The Parthenon, Nashville, Tennessee. A full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens. Built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. Today the Parthenon, which functions as an art museum, stands as the centerpiece of Centennial Park, a large public park just west of downtown Nashville.
Music City comes by its name honestly. At any given time, there's country on at the Grand Ole Opry or the Ryman Auditorium, bluegrass at Robert's Western World, and singer-songwriters at the Bluebird Cafe. But when you need a break from toe-tapping, head for hot chicken at Hattie B's, worked off with a run around the Parthenon in Centennial Park.
