An August 2005 trip
to Nashville by MilwVon
Quote: Once again, I used my timeshare ownership for a week attending a major conference, this time in Nashville. While I was in "class" for 5 days, I did get out some.

Attraction | "The Jack Daniel Distillery"
There is a guide who will walk you through the entire process of making whiskey. Even if you are a teetotaler, I believe you'll have an appreciation of the exacting process that goes into making Jack Daniel's whiskey.
At the end of the tour, there will be (nonalcoholic) lemonade awaiting you. You will also be able to buy special commemorative bottles of Jack Daniels at very competitive prices.
I did the Grayline tour from Fairfield. The price was $35. If you go on your own, there is no admission fee. It is a long day, around 7 hours, which includes about 2 hours in downtown Lynchburg for shopping and lunch (see my separate journal entry on that experience).

As you walk around town, you will, of course, be able to buy all the Jack Daniel's memorabilia you could ever want. But don't think you can buy whiskey there! It's a dry county. Go figure. There is one special store, The Barrel Shop, where they sell a lot of really neat things made from the barrels used in the production of the whiskey. Window-shopping there is in order.
This resort had outstanding daily onsite activities. They also arranged for special tours of Nashville and the surrounding area via Grayline Tours and a local company called Tootsies. There was also a downtown trip to Nashville that was provided by the resort for just $5 per person. This is one of the best Fairfield resorts I've ever stayed at!
