Bus pick-up locations are the same as last year's:
1) Winner's Circle/Holiday Inn in Grantville, PA (off I-81) - pickup time 4 AM!!!
2) Broken Land EAST Park-N-Ride (off Route 32 near I-95) in Columbia, MD - pickup time 7 AM!!!
3) McDonald's/Park-N-Ride in Strasburg, VA (off I-81 near I-66/ Route 11) - estimated pickup time 9 AM!!!
The hotel we use, Baymont Inn & Suites (off Briley Pkwy), is about 10-15 minutes w/traffic from Downtown and the Stadium (LP Field) and 3 miles from the airport and Opryland. We will have our own favorite bus driver - Fritz - take us to and from Downtown 3 times a day (9 AM, 1 PM, and 6 PM) and home after the nightly concerts at 12:30 AM! This year we got Fritz a bus pass for the LP parking lot, too!!! People who must be somewhere at a specific time usually split a taxi. Staying at a hotel just outside of town, saves us all A LOT of money and we have established a great relationship with this hotel 3 years in a row now (this year will be our 4th)!!!
The free breakfast at the hotel is a standard continental breakfast - (pancakes/waffles/bagels/eggs) and you can fill up and get a great start to your day! There are tons of restaurants all over Downtown with something for everyone!!
We have people who are coming with us for the third and fourth year in a row and we all have a ton of GREAT MEMORIES to treasure and share forever!!! CMA Fest is so much fun and FULL of great country music!!! You WILL have a blast no matter your budget!!!
We do not organize anything once we're in Nashville. Everyone's daily itinerary is up to the individual(s). People tend to plan events and do things in groups of new and old friends, sometimes pre-planned, sometimes at the spur of the moment. Some people try to go to EVERYTHING and others do things more casually (like Richie & I) - it depends on what you want to do! Some Fan Parties, etc, require special tickets, so please look up your favorites artists and find out what they have planned, etc.
Below is a great site to use - read and learn as much as you can - that way you can plan ahead and be sure not to "miss out" on anything going on!!! Be sure to also sign up for their Newsletter and CMA Fest text messages! (see website below)
