I think it sounds great! I'm glad you chose to do Nashville first because you may not have wanted to leave the mountains if you had visited there first.

This is a good itenerary. For Gatlinburg, I suggest touring downtown on foot. It is really touristy and fun to walk the strip. PLEASE eat at the Best Italian restaurant. Yes, that is the name. Ask around and people will know where it is. it is great.

Thanks for the feedback. I am getting so excited for our trip! A couple of questions:

The Station Inn opens at 7. Do we need to be there much earlier than that?

Can you recommend a great place to eat near The Station Inn? No need for fine dining but not pub food either. We are pretty open with our tastes and love to try new things as well as classic choices.

Thanks for the tips about Gatlinburg. Love Italian and can't wait to try The Best Italian Restaurant! :-)
