What are some good day trips around Nashville? Can Memphis and Nashville trip be combined?
Memphis and Nashville are 3-4 hours apart (depending on who you ask). You could probably start the day in one and finish in the other with an activity in both, but you would want to spend the night in one of the towns.
Memphisto Nashville is just shy of 3 hours. North of Nashville (about 90 minutes) is Mammoth Cave National Park, the longest known cave system in the world (400+miles mapped). This is an easy day trip from Nashville. Jack Daniel Distillery is to the south, and Huntsville is also nearby. NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center History Office is in Huntsville as well as the National Speleological Societyheadquarters. Within Nashville are Cheekwood-Art & Gardens,Ryman AuditoriumNashville ZooCountry Music Hall of FameVanderbilt UniversityTennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC),Printers Alley. Returning to Memphis, you will find Graceland, Pink Palace Family of Museums, Memphis PyramidMud IslandMemphis Zoo.
