Inclusive travel destinations in Smoky Mountains or thereabouts

HI there. I'm tasked with researching on possible retreat destinations for a group of professional women that includes a mix of identities, cultures and religions. A third of the members are Black, some are Jewish, some are queer. The Smoky Mountains came up as a possibility because it's the geographic epicenter of our group. We want to ensure a safe, relaxing time for everyone and avoid unwelcoming, biased or racist encounters with staff, other travelers, etc. Can you recommend any places? [more inside]

A week in Tennessee

My adult son and I are headed to TN (from VA) in a couple of weeks to spend a week exploring civil war battlefields (he is a historian and civil war nerd). We'll be camping in Chattanooga for 2 nights, Shiloh for 2 nights, and Murfreesboro for 1 night. What shouldn't we miss in those areas, outside the obvious battlefields? [more inside]

Where to stop by for some late evening live music in Nashville?

I'll be in Nashville Wednesday and Thursday next week with some colleagues for work. We'll be very busy during daytime hours, but if there's time in the evenings we'd like to see some live music at whatever bars, pubs, or other venues are easy to drop-in. I don't know how late the nightlife goes on weekdays, but later is definitely better for us schedule-wise. So what would be some good places to check out? Being Nashville, we mostly have in mind country, bluegrass, and folk but any genre is fine.

Nashville - Four days ending Easter Sunday

Three adults (all in the "mature" demographic) going to be in Nashville from April 17 - 21. We're staying close to downtown, with a car. Already have tickets for Grand Old Opry, so what else would folks recommend. Maybe a Sunday brunch place? Going to get hot chicken, of course.
