Getting Around

As with most American states, travelling around Tennessee is best done by hiring a car, hitting the open road and driving between cities yourself. For those who don’t wish to drive, there are regular buses and flights between the major cities. There is no option for rail travel to the central or eastern parts of the state.

In Nashville and Memphis, you will find public transport in the form of buses, trains, and taxis, plus some hotels run shuttle buses to the down town areas.
