Default Bowling Green trip

Planning on a trip to Gulf Shores Alabama in February. I would like to stop in Bowling Green for the museum and the factory tour.
Then to Nashville and American Pickers store and what ever else in Nashville.
Any heads up for planning or advice is welcome.

The tours will be suspended until the C8 comes online. Probably late spring 2019.

Pretty cool classic car sales and showroom right across the street from the Corvette Museum.

If you like drag racing, Beech Bend park is a great place to go.

https://www.beechbend.com/dragstrip/racing-schedule/

Lot's of newer motels at exit 22/I 65, six miles south of the museum.

Lots of music related places in Nashville - Ryman, bars on the strip, etc. Just Google places of interest Nashville.

Two very cool sites not far out of your way going south is the Jack Daniels Distillery tour. Really fun and the little town of Lynchburg is very quaint. The whole Jack Daniels story is fascinating and the tour guide will keep you entertained. Then the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville is an amazing collection of our nation's space heritage seeing a real Saturn V, moon hardware, etc. You will drive past a standing Saturn 1B rocket at the first Alabama rest stop on 65 passing from Tenn to AL.

Not sure what your interests are, but those sites most everyone will not regret seeing.

Cheers

Thanks everybody!
Interests, yes.
We have toured the space center in Houston,
Drag racing, liquor, Corvettes and now street rods again.
Spent half my money on those things, the rest I just wasted.
