Chicago to Nashville - what's in the middle?  (3 Answers)

Driving my 83 yr. old mom down to Nashville for a few days from Chicago, leaving Tuesday in early June to see family on Thursday. Is there any place sorta close or on the way worth stopping at? I'm thinking maybe a few hours radius of Nashville. She can walk, but she's not a hiker. Loves historic stuff, gardens, events. Maybe Tuesday night arrive late and stay outside of Nashville and do something fun Wednesday and drive in to Nashville Wed. Afternoon. Ideas for a good stopping point? Thanks!!!

Lodging, food, entertainment

We are 6 women, early 70s, in fairly good shape. We will be driving from Rockford, Illinois to Nashville in late September. We plan to stop overnight on the way. What is the best location for lodging and any hotel/motel recommendations would be appreciated? We are looking for a good location, cleanliness and affordability. My husband and I visited Nashville a few years ago and we ate at a restaurant where the wait staff entertained the diners with some great singing. What is the name of that place? What are the best tours to take? A couple of us would have trouble with a lot of walking without rest stops. TripAdvisor fans were a great help for our last trip to Nashville. I hope we can get some good advice this time. Thanks

Experience Nashville whitout driving a car...  (2 Answers)

I have never been to Nashville but from what I´ve heard it is a pretty big city but with a small "city center". A lot of things is going on there, country music ofcourse, but the locations seems to be spread out.

If a just want to stay in the central parts of the city (a hotel close to the Greyhound station and where all the skyscrapes are) for a few days, will I find enough entertainment to be worth the trip? I´m gonna be on a road trip from New Orleans and it is a pretty long way to go from there.

I want to discover country music, the Country music hall of fame and other must see-attractions and locations in Nashville.

tour from nashille to momoth caves in kentucky  (1 Answer)

We will be visiting Nashville next july and saw that the mamoth caves national park isnt that far from it in Kentucky. The probleme we are facing is we will not have a car so i wondered if there were any guided tour, transportation or solution for us to see the caves. The best scenarios would be a small tour operator that could bring us there and back in nashville afterward... but if there is any busses going there, that could drop us off at the caves that could do.. we are also going to chicago by grayhound bus after the nashville stop so it could be a stop along the way.... any ideas? we would like to see them. thanks.
