VP-28 Reunion - Nashville, TN - November 7-11, 2017

Save the Date (Nov. 7-11) for this year's Patron 28 Reunion in Nashville, TN

Nashville, TN provides a rich and welcoming location for our 2017 Reunion. Many fun activities are planned and we worked hard to make the Reunion as "budget friendly" as possible. This endeavor becomes more difficult each year as prices and taxes continue to rise.

Heralded as Music City, U.S.A., and the country-music capital of the world, Tennessee's fast-growing capital city also shines as a regional center and is known as the Athens of the South. Nashville is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike, with restaurants, specialty shopping, and entertainment options. Historic sites throughout the area—such as the Hermitage and the Belle Meade Plantation—add another dimension to the city.  We look forward to visiting Nashville and enjoying its historic roots, southern hospitality and entertainment venues.

Wednesday, November 8 - Out and About Exploring Nashville

Wednesday is reserved for exploration and recreation. Many attractions are awaiting you in Nashville. The sights and sounds of the city will be our main focus today. Our prior Reunion experience has shown us that trolleys are a great way to tour and visit attractions and get a feel for the city. The Trolley will pick us up and return us to our hotel. The narrated trolley tour stops at 15 points of interest in the downtown area of Nashville. You have hop-on/hop-off privileges for Wednesday and Thursday.  Click here  to view an interactive map of the trolley stops. We would recommend you take the full tour to get an idea of which stops interest you. You can then repeat the circuit and hop on/hop off to enjoy your points of interest.
