APV Workshop Optional Excursions

The membership committee has come up with three fun off-site excursions for the free time on Thursday afternoon during the APV Workshop!

You will be able to sign up for an excursion during the registration process. Payment is required to reserve your spot. More details about each are below. Keep in mind, each excursion is at the same time (~2:00pm-3:00pm), therefore you may only choose one off-site excursion. Also note, transportation to/from the excursions is on your own. We recommend Rideshare (Uber/Lyft) or check with the hotel with taxi/shuttle options.

Be sure to check out The Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center’s website for more information about other on-site activities, such as their water attraction SoundWaves, indoor garden atriums, award-winning restaurants and bars, and the Relache Spa.

The membership committee also recommends checking out www.visitmusiccity.com for more experiences, activities, and things to do in Nashville, including a night out on Honky Tonk Highway (Broadway), Country Music Hall of Fame, Johnny Cash Museum, Nashville Zoo, and the Grand Ole Opry.
