Easter-ruin travel plans?

Hey everyone,

My husband and I are traveling in the US and loving it.

We will be in Nashville on Saturday night before Easter, and in Asheville on Sunday. I was just informed that during Easter everything will be closed...we are from Israel so have no idea how Easter is exactly.

Does that mean we won't be able to listen to music somewhere, and have dinner?

Are we talking about Saturday night, Sunday night, or both?

Easter is not like Christmas, where almost every single business (except the occasional gas station or mom-and-pop store) is closed. This may ease your mind:



Easter is a big family day and tends to be child-centered--lots of Easter Egg Hunts and associated events. Most churches will have special Easter services but, in general, you will find the Easter Egg Hunts and the other events that day to be secular events.

Someone else will have to comment on the *dinner plus music on Easter night* portion of your question.

Here is a helpful link for you to get started:

Think about if we were coming to Israel ( which I have several times) and posted " will Yom Kippur ruin our travel plans"? I visited Israel without worrying about the holiday...and loved it each time...found many wonderful things to see and do. You will do the same in both Nashville and Asheville. It is a wonderful, holy day for many of us - eagerly awaited. You will find many dining opportunities ( lavish Easter buffets at places like Grove Park Inn in Asheville) and hopefully fantastic weather. Enjoy your trip.
