Flights from Nashville

Nashville International Airport (BNA) is a joint commercial and military airport on the southeastern side of the city. It serves almost 10 million passengers a year. Both Seaport Airlines and budget giant Southwest use BNA as a Focus City, which means it’s usually easy to find cheap flights from Nashville. You’ll most likely arrive in the main commercial terminal, which currently has 3 open concourses, A, B, and C. (D was closed as a cost-cutting measure some years ago.) Getting into the city is easy, and there’s an inexpensive city bus route dedicated to the airport which runs from about 7am until 10pm. You also have the usual options of taxis, hotel shuttles, and rental cars.

Stuff to do in Nashville

Nashville has a lot more to offer, but you can’t resist the power of a good country song. The first stop for most visitors is the legendary Grand Ole Opry, a weekly show that has seen all the greatest stars of country music shining from its stage since 1925. The ghosts of guitars past are still palpable in this place, but exciting new acts debut all the time. Next, you have to reserve an afternoon for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Live music and constantly changing exhibits keep things fresh. At night, what you might call bar-hopping or pub-crawling anywhere else is called “honky-tonking” here, and it’s an institution. Start on Broadway and move on to historic Ryman Alley.

If you manage to get your fill of music, spend a day going back in time at the preserved Belle Meade Plantation, pay a visit to the Tennessee State Museum, take some time to tour U.S. President Andrew Jackson’s home The Hermitage, or take a cruise on a paddlewheel boat.

Advice to Tourists Visiting Nashville

The weather here is unpredictable pretty much year-round, with flash thunderstorms and temperatures of 70 to 90 degrees from April through September. Just be sure to pack for a range of conditions. If it’s wet there’s always a cozy songwriter’s cafe to duck into. And if it’s not you’ll find relief in a tall glass of iced tea.
