The Gaylord Opryland Hotel reminded me of the big casino hotels in Las Vegas. It was such a dramatic difference from the ICE! exhibit we had just went to. Lots of beautiful vegetation and warm. They had it all decorated for Christmas with multiple Christmas trees. We enjoyed going on the little path and seeing everything. It wasn't quite as exciting as I was expecting, probably because it was talked up so much, but it was nice. Very commercialized.
