Priscilla was born in Bristol, England in 1967. She toiled in public transportation until the 1980s, when she begrudgingly entered early retirement. She spent some of it in Liverpool, and some in Flitwick, but eventually succumbed to the promise of greener pastures in the U.S.—she moved to Kansas in 1993, and eventually settled in Tennessee. Priscilla is the double-decker bus that Rufus, the owner of Nashville Double Decker, loads up with guests before touring the city. The idea for a bus-tour company came to him before his second deployment with the Tennessee Army National Guard on a visit to Nashville. He took a trolley tour that left him disappointed. The tour didn’t cross any of the city’s bridges, and he couldn’t enjoy some of Nashville’s best views thanks to the trolley’s closed top. So while Rufus was still overseas, he convinced a friend to drive Priscilla across the country from Washington, and now she shows guests the sites around Nashville.

NavCal River Rides' canopied boat sends visitors floating down the picturesque Tennessee River, acquainting them with the history and hijinks of steamboat captains and Civil War veterans. The seasoned skipper channels the spirit of Samuel Clemens, spinning family-friendly yarns and sharing 19th-century mustache-combing tips during a 90-minute cruise aboard a craft equipped with a restroom and $1 refreshments. Additionally, youngsters can hone their navigation skills while steering the vessel on the way past the University of Tennessee Knoxville’s famed “body farm” forensic-anthropology center. On select dates, Ms. Drusilla hops aboard to divulge the spookier details of the river’s history during a 45-minute haunted history tour that regales guests with frightening tales of ghostly barges and terrifying legends of a beast that is both cat and fish. NavCal also provides river-taxi cruises to home football games that depart from South Knoxville Bridge, The Landings Riverfront Apartments, and River Towne Condominiums.

Mayfield Farm & Nursery is set up like a theme park of autumnal adventure. On one visit, you can do everything from rooting for your favorite pig in the pig races to picking a giant gourd in the pumpkin patch. It's also the kind of place where tractor tires not only turn into swings for soaring on but are also piled up as mountains for youngsters to conquer. Nearby, a giant corn maze invites all to wander through its swaying stalks in search of the elusive exit and a haunted trail set on the burial site of a 19th-century judge frightens all those who dare enter with unpaid parking tickets.
