Tourist in your own town

Playing hometown tourist in Nashville is a blast! 

You know how you can live in a city all of your life and not know much about it?  Well, that changed last weekend for me.  We visited The Parthenon which is an exact replica of the original in Greece.  Located in Centennial Park, named that because it was the site of the Centennial Exposition in 1897, The Parthenon houses an art gallery on the first floor with changing exhibitions.  One floor up houses the display of parts of the pediments from Nashville's Parthenon before it's renovation.  There are descriptions of each piece and what it represents in Greek mythology.  In the center of that room is a nearly 42' statue of Athena with Nike, the goddess of victory, placed in her right hand standing at 6'4".  It's amazing, not to mention the 7.5 ton solid bronze doors at the end of the room!Parthenon

Centennial Park is one of Metro Nashville's Parks and is located near Vanderbilt University.  The grounds of the park have an art center, a small lake with geese and ducks you can feed, as well as being able to fish.  There is also a beautiful garden which is the site of many weddings and photo shoots.

 

What to do next as a Nashville hometown tourist?

There's so much to do, I don't know what's next but when I do, I'll be sure to have something to say!

I agree.  We don't tour our own home town like we should.
