Transport from airport – no public option, all private via rental car or Uber, I just checked at it was $75 for an Uber from the airport (BNA, Nashville) to the property. WeI can often arrange for students to pick up participants from the Airport for a good price.

Nearby attractions and outings are often incorporated into events at The Ridge – keep in mind that this would be a longer event over multiple days with some free time scheduled.
