On my third trip to Nashville, I was looking for something different to do and came across the Nissan tour that is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays (must call ahead). It was awesome to see almost every stage of the manufacturing process of a car or truck. When you get there, and you must be there 15 minutes ahead of time or you probably will not get in, you sit in the conference room for a 9 minute video overview of what you will see on the tour. Then you are led to a tram where you put on headphones and a very capable tour guide drives you through the plant for almost an hour. The plant is 5 million square feet! You see doors being stamped out of a piece of metal, robots welding the car together, people putting in wiring, seats, carpet, tailgates, etc. etc, etc. You cannot see the paint process as the environment is sterile, of course, but you see the new cars coming off the line, being tested, etc. I cannot imagine anyone not being amazed by watching this process. Very professionally done. Kids over age 5 welcome, I believe.
