It’s easy to think of Nashville’s Gaylord Opryland Hotel & Resort as simply a beautiful tourist attraction and hotel that happens to exist in our city. However, the recently renovated (and gorgeous) resort is much more than that and hosts a bevy of special events, fine dining options and exquisite cuisine, making it a perfect Mother’s Day destination this Sunday.
For brunch, the resort is highlighting two buffet options at the Gaylord Springs golf resort area country club and Ravello Southern Italian restaurant in the main resort atrium. Both offer a breakfast and meat buffet along with options for the kids too. The scenery is second to none at Gaylord Opryland–offering views of the golf course at the Springs and the beautiful atrium setting at Ravello’s.
