About the only thing not open is the Opryland Hotel and Oprymills Mall and trust me, as far as eating, they aren't missing anything there IMHO. Opryland Hotel was always somewhere we took people though - it was spectacular. Depending on when they are coming, it might be open - they are pushing hard to get things back open out there.

OH - tell them to take advantage of the fact that the Grand Ole Opry has been relocated back to the historic Ryman Auditorium. They typically move it back every November until February. It is SO much better at the Ryman. So intimate. An experience you will never forget even if you aren't a country music fan. My husband doesn't like country music but would tell you that it's an experience you have to have and at the Ryman it's a thousand times better.

OH - the symphony hall is not back open and that is spectacular too. But everything else is pretty well open.

Not sure what other foods they like but I just heard that we were rated one of the top drinking cities in the country along with the big ones. We have a couple of cool cocktail bars/restaurants that are very retro like old speak easies in a way. Patterson House and Holland House.

Bluebird Cafe to hear great music - it's the actual song writers that write the hits and sometimes they are better than the artists that record them.

Definitely hit downtown Franklin - the square, cool shops, civil war history all around.

Oh and right now we have a wonderful Chihuly exhibit - part of it as at the Frist Art Museum and the other part at Cheekwood Mansion and Gardens and is beautifully lit at night.
