Anyone Roadtripping to Nashville in September?
« on: March 16, 2017, 12:42:18 AM »
Just curious if anyone was road tripping to see the cats destroy Vanderbilt in Nashville? Bought tickets today and trying to figure out where people may be staying, what to do, any info on tailgates. Have only traveled for one bowl game (schedule was prepped well by kstate athletics) but trying to make this trip fun and full of as much purple as possible!

if you want a football trip that is full of as much purple as possible, come to a home game. just enjoy Nashville, and don't care about anything K-State except for the game.

I'll be there.  Agree with Scott in that the game is an excuse to go party in Nashville for the first time.

If you spend some time in the area a few hours east is Great Smoky Mountains National Park (and incredibly weird and kitschy Pigeon Forge and Sevierville).

Thinking about making the trip
KU football is a sleeping giant and always has been - beems

If LHC Bill Snyder had been hired at KU years ago, we'd have a national championship in football and a couple more BCS bowls. - beems

If you're interested in a bunch of Elvis Presley's crap (or even Taylor Swift's) you can find some in the Country Music Hall of Fame.

If you're going on the weekend, the traffic around Sevierville/Pigeon Forge (Dollywood area) is awful. If you have the flexibility to go during the week, it's much more enjoyable.

The Gatlinburg area suffered a horrible wildfire a few months ago. It destroyed a lot of cabins. If you wanted to go there, you'd probably want to make reservations in advance (b/c of the lower availability).

When I think of Vanderbilt I think of Duluth underwear for some reason.

Nashville reminds me of a more compact, less hipstery Austin.

It's better if you know people and don't simply do touristy crap the whole time.

Does listening to live music and drinking in bars downtown qualify as "touristy crap"?  It's pretty fun.

I don't live there, so I'm not sure of the answer. Here's a thread with a lot of Nashville residents that post in it:

https://www.the-mainboard.com/index.php?threads/nashville-thread-now-with-info-in-the-op.120296/

I would also try signing up and starting a thread on http://www.volnation.com/forum/. A lot of posters on there live in the midstate.
