Pin1ShareTweetShare1Email2 SharesI’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.Exploring NashvilleSee 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.Centennial Park ParthenonThis 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.The Parthenon in Nashville, Tennessee, USA is a full-scale replica of the original Greek Parthenon. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)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.CHECK THIS OUT ✴ Bargain Hunt Stores| A Frugal Chicks ParadiseI 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.

You’ve inspired me to create one as this is our last year being stationed in Florida. The Parthenon looks like it was definitely worth being checked off of your list. Blessings to you and your beautiful family! Reply Candice S. March 13, 2014 Thank you. Yeah get out and enjoy yourselves and make some memories! ReplyGot something to say?
