Nashville - See the Sights and Sounds
Discover why Nashville is home to some of the most famous country musicians of all time as you drive around in your Nashville car rental. The city offers live music venues on almost every corner. If you’re looking for a bigger venue, the Grand Ole Opry or Country Music Hall of Fame should suffice.
Take a trip back in time and visit one of the last remaining “section houses,” in its original condition, when you tour the Coal Miner Railroad Section House Museum. As you walk through the fully restored home of the railroad employees, you’ll discover what life was like during the progressive era in the United States. The house offers a gallery of artifacts, pictures, and memorabilia from those who built White County.
Another historic location to visit is The Mill at Lebanon. Known as the former Lebanon Woolen Mill, the restored building is listed on the National Register of Historic places. Today, the mill is used as a mixed facility, where residents and tourists can enjoy unique retail shops, restaurants, museums and galleries located throughout the 200,000-square foot hub.
Explore the Heritage of Memphis
You won’t miss a beat during your stay along the Mississippi River, at least not while driving around in your Memphis rental car. Roll your windows down and turn the radio off while you drive around Beale Street Historic District. You’ll hear live music from every direction. Stop by the Stax Museum and learn about the founding fathers of soul before heading over to Sun Studio. This particular music center was used by The King himself to record some of his most recognizable songs. After seeing where Elvis worked, take a tour of Graceland to see how The King spent his leisurely time living large in Tennessee.
Elvis may have made his mark on music history, but there is a lot more heritage to Memphis then the King of rock and roll. Take a drive down to the National Civil Rights Museum at the old Lorraine Motel. You can also learn more about the Civil War at Shiloh National Military History Park, where the first major battle occurred. Experience the architecture on a tour, around the town of Le Grange as you take a trip back in time. The plantations offer stately antebellum mansions, long verandas, and beautiful land, filled with magnolia trees for you to explore.
