Southern Christmas

December 6th-11th, 2020

​Join Timi’s Tours for a holiday themed journey you’ll always remember!

 Day 1: We depart Illinois and journey to the iconic Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee! After checking in, we’ll attend the Country Christmas Dinner Show featuring The Oak Ridge Boys.  Members of the Country Music Hall of Fame, this classic American group has won at both the Grammys and the Country Music Awards.

Day 2: Today, the Opryland Hotel is your oyster, where you will “marvel at more than 3 million holiday lights and acres of magnificent decorations”, while enjoying tickets to both “ICE” and the Delta Riverboat Christmas Cruise to redeem at your leisure.

“ICE” features breathtaking, hand-carved, interactive ice sculptures and displays. Last year, they utilized over 2-million pounds of ice to bring this spectacular attraction to life. To give you an idea, that’s over 36 truckloads worth of the frozen material that will become art. For the festive riverboat cruise, you’ll tour the beautiful, quarter-mile indoor river, surrounded by a 4.5-acre garden in the Delta Atrium. It’s a ride you won’t soon forget!

After an awesome day, there’s still more fun to be had! As a group, we’ll leave the resort for an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner at the Nashville Nightlife Dinner Theatre and watch their “Best of Country Holiday Show”, before turning in for the evening.

Day 3: We’ll continue our travels and head east to Asheville, North Carolina for an idyllic stay at an iconic institution: The Inn of Biltmore Estate! Your evening is quite special as it includes an awe-inspiring candlelight Christmas Dinner at Deerpark.

Day 4: You’ll begin your day with a self-guided tour of the historic and legendary Biltmore House. Later, you'll experience a candlelight dinner at the Stable Cafe, followed by a candlelight Christmas evening tour of the Biltmore House.

Day 5: After breakfast, we’ll say ‘farewell’ to North Carolina and begin the final segment of our trip as we drive to Louisville, Kentucky. For our last evening, we will be treated to a meal and entertainment at The Derby Dinner Playhouse. They playhouse has been a success for over 45 years and now entertains an audience of over 200,000 patrons annually!

Day 6: We return home full of the Spirit of Christmas, having made great memories along the way.

This one-of-a-kind trip will make for a season you won’t soon forget!

Your trip includes 5 breakfasts and 5 dinners
