The Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center celebrated its 20th anniversary April 2. The occasion was marked with a reception for city partners, officials and group customers, as well as social media posts with interviews from opening team leaders who still work at the hotel.

Hotel officials also announced plans to renovate its Old Hickory Steakhouse this year, with the restaurant closed for renovations in April and reopening in November.

Looking ahead

The Gaylord Texan’s water park Paradise Springs opens May 17-19th on the weekends and starting May 24 will be open every day for the duration of the season.
