Shopping >Opry Mills
WHERE ARE THE RIDES. UM WELL AS A NATIVE TO THE AREA, I HAVE TO SAY I MISS THE THEME PARK. I WENT THERE AS A KID AND DEEPLY WISH IT WAS STILL AROUND INSTEAD YOU HAVE THIS SLAB OF CONCREATE IN ITS PLACE. I HONESTLY HAVE ONLY GONE 2 TIMES TO THE MALL AND THAT IS 2 TIMES TO MANY. THE RAINFOREST CAFE YEH IT LOOKS COOL BUT THE PRICES ARE INSANE!!! NOT TO MENTION EVERY ONE IS THERE TO GET LOW PRICES ON ITEMS, WELL FOLKS YOU ARE BEING JIPPED. SORRY!! THE TRUTH HURTS. I MEAN HONESTLY WHO WANTS TO WLK AROUND A HUGE MALL THAT HAS EXPENSIVE JUNK FOR SALE....ONLY IN THE SOUTH!! MY ADVISE IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR QUALITY ITEMS AND SHOPPING GO TO THE GREEN HILLS MALL. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR FUN, THEN FOR GOODNESS SAKE DONT GO TO A STUPID MALL!!!!!!!!!!
As a resident of Nashville, I can tell you that this mall is for tourists. Most locals go to the Mall at Green Hills. Like others have said, it's massive, and usually quite crowded. However, there are some neat stores and great deals to be found within, especially in the outlets.
If what you're looking for is a nice, middle-class, kid-friendly way to spend a scorching Nashville summer day, this is a great destination.
If you have some serious money to burn and are looking for more upscale, luxury stores like Louis Vuitton and Tiffany's, you will want to visit the Mall at Green Hills.
Not good for much.... Essentially, this mall caters to tourists and the lower class of Nashville. Half of the stores are unique to Nashville, yes, but that's because they sell niche items like country music memorabilia and various pieces of Southern-pride junk. The only redeeming store there is an outlet store for Saks Fifth Avenue, but even this place has an abysmal men's section. Otherwise, all of the other stores (Banana Republic, Abercrombie, Aeropostale, AE, Gap...) can be found at any of the other [better] malls in the area. It's overcrowded and just last weekend, 7/15/06, there was a g@ng-related shooting in the food court area that resulted in innocent shoppers getting shot...yeah, GREAT place... Do yourself a favor and go to the Mall at Greenhills. It's MUCH classier, has better stores and is closer to downtown and great restaurants.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors. Expansive mall offers restaurants, event venues and stores such as Tommy Hilfiger, rue21, Nautica and Old Navy.
nasty. This mall Stinks. There are too many people radiating sweat to be able to walk around comfortably. It reeks of upchuck and human odor constantly and the most prevalent sounds are those of loud men arguing over Kenny Chesney and persistent toddlers begging for their Build-A-Bears. There is, however, a humonguous food court. There can be too much of a good thing, and this mall is simply TOO BIG. You cannot walk around the entire premises in one day without passing out! There are a few interesting stores, but it's just not worth it. The IMAX, on the other hand, is pretty cool. But I would rather just have Opryland.
Too many kiosks. Walking down the hallways, you are chased and harrassed by the "merchants" in the middle. I avoid going to this mall like the plague.
Opry Mills...lots ot look at!. I really enjoy Opry Mills. I do miss Opryland, but all good things often come to an end. Let's be positive, though! Opry Mills is lots of fun with cool shops and several outlet stores. I especially like Off Broadway Shoes, Nike, Build A Bear, Liz Claiborne, Old Navy. Lots of unique shops you won't find anywhere else.
Unusual, but disappointing.
I'm not sure I recommend more than one visit to the Opry Mills Mall in Nashville, Tennessee.
The mammoth shopping mall is not an aesthetic replacement for Opryland. It is an oasis in asphault and an injustice to Nashville citizens, in my opinion, with only average stores. Nashville can do much better.
The biggest disappointment is its size. Even the fitness-minded powershopper will be exhausted to tears. However, one of Opry Mills' saving graces is IMAX. Thankfully, movie-goers don't have to enter the mall area.
It's also a shame the beautiful Opryland Hotel and the Grand Ole Opry House are reduced to parking lot features at Opry Mills. The owners have successfully destroyed a Nashville tribute to late country music stars and buried them beneath the asphault.
Besides all this, Nashville has more than 1 million people. Where are the trendy stores? It's certainly big enough to support them.
Way To Go. They tear down an entire theme park and still cant manage to obtain a REAL department store like Nordstrom, Neimans, or Macy's, Personally I would MUCH rather spend my day at a theme park enjoying the atmosphere , and if gaylord had an ounce of business sense they would have been able to keep opryland open. If you want to shop take yourself to Atlanta , NYC, Chicago, or LA. but lets face it Nashville is not a shoppers destination, I would however get on a plane to go to opryland.
IT'S WORTH SEEING. Opry Mills is definately worth seeing when in Nashville. The Movie Theater is great. If you are into hunting or fishing you can find everything you need at Bass Pro Shops. There is a wide variety of restaurants to check out.
