When you fall in love with a pursuit, you like to go to the source. Your affinity for art is indulged with a visit to The Louvre of Paris or MOMA in NYC. When you decided you were interested in surfing, you hit the beaches of Maui. You’re a wise wanderer, after all, so you know the best way to maximize an experience is by getting off the couch and seeking out a world-class venue. When it comes to music, there is perhaps no better place to feel rhythm down to your bones than Nashville, Tennessee.
From the moment you land in Music City at Nashville International Airport (BNA), your love affair with melody begins. Live music performances at the airport's four stages brighten up the trek to baggage claim and inspire you to start writing your own jam. As you’ll soon discover, Nashville is more than just the epicenter of the country music industry and the Songwriting Capital of the World. The city also serves up generous portions of Southern cuisine, historic charm, and Tennessee whiskey. Book one of our top flights to Nashville on Travelocity today, and soon you’ll be writing your own love song to the capital of Tennessee.
Transportation from BNA
When your Nashville flight lands on the tarmac and you step out into the Tennessee air, you’re practically buzzing with excitement. You can’t wait to get to the nearest jazz club or sink your teeth into a legendary flaky biscuit. The airport is less than 10 miles east of downtown, or an 18-minute drive from the airport's consolidated rental car facility. If you want someone else to take the wheel while you check out the Nashville landscape, you can use the hotel shuttle phone boards to arrange for an airport pickup to your hotel. Taxis and all other ground transportation can be found on the Terminal Ground Transportation on Level 1. If you're traveling with a large group of fellow wise wanderers, arrange for a personal shuttle to transport your party. Transportation is best booked at the same time as your Nashville plane tickets, the better to save enough money for a show at the Grand Ole Opry.
