin our day with a leisurely breakfast and then it is time to say farewell to Alabama and hello again to Tennessee. We'll stop for lunch on our way back to Nashville. Then it will be time to say goodbye to your driver/guide and you'll be free to explore Music City at your own pace. Perhaps visit the nearby Honky-Tonks or one of the fantastic museums.
