Doable but a 10 to 12 hr straight drive, Id f you rented a car would obviously be cheapest way to go, plan on taking 2 days to get there and two days back, so probably will be 2 weeks Orlando/1 week trip for nashville.
If it's somewhere you want to go, go for it. I've gone through Nashville on the way up to St. Louis. We usually stop just North of Atlanta for the night, but I'd proably just drive straight through if I were only going that far. The main thing to be concerned about is Atlanta traffic. It's awful anywhere near a weekday rush hour, so you should plan around those. It's a simple and easy drive, at least as easy as 12 hours in the car can be.
Oh, and two things to also look into are mileage limits on the rental car and any retrictions on taking it out of state. I've heard some companies don't allow that, but I've ever really checked.
thats a nice birthday present, canny drive like, see if its cheaper to fly, hope it works out for you...
Thanks for your replies, will look at taking car out of state costs and also flights. Even more planning than my normal trip to Orlando!
The only out of state excess I have seen is driving to New York but check anyway
Sounds like a great idea
What makes me laugh is that we don't turn a hair about driving long distances in the US but I regularly drive from Scotland to Liverpool and hate every mile on the M6
It's all about the wide open roads :-))
i drive for a living, but thats a good way, but, try sky scanner and see if you can get an idea of prices, deffo worth a shot...
Not a problem if you have 2 drivers, I've done many road trips including Orlando to New Orleans and back. Just do your homework on what interstates you need to use and work out the distance using the calculator on google maps. If 2 are driving, I would have a stop over on the way there and do it in one hit on the way back. I've been to Nashville, if you like music you will enjoy 2nd Street and Broadway, you can also ride a stern wheeler paddle boat on the river.......good luck.
