Centennial Park, located in midtown Nashville, is home to Nashville’s Parthenon — a replica of the Athenian Parthenon and featuring American art galleries. This park is also a scene for local musicians, food trucks and hipster locals. Our route starts by circling the lake right next to the Parthenon then continues on to tour the lovely campus of Vanderbilt University. This route is 2 miles from downtown with plenty of street parking nearby.
For more mileage, add on by enjoying some of the Vanderbilt campus and the other roads in the area. There are some lovely streets and homes.
