    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.

    After checking in at the Parthenon on 4/16 don't check in anywhere else until 6 or 6:30 or you won't be counted for the swarm.

    For those wondering what the hell a replica of the Greek Parthenon is doing in Tennessee, visit this. Your questions won't be answered but visit it anyway.

    Make sure you take a look around the park too, there are some interesting sights like trees with twisted trunks, and plenty of swings where you and your loved ones can sit down and relax!

    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.
