Re: Nashville

Look at vrbo's.

Parking for downtown isn't bad, just park at Nissan stadium as long as it isn't game day and it's free. Then walk across the bride to Broadway.

Lane motor museum is awesome if you are interested in weird cars.

Im actually in Nashville now.

Why the fuck would you go that far east to get to Roanoke? It's almost a straight shot down I-81.

Thursday or Friday night - I'd hit Tootsies and Roberts Western World. If the Don Kelly band is playing (house band) @ Roberts, they are very worth the time. Fantastic band.

If you're willing to drive, hit Jack Daniels (90 minutes south). Otherwise, there are a number of small breweries downtown that are cool.

I'd also consider hitting up Opryland hotel for the atriums and dinner - it's cool.

Hipster stuff - anything in 12 South.

waterhorse In Nashville, there is an "odd car" musium. It has whole bunch cool vehicals like three wheel cars, amphibious cars and millitary stuff and one wheel motorcycles. Worth seeing if your into that stuff. (Like me)

I think it's on the east side.

Just head to the corner of Second and Broad. You'll see when you get there.

Taurus605 There is a Pinball museum in Center in the Square in Roanoke- it is a lot of fun and you can play all day with one entrance fee.

Cornbeef and Company is right across the street and has some good food. There are also a lot of good local restaurants within walking distance. Center in the Square has a parking deck and you can just walk around from there.

I agree with the Transportation Museum. My kids love it and there is a lot of cool stuff to see inside.

You could drive on the Parkway, but it is 45 mph for most of it and will take a long time to get anywhere. Cops also patrol it and love to catch speeders. I drove it from Roanoke back to Lynchburg/Big Island and it took me what seemed like about 2.5 hours. Don't get me wrong, it is a beautiful drive, but since I live about 15 minutes from it, I have driven most of it throughout Virginia during my lifetime.

Also, parking is ridiculously expensive in Nashville. The price goes up a buck or so every 3-4 blocks as you get closer to the tourist district.

The bar scene in old downtown is very cool though. Not to be missed.
Best to just park where you're staying and Uber. Especially if you're boozing. Hell I've lived here 30+ years and never been to the Cash Museum. What about Cheekwood? Details would help.

the_white_shadow There are brisket quesadillas at Broadway Brewhouse on the strip in Nashville. So fucking tasty.

That makes two things you've been correct about in your time here on PBB.

Parking ranges from $8/day to $7/hour (yes, $7/hour) even within a couple of blocks of each other.

Fer Realz? $20 a head? Oh, and another $20, if ya wanna see Patsy Cline's crap.



I walked in with a group of 3. Ain't no way I'm spending $60, let alone $120, to see a bunch of memorabilia.

blugreenformula Antique Archaeology (American Pickers show) has a shop in Nashville that is pretty cool. Lots of bars and restaurants in the area also. For dinner, go here ----------> Skull's Rainbow Room - Skull's Rainbow Room

The food is the best I have had in Tennessee, and they have a burlesque show also. It's a really good time, but make reservations and ask for seating near the stage.

rockmup If you like Johnny Cash, yes, its worth it. So is the CM hall of Fame. I didn't like the Opry at all.

Do I really want to go to the Grand Ole Opry? Johnny Cash Museum? Do I just want to shop and eat myself into a tizzy? Neither of us have been to either towns. Place to eat are also appreciated.
When you're driving from Pa. to Roanoke you can take the route that uses this.

What to see/do in Roanoke and Nashville

Been a few years since I lived in that area, but downtown Roanoke had some cool bars and restaurants. I donít really remember the names off hand though.

Edit: You can get on the Blue Ridge Parkway around Roanoke. Itís a pretty cool drive.
