Travel Guide: Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville, Tennessee is the capital of the state and is thee place for all the folks who want a laid back vacation. I've traveled to Nashville twice so far and I had a pleasant time on both occasions. It's such a big contrast to the big city while at the same time being the big city of Tennessee. 

Flying: How To Get There 

I flew with Southwest Airlines (my favorite airline by the way) and it was just about an hour from Chicago. Quickest plane ride of my life so far! We landed at BNA Nashville International Airport swiftly and safely from Midway International Airport. 

The first time I traveled there was via Greyhound. I know a lot of folks don't care for traveling via buses, but it was a smooth trip. It took about 7 hours to drive from Chicago with two stops. 

Ways to get there:
  • BNA Airport
  • Driving
  • Greyhound 
  • Megabus 
  • Amtrak (only stops at Memphis)
