Ready to celebrate your bachelorette party country style? Mosey on down to Nashville for a weekend of country music, vintage shopping, pulled pork and cute boys in cowboy hats.
The Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville offers up a Recessionista Package, which includes two cowboy hats from a local shop; two tickets to the Bluebird Café, a live music venue, and welcome Tennessee Tea cocktails for two and a club level room. Prices start at $199 per person a night. The hotel features a jukebox in the lobby and memorabilia from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. It's also an easy walk to Music Row.
A little further outside of town sits the Gaylord Opryland--a Vegas-sized resort without the gambling. It's conveniently located next door to the Grand Ole Opry, where you might be able to catch Carrie Underwoord or Trace Adkins in concert. Among other things, it's home to Fuse (above), which was honored with Best Dance Club, Best DJ and Most Creative Cocktails by The Tennessean, the local Nashville newspaper. The pool sharks among you will want to check out the on-site Wildhorse Saloon with its 10 pool tables--there's no charge to play. You can also take all your Guitar Hero fantasies to the next step and rent a guitar while you're all the hotel through its Check-In Rock Out! program. During the day, relax by the pool or hit the Relâche Spa.
