Hello Nashville !
Have been browsing Trip Advisor and noting, with interest, the various Q & A's relating to the City and it's amenities etc.
My partner and I will be visiting late March -early April. Flight booked and, for better or worse (?) also Hotel - Guest House Inn & Suites in Vanderbilt area. Would appreciate any comments about same and the surrounding area.
As replies to various topics have already touched on, I have already spent many hours surfing and browsing for local info relating to all areas of interest in and around the City. I am still not sure whether more is less or vice versa between the "must go - must see - must do" and the various cautionary comments made in respect of certain areas and activities etc
As mentioned in other postings made by fellow Forumers, we intend to visit Memphis (couldn't travel this far and not !) either by Greyhound or rental car. Have any of you, or friends you know, done the trip by either means ? Noted comment by "jlsk" that the Comfort Inn do or will be running a trip there - could he/she confirm if that was for their Hotel residents only ?
The Greyhound arrangements seem pretty straight forward and would fit in well as we intend staying a couple of nights at the Peabody (my partner is into Ducks !) Has "volrichard" any further suggestions relating to his comment about the Greyhound Station?
Item last is a request for any suggestions as to known local car rental companies - comparative prices apart, the main stumbling block in this area seems to be that of insurance cover etc.
Also, is driving in the city really such a nightmare in line with comments seen on a variety of sites?
I suppose only time will fully answer all these and other questions on reflection post the vacation.
Thanks in advance to anyone who might have the time to offer any advice,
Best wishes to all.
