Naturally Stellar | My Nashville Bucket List

I’m not sure if I mentioned this but I am officially a Nashville Girl! It’s been a long time coming but I’m finally here & so ready to get out and about to make some new discoveries.  To help me get started,  I created a Nashville Bucket List full of the places and things I’d like to see and experience.

See I’m the type of person that really likes to experience the cities that I live in.  If I haven’t memorized the roads yet, I like to hop in my car, set my Google Maps or Scout app and GO!  I could never for my life understand people who live in a place all of their lives and never venture out to see what their city, town or state has to offer.  I mean I know some people who have never left a side of their city to see what the other side is like. That’s crazy right?  I mean how would you ever know, if you don’t at least try?

I like to believe that I’m a little adventurous, thanks to my Dad.  When I was growing up he would always pile the fam in the car and just drive. We may have been poor, but he made sure we always had 2 things, food & gas LOL!!  We’d leave the city for the country looking for fishing spots, game farms, state parks, country stores or pretty much anything we came across and I don’t recall my dad ever using a map.  We just drove.

But anyway,  I said all of that so that you’d get a better understanding of my goals for my new NashVegas life.  I created this Nashville Bucket List on one of my Pinterest Boards that shows some of the places I intend to experience this year.  I’m not sure about how many I’ll get through by year-end but I’m gonna try to do as many as I can. Plus, I’m sure I’ll keep adding to the list, so my adventures will likely continue for years.

This past weekend I visited The Parthenon, in West End Nashville, which is a  replica of the real Parthenon in Athens, Greece.  Inside is a history museum and Art Gallery on the 1st floor.  The Second Level houses a 42 foot statue of the Goddess Athena and her massive shield with ugly Medusa heads and all.  Both the Statue & the building are full-sized replicas of the originals.

Athena, Nike and Shield, Nashville Bucket List

I had a lot of fun with my peeps (and by peeps I mean my hubby & son :) ) looking at all the beautiful oil paintings & sculptures. Oh and Athena is huge!  I think her big toenail is about the size of my head LOL!

The Parthenon is really beautiful inside. The architecture and attention to detail that the replica Builders/Artists/Sculptors had is awesome.

I think one of my favorite features are these massive double doors in the Treasury Room, with inlaid animal heads.  The doors are solid metal and looked to be about 6-8 inches thick. It’s really impressive.

Surrounding the Parthenon, is a beautiful urban park. In fact, I came back to Centennial Park the next day and had a picnic with my Son while the Hubster (my Hubby) got some work done.

Well that’s all for now but keep following my little mini adventures as I check them off one-by-one from my Nashville Pinterest Board.  I hope this encourages you to get out and explore wherever you are.   Until Next Time Stars.
