River Cruise Itinerary
Day 1: Nashville, TN
Departure 4:00 PM
Enjoy Music City, home of the Grand Ole Opry and historic Ryman Auditorium, before boarding the vessel this afternoon.
 
Day 2: Nashville, TN
Enjoy Music City, home of the Grand Ole Opry and historic Ryman Auditorium, the  “Mother Church of Country Music,” originally built as Union Gospel Tabernacle by steamboat captain Thomas G. Ryman in 1892. This modern, growing city has a deep appreciation for its history, and hasn’t lost its southern charm. Historic buildings and plantations like Belmont Mansion, Travellers Rest and Belle Meade Plantation dot the Nashville landscape.
 
Day 3: Dover, TN
Stewart County is a small county enriched with history, picture-perfect scenery, and welcoming citizens. Guests are greeted with nature's beauty and wildlife surrounding the city. Located at the county's heart is Dover, its county seat and the home of Fort Donel­son National Park. This peaceful, picturesque town is the location of one of the most historic battles of the Civil War - a battle that changed the direction of the war for the North. Today, bald eagles call this park their home as and soar through the skies; a true symbol of freedom. Although small and rural, Dover has much to offer her visitors who can enjoy a delicious meal at one of the many local restaurants or take in the comforting hometown charm found throughout the city. Dover and Stewart County are the perfect gateway to a simple, cozy, quiet, country experience.
 
Day 4: Paducah, KY
Paducah embraces their harmonious history between the European settlers and the Padoucca Indians native to the area. The city is located at the confluence of the Ohio and the Tennessee Rivers and because of this, it is often called the Four-Rivers Area due to the proximity of the Ohio, Cumberland, Tennessee, and Mississippi Rivers. This prime location has played a major role in Paducah’s history, as transportation was easily accessible – the economy was strong and travelers were frequent!
 
Day 5: Clarksville, TN
Clarksville is the fifth fastest growing city in the United States while keeping their small town charm. Founded in 1784 and incorporated as a town in 1785, Clarksville was named for Revolutionary War hero General George Rogers Clark. The town is lined with history ranging for centuries and can be seen through prime examples of Victorian and Roman styles of architecture that are prevalent throughout the city.
 
Day 6: Nashville, TN
Enjoy Music City, home of the Grand Ole Opry and historic Ryman Auditorium, the  “Mother Church of Country Music,” originally built as Union Gospel Tabernacle by steamboat captain Thomas G. Ryman in 1892. This modern, growing city has a deep appreciation for its history, and hasn’t lost its southern charm.
