The Opryland Hotel is located right next to Opry Mills Mall and is a beautiful place to stay on your next trip to Nashville.  Even if  you aren’t staying at the hotel, it is well worth a visit to see the 9 acres of gardens and all the water features.

We were only in town overnight for a marching band competition and didn’t stay at the Opryland Hotel.  However, we were planning to get all the Opry Mills Mall pressed pennies anyway, so we just walked over to the hotel to check it out and get the Opryland Hotel pressed pennies while we were in the area. (If you are only visiting the hotel to get the pressed pennies, be sure to check out my note later in this post about parking.)

Unfortunately, this is one of the new $1 machines that dispenses pre-loaded zinc pennies.  I hate that the industry is going in that direction, but it won’t stop me from adding the pennies to my collection.
