We are new to Nashville and arriving on 4/1. We have tickets to the Grand Ole Opry for Friday, April 2nd. I have been told to definitely see the Opryland Hotel...that it's huge and impressive. We were thinking about leaving our Downtown hotel (Doubletree) early Friday afternoon, in order to have time to see the Opryland Hotel before going to the show at the Grand Ole Opry (7:00). How far is the Grand Ole Opry from the Opryland Hotel (distance/minutes)? Does this scenario seem logical and possible? We just don't want to spend the money and time to head out to that area twice. Thanks!
