Make Memories in Music City
When you think of Nashville, you think of music—it's long been one of the music capitals of the world. But Tennessee's capital and largest city offers much more—world-class Broadway productions, tours of historic plantations, great dining and shopping experiences, and opportunities to taste some of Tennessee's finest whiskey.
But Nashville's a big and sprawling urban area, with nearly three quarters of a million residents spread out over more than 500 square miles. You don't want to spend your time there navigating its winding streets, looking for a place to park, battling traffic. With a charter bus rental from US Coachways, you can do what you're supposed to do in Nashville—have a great time while someone else handles all the details.
A Charter Bus Rental—Ideal for Any Occasion
The many features and benefits of charter buses make them an outstanding option for any trip to Nashville, including:
- Special events — Whether it's a trip to the Grand Ole Opry, a Titan's game or Broadway in Nashville, there's no better way to get there and back than on a charter bus rental.
- Family gatherings — With a charter bus, you can take the whole family there in safety, comfort and luxury. It's perfect for a graduation party, family reunion, wedding, engagement party, rehearsal dinner, or birthday/anniversary/retirement celebration.
- Business travel — A charter bus makes it easy to get employees to and from a conference, convention, business meeting, training, team-building exercise or company party/event. You can use your travel time productively, prepping employees, debriefing or building esprit de corps.
- School Outings — A charter bus is well-suited for K-12 or college trips, offering safety, comfort and accountability. It's an excellent choice for athletic team travel, class or club events or arts and cultural offerings.

A Charter Bus—The Smart Way to Travel to and from Nashville
When you're taking a bunch of folks to Music City, you have options for getting there and back. When you consider the features and benefits of a charter bus rental, though, it's an easy decision:
- Charter buses offer unmatched flexibility — There's no other mode of transportation that compares. You won't have to choose from a limited number of itineraries or travel on someone else's schedule. With a charter bus, you decide where you want to go, when you want to go there and how long you want to stay. In addition, you can often make changes to your itinerary on the fly.
- Charter buses are more reliable than other modes of transportation — Ever had a flight that canceled or arrived late? You're not alone. One study found that nearly a million air travelers experience delays every single day! With a charter bus rental, because of the extensive network of service providers, it's much easier to get a replacement vehicle if there are mechanical problems. Furthermore, your bus driver has the technology and resources to proactively determine potential traffic problems and find alternate routes that get you to Nashville on time.
- Charter buses let everyone enjoy the trip — With a charter bus rental, you won't have to take charge, watching the clock or checking the map/GPS. You can relax with friends and family while your driver handles all the details. You won't have concerns about missing a connection or losing your luggage—you'll be on the same coach for the entire trip and your bags will always travel with you. There's no TSA line, so you won't have to take off your shoes or empty your pockets, and you can bring your own shampoo or a favorite beverage. There's no "bus mode" setting on any of your devices, either, so you can stay connected at all times.
- Charter buses offer safety and security — You'll have a trained professional operating the bus at all times. In addition, because there's only one way on and off the bus, you won't have unwanted guests. You and your personal items will be safe and secure.
- Charter buses are highly cost - effective—On a charter bus, you'll share many of the costs of travel with your fellow passengers. That typically makes charter a more affordable mode of travel. With the money you save, you can bring back some terrific mementos from Nashville.
- Charter buses offer unparalleled comfort — The seats are larger than you'll find with any type of travel and there's no middle seat! Charter buses offer more leg room than any other mode of transportation. The aisles are wide and you can get up and move about at any time.
- Charter buses let you use the HOV (high occupancy vehicle) lanes — If you've ever been to Nashville, you know what a difference that can make.
- Charter buses let you go green — In a charter bus, you'll share the ride, so you'll take a number of vehicles off the roads. That's good for the planet. Just take a look at the positive impact US Coachways had on the environment in 2018.
Nashville — The Music
Let's face it—it's pretty hard to go to Nashville and not experience the amazing music scene. It may be the beating heart of country music, but it's also a mecca for musicians from many other genres. Don't be misled by names—you won't find a lot of music on Music Row—that's home to the business side of the Nashville music industry. Head downtown instead and take a stroll down Broadway. You'll find everything from honky-tonks and lounges to the Bridgestone Arena, with seating for up to 20,000. You can't make the pilgrimage to Nashville, though, without catching the Grand Ole Opry or taking in a show at the Ryman. The Ryman's downtown, but the Grand Ole Opry is located in Opryland, on the north side of town.
Of course, you can also experience a lot of the history of music in Nashville. Among the top attractions are:
- The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum — Located a couple blocks from Broadway, this museum traces the origins of a uniquely American style of music, but also pays homage to the many great musicians of the last 100 years. Its collection exceeds 2.5 million artifacts.
- The Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum — Housed in the historic Nashville Municipal Auditorium, the MHFM pays tribute to musicians of all genres, featuring instruments played by Hendrix, as well as tributes to some of the all-time great studio musicians.
- The Johnny Cash Museum and Café — This attraction features the largest collection of artifacts in the world associated with the "Man in Black."
- RCA Studio B — Here's where some of the most iconic music in the world was recorded. Elvis, Dolly, Willie and Roy Orbison all recorded here. It's under the auspices of the Country Music Hall of Fame now and tours are available.
…And So Much More
While music runs through just about everything in Nashville, there's plenty more to see and do:
- Historic landmarks and attractions — Take a trip to the Belle Meade Plantation, built in 1853 in the Greek Revival Style. You'll see bullet holes in its columns—a vestige of its role in the American Civil War. Visit the Hermitage, home to Andrew Jackson, the 7th president of the United States. Tour the Civil War House Museum at the Lotz House or walk around Carnton, which served as a field hospital for wounded Confederate soldiers.
- Dining and shopping — Don't leave Nashville without trying its famous hot chicken, found at a number of restaurants across the city. Another tradition in Nashville and throughout the South—the meat and three. Of course, it's nearly impossible to eat a meal in Nashville without a plate of biscuits on the table.
Nashville is also a popular destination for shoppers, whether you're looking for antiques, artwork, western wear or high-end merchandise. You'll find just about anything along Lower Broadway, from boutiques to used guitar shops. Other local favorites include SoBro, Marathon Village, the Gulch and Opry Mills.
- A taste of Tennessee spirits — Visit Nelson's Green Brier Distillery, more popular than Tennessee legend Jack Daniels before prohibition. You can also tour the Nashville Craft Distillery or Prichard's. Nashville also boasts a number of craft beer breweries, including Yazoo, Jackalope and the Tennessee Brew Works.
