Travel & Vacation: Nashville – Parthenon Park

P1110177c

Our family was able to spend a couple days in Nashville, Tennessee recently.  We had a little bit of time to burn before heading to our next adventure so we stopped at one of the parks near our hotel.  The contained a full-scale replica of the Athenian Parthenon.  It was massive!  The re-creation was built in 1897 for Tennessee’s Centennial Exposition.  The Parthenon represents classical architecture.  It was pretty neat seeing it!

If you look closely you can see two people on the steps of the Parthenon (that is Brina and Karlie).  They look tiny!
