    Before Nashville was "Music City" it was called the "Athens of the South" due to the large number of universities in the city. Get here by hopping off our Music City Trolley Hop!

    The Parthenon was built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition and is located in Centennial Park. It's definitely worth making the trip to see if passing through or visiting Nashville.

    Bring a beach chair and laptop for a wonderfully peaceful place to work amongst the columns. The north side gets less sun making it nice even in the mid-80s. Move to the south side in cooler weather.
