Tennessee Transportation

  • Car/parking

    Nashville Transportation

    Getting downtown involves driving through a lot of road construction - so a stick shift is not fun. Once there it's fairly easy to drive around, but there isn't anywhere to park unless you want to pay. Believe it or not, finding a free parking space in San Francisco is a piece of cake compared to this! I was wishing I'd taken the city bus like last...

  • Trolley

    Memphis Transportation

    These run quite often, go near most attractions in Memphis not airconditioned and opened windows bring in bugs. If you are disabled or elderly you will have to call MATA and let them know 2 weeks before you come to visit so that they can issue you a proper id. Once you get this you will not have to pay full fare. Having an id from your own state...

  • Public Transit

    Nashville Transportation

    The Nashville bus system covers most areas you'll want to see within the city, runs on time, and is relatively safe & clean. The drivers were a big help in figuring out how to get around & where to get off the bus. If you're on a budget, this is a great way to save $ on a few days of rental car fees. A bus pass for one week of unlimited rides was...

  • Mud Island Monorail

    Memphis Transportation

    Saturday July 6th, Noelle Lori-Elizabeth Teel, Tony and I visited Mud Island River Park in Memphis Tn. For only $10 each, you take the tram across the Mississippi River to the middle of the river to the Park and tour the Museum and enjoy the outside park areas including Picnic areas and concert areas..a must see!!! — at Mud Island River Park.

  • Ride MATA

    Memphis Transportation

    While the Trolley part of MATA is relatively safe and fun, I would NEVER suggest that a tourist take the city bus anywhere. I made the mistake of doing that while attempting to get to Graceland, and it was absolutely horrible. Lots of beggars, thugs, just a very generally unsafe situation. We were so stressed out by it that we ended off getting off...

  • By Road

    Memphis Transportation

    I called 250 PEABODY PLACE GARAGE (EAST END OF PEABODY PLACE MALL) 901-545-0351. It's actually Republic Parking. The parking fee is $12.00 per day and the facility is secure. There is no shuttle service but there are cabs available. They indicated that it was easy to catch a cab at 5 AM to the train station to catch the 6:50 AM City of New Orleans...

  • By Air

    Memphis Transportation

    Memphis International is one of the main US-cargo airports and the number one FedEx-hub. Obviously if you travel to Memphis you will probably not arrive in a FedEx-box. So I should add that Memphis also is a huge airport when it comes to passenger aircrafts. About 400,000 planes (136,000 cargo planes) arrived and departed from Memphis International...

  • McGhee Tyson Airport

    Call for flight rates and itinery, coming from out of town, may be a delay flight in non-direct schedules*McGhee Tyson is the closest metropolitan airport available unless you drive to Atlanta, Ga. or Nashville, Tn.

  • Tennessee D O T

    If you are patient, you can find useful tourists' information on the website for the Department of Transportation for Tennessee.http://www.tdot.state.tn.us/ provides links to construction information, live highway camera views, maps.http://www.tdot.state.tn.us/travel.htm gives access to weather reports, construction advisories, more maps

  • Take back road to Gatlinburg or Pigeon...

    The main road into Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg (Highway 441) is crowded and clogged with traffic during the summer months and weekends, especially during the peak months. You may be able to save time coming in from the South taking Wears Valley Road from Townsend (Highway 31 from Alcoa) or take Middlecreek Road to the north from Sevierville to...

  • Taking the Train at Steele Creek Park

    Steele Creek Park (admission $1) in Bristol, TN is a great place to spend the day. Along with the requisite playgrounds and picnic pavilions, as well as a trail around the lake, Steele Creek has a choo-choo that loops around next to the lake. Adults can ride, too!

  • Busiest times to travel in the Smokies

    Remember, if your traveling to the Smokies, it is bumper to bumper during October (peaking of the leaves season, or Fall foiliage) and November into December with the holiday crowds. Save time and money and call ahead to reserve your place early and avoid confusion.

  • Taurus Rental

    To get to and from Nashville, we flew via Toronto on a 2-hour connecting flight with Air Canada. I had booked a rental car from Budget before leaving for Nashville - the rate was a fantastic $53 for 2 days with unlimited mileage (picked up at Airport and dropped off downtown). I ended up getting a Ford Taurus and it was a nice performing car - no...

  • How to get there and how to get around...

    Try the two main aiports at Memphis and Nashville. Note, there are more airports, including the one in Knoxsville, but getting there will cost you way more!Either rent a car or take the bus :). The roads of Tennesse are beautiful and easily accessible.

    Both Nashville and Memphis have international airports. Memphis is a major hub for Northwest airlines and there are often great deals between Memphis and other Northwest/KLM Cities, even outside the US. Check Northwest's website at www.nwa.com every Wednesday for new specials called Cyber Savers available only on their website. Sometimes they have...

    (New photo from my recent trip). If you fly, Nashville is the major hub, and is the most inexpensive airfare. I've checked into flying into Memphis from Detroit, and it is three times the cost of flying to Nashville. From Detroit, Northwest and Southwest airlines is the best way to go.Drive your car, or a rental car. Tennesee has excellent...
