NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville is giant -- made of event and conference centers, resort rooms, and giant indoor gardens. The staff also goes to great lengths to turn that space into a truly magical Christmas wonderland.
The resort is known for its nine acres of massive indoor garden spaces, the biggest of which is the Delta Atrium. During the holiday season, it turns into a massive space decked floor to ceiling in Christmas spirit.
"Gaylord Opryland is a holiday destination unto itself," said Jenny Barker, Public Relations Director for the resort. "Beyond our 2.3 million holiday lights, you'll find 15,000 poinsettia plants at our hotel. There are more than 50,000 tropical plants inside our nine acres of indoor gardens. Behind me is a quarter-mile long river, there's a 48-foot Christmas tree behind me, and that's not even covering all the shows and attractions we have."
The Delta Atrium alone features the tallest Christmas tree in the resort at 48 feet, and Santa comes to visit during the holidays. It also features a quarter mile river, and you can take a boat ride to see all the decorations, including waterfalls and fountain shows.
