Romantic Hotspot in Nashville, Tennessee

For those of you who might be looking to create a romantic experience not soon to be forgotten, look no further than the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. I realize that this is not overly practical unless you are in Nashville, but hear me out, because even if you only come to Nashville for a romantic weekend getaway, this hotel is sure to add the spark you're looking for. Last night, my wife and I went to the hotel for dinner. We went to one of the several 5 star restaurants scattered throughout this massive hotel. Our particular choice was "Ristorante Volaire" which was an elegant Italian restaurant featuring a menu with a range of entrees that are to die for. Better still, we sat "outside" and enjoyed our meal amongst the incredibly beautiful gardens of the hotel. What you need to understand is that the entire hotel is under glass, and features immense gardens, beautiful walkways and endless expanses of landscaping that is just breathtaking. Better still is that at night, the cobblestone walks are lined by lanterns and other similar lighting that weave in and out of the gardens. It makes for an incredible evening. I could go on and on about this hotel, but you really need to see it for yourself. And, if you happen to try "Ristorante Volaire", order the swordfish...it is out of this world!
