  •  Over the years Nashville has often be referred to as “Nash Vegas.” My wife and her friend recently took the drive down I-65 to Music City. 

    Upon arriving at The Comfort Inn Downtown which would serve as their base for their all girls’ weekend they found Nashville truly is the Vegas of the South. 

    Downtown is packed with action 24/7 and there is a multitude of ways to get around town from party buses to golf carts willing to drive you to and from your destinations for just a tip!

    Proctor has logged around three million miles in those 34 years, the past 24 spent with FedEx.
