Flight Park aims to streamline the airport experience by maintaining easy-access satellite parking lot just four minutes from the Nashville International Terminal. Travelers simply pull up to a covered vestibule, where a valet takes the wheel, and attendants help cart your luggage to an airport-bound Mercedes van. While you’re away, a 24-hour surveillance system keeps an eye on vehicles in outdoor and climate-controlled lots, and on-site mechanics can attend to dormant carriages with washing, detailing, and oil change services. Flight Park offers corporate rates and rewards frequent travelers with Flight Club, a program that gives clients points they can exchange for free parking, car washes, or auto detailing services.
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is a colorful stage show that mimics the annual production in New York City, boasting a 90-minute romp through song, dance, and reenactments of traditional Christmas scenes. Though special effects and revamps have been added to the show during its 77-year history, the Rockettes and their master of ceremonies, Santa Claus, know better than to mess with what works and have tastefully avoided pandering to America's obsession with Hulk-related products and bombastic laser-light shows. Expect to see all your favorite numbers, including the teddy bear Nutcracker, the parade of wooden soldiers, the Nativity, and, of course, 1,000 high kicks delivered with military precision.
Music City Dream Cars doesn't need to lure folks in with an elaborate sales pitch?not with a fleet of exotic cars like this. And with a key and the flick of the wrist, cars come to life, such as the 6.5 liter V-12 engine of a Lamborghini Murcielago that roars with the power of 640 tamed horses and the ability to turn any head within eye-shot. Luckily, there are no major barriers to taking the driver's seat: no monthly payments, no need to befriend a British secret agent. Music City Dream Cars rents out high-octane luxury for hours and days at a time.
That Lamborghini?with its orange peel exterior and winged doors?sits alongside approximately 10 other luxury vehicles inside Music City Dream Cars' showroom. Other options include the Tesla Roadster, a two-seat convertible that houses a 248 HP, all-electric engine. The Excalibur Roadster, on the other hand, looks like something out to the 1920s. Music City Dream Cars' staff even refers to this roadster (one of less than 100 ever produced) as ?The Gatsby.?
A trusty team of valets supervises Executive Travel & Parking’s fenced lot every hour of the day, screening all entrants and helping patrons with their luggage. Travelers simply park their cars under the canopy—which saves them from rain or loose airplane feathers—and allow the valet to park the car in the lot. While you’re away, the valets can wash the vehicle or perform an oil change before steering it back under the canopy just prior to your arrival.
A family of six sinks into the plush leather seats of the Lincoln Town Car and watches a DVD together before the driver pulls up to the airport and helps them with their luggage. Sometimes this scenario plays out with a family, and sometimes it’s with a group of business partners, but for the drivers at After Hours Limousines, the goal is always the same—to transport passengers to their desired destinations on time with professional courtesy. In addition to regular airport visits, the company’s sleek cars, party buses, coaches, and trolleys are often trusted to take clients around town for a night of clubbing, from wedding ceremonies to receptions, and to bring clients to meetings. With limo service packages, clients can take more creative outings by customizing arrangements for an excursion to a sporting event or to Arrington Vineyards for a picnic, wine tasting, and a reminder of what fresh air tastes like. To accommodate budget travelers, the fleet also includes a minivan that can seat up to six.
