GAYLORD HOTELS CREATE SUNSATIONAL SUMMER VACATIONS
Family Friendly Resorts Offer Non-Stop Fun in Spectacular Settings

Nashville, Tenn. June 23, 2009 It's not too late to plan this summer's family getaway in a memorable Gaylord hotel, featuring a series of family friendly events and activities set in extraordinary environments that provide entertainment from check-in through check-out. Gaylord hotels are located in four of the country's most desirable and exciting destinations -- moments from the myriad attractions of Orlando; the historic monuments of D.C.; the sophisticated offerings of Dallas; and the seminal sounds of country music in Nashville -- making them ideal home bases for exploring and sight-seeing.
But the resorts are also destinations unto themselves, complete with a variety of dining options suited to every style and taste overseen by award-winning chefs, full-service spas and salons, indoor and outdoor pools, access to golf, and signature glass-enclosed atriums that span several acres and feature lush foliage, winding rivers, boat rides and strolling paths. If that wasn't enough, each resort is offering a complete roster of packages, events and activities that will keep the vacation fun going all summer long.



Heading to the Capitol Area?
The newest addition to the Gaylord Hotels Family, Gaylord National, has a roster of festive events and unique entertainment for kids from now through August 31, 2009. From inside the hotel's atrium where giant Sunsational Sand Sculptures line the walls portraying iconic monuments to Dive-In-Pool-Movies that play on Friday and Saturday nights, Gaylord National offers the hottest menu of family fun. The hotel's family focus starts at check-in when pint-sized guests receive a free Gaylord Activity Book and a scavenger hunt map that takes them on a quest in search of "Sunny G," a Gaylord Teddy Bear. For more information, click here.

Heading for the Country Sounds of Summer?
The landmark in famed "music city," the Gaylord Opryland resort is a multi-faceted destination unto itself, offering a captivating country-style SummerFest program with fun for everyone, especially kids. All summer long, kids staying overnight at Gaylord Opryland with at least one adult will eat every meal free, with no additional charge for children staying with their parents in the same room (3rd and 4th guests free).* Families can also participate in the "Discover Nashville with Your Family," package (available through Sept. 7, 2009), that includes entry to famous attractions such as the Nashville Zoo and the Adventure Science Center. And the fun continues after dark, with Country Street Parties on the Delta Island featuring country music, line dancing, and performances each night. Also, nightly fountain shows will flow to the sounds of accompanying country music, and Light-Up Delta Boat rides will feature classic country sounds of Opry legends from today and yesterday. For more information, click here.
*(Offer applies to children 11 years old and younger)

Heading for Rock & Roll Fun in Florida?
"Summer Rocks" at Gaylord Palms with a series of promotions, activities and events geared towards rock and roll fun in the sun. Friendly family rivalry will take the form of adults and kids challenging one another in the Roadies Challenge and Lil' Rock Star Challenge. Wee rockers (up to age 10) will travel the atrium collecting items for their rock star goodie bags, while others can complete a clever scavenger hunt. In addition, guests can put their guitar skills to the test during Guitar Hero Competitions. The "Kids Eat Free" package that offers guests 12 and under free meals* at select restaurants when ordering from the resort's special children's menu is sure to keep the family rockin' out in style. The fun goes on when the sun goes down with Boogie Nights Golf, where guests get the chance to shake their groove thang while enjoying a round of sun-free, glow-in-the-dark golf with the whole family. For more information, click here.
*(This package offer is based upon availability, and restrictions apply)


Heading for the Biggest and Best in Texas?
 The fifth-annual SummerFest at Gaylord Texan takes place every Thursday through Sunday, from now through September 6th, 2009, and features a big variety of festive events and entertainment for adults and families. Firework Fridays at Gaylord Texan will sparkle and sizzle with a spectacular show for the whole family. Every Thursday night, families will enjoy delectable dining at great value, as kids eat free from special kid's menus. The culinary capers won't stop at dinner. There are exquisite dessert tastings at the resort's Java Coast Coffee Shop, Texan Station, and SummerFest Sweet Shoppe. The biggest and best summer destination in the Southwest, the Gaylord Texan resort entertainment includes magicians, balloon artists, guitar players, caricature artists, the Gold Cowboy, jugglers, Miki the Monkey, the Texas Roper, and face painters. All of this, all summer long!*
* (Thursday 6 pm - 9:30pm *Friday 4 pm - 9:30pm *Saturday, 4 pm - 9:30pm *Sunday 11 am - 3 pm) For more information, click here.
