This is "the" place to kick your spurs up in Music City. The dance floor is the largest in Nashville, and the music and dancing are virtually nonstop. If showing off your moves makes you hungry, the kitchen offers a full lunch and dinner menu and the bar serves up frosty mugs of your favorite imported and domestic brews. This place is perfect for a night out with friends, a birthday party or for "boot-scootin'" with your sweetheart.
Established in 2002, the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville began with the donation of 70 vehicles from avid car enthusiast, Jeff Lane. Since its inception, the LMM has come to acquire over 300 unique and rare automobiles to the delight of visitors. Housed in the former Sunbeam Bakery, this large, 40,000 foot warehouse perfectly showcases one-of-a-kind vehicles like a 1975 Maserati Bora which can go 0-60mph within six and a half seconds and tops out at 165mph. The indoor kid's play area is a great distraction for the little ones while parents enjoy looking around.
The museum contains one of the world’s largest showcase displays featuring hundreds of personal items from Willie and his many friends. Visit and you’ll see tributes to Patsy Cline, Porter Wagoner, Dolly Parton, Faron Young, Mel Tillis, Webb Pierce, Marty Stuart, Connie Smith, Jeannie Seely and many other country music legends. The space also features Nashville’s largest souvenir store where you’ll find "one stop shopping" for all of your Nashville, Willie Nelson and country music related souvenirs.
When you are looking for a little more than your average tour of the Music City, climb aboard the funniest bus in town. The Jugg Sisters are your hostesses and they will have you laughing and singing all afternoon. As you visit all the major attractions in the city, you will hear the satirical and very risqué commentary of the sisters while riding in comfort on their tacky pink bus. NashTrash Tours is not a very sophisticated ride, as alcohol is allowed to be consumed on the bus, so you might be best to leave the kids at home. If you don't mind the overall "hillbilly" theme, you're sure to have a grand time.

Cloud 12 is tucked away inside the Wonders on Woodland store in the Five Points district in Nashville's historic East End. Located on the second floor of a converted Victorian home, Cloud 12 offers guests a beautiful selection of high-quality original paintings by locals and antique furniture. While the prices at Cloud 12 are significantly higher than what you'll see at the other two shops in Wonders on Woodland, the quality is well worth the price. Cloud 12 is a must-see stop for art collectors visiting the Nashville area. -Lynn-nore Chittom
