Since the early 1970s, Nashville was known for the famous Opryland USA, also known as “Opryland Themepark” or simply “Opryland.” The amusement park operated from 1972 until its last day in 1997. The park was known worldwide and saw about 2.5 million peach each year. Opryland was a popular location for not only theme park style rides but for music as well. Being located in Nashville, it was only natural to host hundreds of concerts as well!
Though Opryland has been closed for years, the spirit of amusement parks in Nashville stays strong. There are plenty of fun parks to check out in and around the city.
