Vehicles of many types and nationalities here- from Japan to Russia! Mainly autos, but also included motorcycles and "flying cars," as well as a huge military transport! Went to spend an hour, stayed for almost 3!

I thought I was an auto enthusiast until I visited here. So many unique and interesting cars, motorcycles, bikes, and planes. We spent two hours. Could have spent four. If you like cars, especially European cars, you'll love this place.

This is the car museum for folks who like the quirky and unique. Cars from Eastern Europe? Sure. Propeller driven cars? At least a couple. Amphibious Corvair Pickup? Why not? Military vehicles too big to put indoors? Of course. If you want to see American...More

I had no idea Nashville had such a cool museum! Very rare European and American cars, motor cycles, bicycles, planes, even a play area for the kids! We loved it!

We had a great time in Nashville and were able to do everything we planned to do. We enjoyed the current art exhibit at Cheekwood, but I guess it was too early to see everything in bloom. It was overcast and chilly the day we went anyway. Belle Meade was amazing and our tour ran long as the guide normally works in the tailor shop and was really good! The wine tastings were barely tastes at all (we lived in silicon valley and went to wine country often so we know wine tastings) and...More

Nice TR, thanks for posting. As a local, I concur on the high levels of smokers in the Broadway area, but I guess that's what people do, but it can be overwhelming at times in this day and age of "healthier air" in most places. As for the beggars (homeless population). It is sad and will continue to be sad as long as they know they "can make a living" in Nashville. For a while a few years back, there was a big crackdown on panhandling, but the current political administration evidently...More

Also, if we had time might do a Segway tour, and I saw the Nashville Pedal Tavern tour, which looked like fun! Would probably do that in an evening so it wont break into our days anyway A Segway would prefer to do in the morning

Suggestions for lodging/attractions/breweries in Nashville? (9 Replies)
My family Christmas celebration has been moved to the weekend after Christmas, and I have the whole week off, so this has given me an opportunity to go somewhere over Christmas. To keep costs down, I want to go somewhere within driving distance, and am thinking of Nashville. I am looking for a few suggestions: 1) What is the best area to stay in? We will have a car, but do like to walk if possible. It would be great to stay somewhere close to night life that we could walk to and have a...More

I would lose the Belmont Mansion and hit Cheekwood or Belle Meade Mansion, or else historic Franklin. The Frist is very nice. My dad loves the Lane museum, I've never been. I second Yazoo. The rest are really restaurants first, but Bosco's is better than Blackstone, IMO. Big River is downtown and has good food. I agree with the Vanderbilt area. Not sure if you'll get your price. You might try Priceline and specify that area. I would do Jack Daniels instead of Dickelor a winery....More
